If you don't get the gist from the title, that says something about one of us.

Basically an addition to the imperative list that means any monsters in the room will consider this entity a target and try to attack it.

Nice idea. And it would get even better if you could also limit the attraction to smell range, like decoy behaviour.

This is something that is doable, but it does require various pokings with how monsters decide their targets. The same is broadly true for a similar "attracts Stalwarts". Limiting the attraction to smell range falls out these implementations mostly cleanly.

Of course, this shouldn't be an Imperative, because those are kind of problematic. Instead, this is a great example of a behaviour.
