(Perhaps) #color(blue)("incarnation")# or #color(blue)("substantiation")#


I assume that you are looking for a term to express the concept of assigning a person to an inanimate form.


The Black Plague was the Genghis Khan of Western Europe, leaving only desolation in its path.
(Warning; this statement is probably not accurate; its only role is to demonstrate "incarnation").
