As I wrote, the current main character (usually the Exile, but the first party member as well when the Exile isn't present in the party) cannot have a puppet assigned. Since the Exile is always the main character when present in the party she can never have a Puppet.
But by all means, test it yourself if my experience isn't reliable.
(Connect the dots and you will realize why you don't have the option to let Bao-Dur lead the expedition to the Dxun Tomb. If he is, the Remote will disappear.)
