That's one of the things I like about eidolons: the vague nature of them. It allows for interpretation in game. There's a Legendary Games product, with pregenerated characters for the Carrion Crown AP, where the summoner's eidolon is a manifestation of the soul of a great warrior ancestor.
I wrote an archetype for Chelaxian summoners where the eidolon is a hellbound soul that the summoner is given use of to shape into a new type of fiend, in exchange for their soul at the end of life, of course.
Been tossing around the idea of a summoner whose eidolon is a manifestation of the character's inner will, the childhood "imaginary friend" made real, and another where the eidolon is the Hyde to the summoner's Dr. Jekyll.
