Warlock Pact for Type V DnD

Got stuck with some Pernicious Albion tables, so I shamefully put them off and wrote this for my increasingly anime Dungeons and Dragons not-game instead. It's a new warlock pact, and rather experimental.

At 1st level, your  patron gives you an eidolon, a semisentient spirit from which you gain your magical power. It manifests as any humanoid, elemental, beast, or monstrosity with a CR of 1/4 or lower (with DM approval). Any cantrips or spells you would learn through your Pact Magic, Mystic Arcanum, or Eldritch Invocation class features are in fact acquired by your eidolon. For purposes of line of sight, range, and targeting, the eidolon casts your spells. However, your eidolon can cast any spell with a range of Self on you as if it were a Touch spell. Your eidolon's Charisma score is always equal to yours.
     You can summon your eidolon with an 8 hour ritual and dismiss it with an action. Your eidolon shares your place in the initiative order and follows your commands as best it can, and will instinctively move where you want them to go, but you must take an action to command it to something more complex (Cast Spell, Dash, Disengage, Dodge, Help, etc). You must be able to speak to give your eidolon an order, and if it moves farther than 50 feet away from you, it vanishes into the aether and must be summoned again. The maximum HP of your eidolon is either its default or four times your Warlock level, whichever is higher. If your eidolon dies, you may summon it again by performing the ritual. If you die or fall unconscious, your eidolon vanishes into the aether and must be summoned again.

Starting at 3rd level, you add your proficiency bonus to your eidolon's AC, saving throws, spell saves, spell attack rolls, and proficient skills.

Starting at 6th level, you may command your eidolon as a Bonus Action.

Starting at 10th level, you can summon your eidolon with a 1 hour ritual.

Starting at 14th level, you eidolon can move any distance away from you without vanishing, and you can telepathically communicate with each other regardless of distance.

You still choose from the Fey, Archfiend, or Great Old One pacts, but only gain access to their associated expanded spell list.
