When you begin casting this spell, you force a star vampire you can see within range to remain within range and refrain from attacking you and any secondary casters (except while the casting time is paused). When you finish casting the spell, if the target remains within range and it can hear and understand you, you compel it to carry out a single task you define unless it succeeds on a Charisma saving throw.
