No influence for anyone but the party members. It's possible to emulate the system with a global number which represents the amount of pseudo-influence you have with the puppet. Of course, you wouldn't need to emulate alignment shifts (unless you want to be pernickety about gameplay mechanics) because the player won't see them. It is, of course, a simple matter of checking the player's alignment, comparing it to the influence and setting the NPCs alignment accordingly, of course - if you did feel inclined to do so .
