I'd use if together with Geek Industrial Complex's Companions of the Firmament and Caged Dragon Games' Magical Beast Companions. All three give solid rules for griffins/pegasi/hippogriffs companions and/or aerial combat.
A warlock using the witch spell list and hexes for talents. Familiar needed.
Other class vigilante-like archetypes:
Beautiful Champion (oracle with dual identity... someone said Sailor?)
An alternative version. I wanted to make something along the lines of the Flamboyant Arcana for magi, but regaining panache with a critical spell was so tempting... and so bardic! Which one do you prefer?
New Bardic Masterpiece
Ballad of the Glorious Hero (Oratory, Sing)
Your confident bravados allow you to perform amazing deeds in combat.
Prerequisite: Perform (oratory) 3 ranks, Perform (sing) 3 ranks.
Cost: Feat or 1st-level bard spell known.
Effect: You improvise a loud, boastful list of your glorious victories or menace your opponent describing in vivid colours its inevitable defeat, bolstering your ability to accomplish great deeds. For as long as your performance continues, you gain a number of panache points equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum 1), and can choose any two swashbuckler deeds that can be used by a swashbuckler of your bard level. You can use these deeds by spending temporary panache points granted by this masterpiece, but only while you mantain your performance. You cannot use points from this masterpiece to use deeds from other classes or those gained by feats. You can regain panache while the performance is mantained by dealing a critical hit or a killing blow with a light or one-handed piercing melee weapon, or with a touch or ray spell. Effects that add to, reduce the cost of, or otherwise affect panache or grit don’t affect your number of temporary panache points or the cost of your chosen deeds. When the performance is over, any unspent panache points are lost.
Use: 1 bardic performance round per round.
Action: 1 standard action.
The Advanced Class Guide presented a great many "hybrid archetypes" and class features, giving a class the powers and flavor of another, but you will agree with me that there can be many, many others. Also, some old archetypes are now obsolete with the new rules and need to be rebuilt. For example, now that panache and the Swashbuckler class exist, how should the Swashbuckler archetype for rogues change? And how should the Spirit Ranger be adjusted now that we have rules for shamanic spirits?
Daring Scoundrel (Rogue)
Joining the audacious deeds of a swashbuckler with the subtle mobility of legendary thefts, a daring scoundrel is a romantic figure, a smiling shadow that leaves the rich without their most cherished treasures, and the maidens without their hearts.
Fencer (Ex): At 1st level, the daring scoundrel may select one martial weapon to add to her list of weapon proficiencies. This ability replaces trapfinding.
Rogue Talents: The following rogue talents complement the daring scoundrel archetype: acrobatic stunt, climbing stunt, convincing lie, finesse rogue, offensive defense, positioning attack, powerful sneak, steal the story, and weapon training.
Advanced Talents: The following advanced rogue talents complement the daring scoundrel archetype: crippling strike, entanglement of blades, redirect attack, and unwitting ally.
I have a similar Goddess in my world!
Eala the Swan-Lady
She was a mortal ascended hero who really wanted what was right for the world and the thinking races. She really had faith in the divine, but as she came to know her world's gods better, she had to learn the hard way that even the "good" ones were childish, prepotent and abusive toward mortals- that was not what guides and parents should have been.
So, boys and girls... apparently I wasn't chosen to be in #13.
I created a seducer angel for a book (I don' know if you will ever see that out...). It basically had a "I'm going to show you how better love is if you're good!" attitude and set out to redeem evil beings with love & beauty (never forcing them).

Batman: currently in the Council of Thieves AP as Lord Bruno Leroung, half-elf son of a Leroung scion and an elven paramour. Richest guy in Westcrown; only 3rd level still, but Rogue (Investigator) 1/Monk 2 (LN), and likely to stay Monk the rest of the way. Finally got at least one rank point in every skill that was previously Not Useable Untrained, since that's the way he rolls: La Conoscenza e Potere ("Knowledge is Power"). ;-> Oh, and as he's going after the Shadows plaguing the city (they slew his parents in front of him when he was a child...), he's not going to impress them as a Creature of the Night, but just exactly the opposite as Il Angelo del Notte (complete with fireworks, everburning torches, whatever else would create light, fire, brightness [and he could make with Craft: Alchemy], and give the impression that the good deities have sent one of their servants down to deal with this situation personally...just before he deals with them using whatever special material weapons he can afford [yes]). This angel of the night loves Handy Haversacks and Sleight of Hand. ;->
While I praise your decision to use Italian phrases, I must slightly correct your grammar. ^^La Conoscenza è Potere ("e" without emphasis means "and", not "is")
L'Angelo della Notte (male nouns beginning with a wovel require the determined article "lo" truncated with apostrophe; "notte" is a female noun and requires the female articulated preposition)
...and Batman should be a combination of Investigator/Slayer/Ninja for me. Not Shwashbuckler. He's not jolly and boisterous enough. Maybe an Amateur Swashbuckler.
4. A fated family of Bizarre individuals has been bound for a hundred years to thwart the evil schemes of a powerful vampire, whose blood mixed with theirs at a certain point of their family tree. When the monster awakens after decades, a distant ancestor's spirit calls to arms all his descendants, granting them the power to free their own interior self in a semi tangible form... ^_^
I think that TLaughingMan was talking about the ACG Shaman, while Dukeh555 was talking about the Open Design/Kobold Press Shaman (that's why I said that it would be confusing to have two classes with the same name) :) To answer the first question, I think yes. The ACG Shaman's spirit familiar (and the Houngan archetype's spirit familiar for the OD/KP Shaman) work like familiars in all respects.
