Female Infernal Conscriptus Outsider 11
I am leaving Divinity Forge 2.
Sorry. This isn't working for me. I can't have Alosvalophos run my turns every turn either, so it's best if the Orizaba become a static NPC force or something.
I barely have the will to live. My depression is heavier now than it has been in a long time.
Good luck with the rest of the game, everyone. Have fun.
I'll make up an alt for posting soon. In the meantime:
Itzpapalotl rules over Tamoanchan, a verdant realm of lush greenery, fertilised by ground bones and sacrificial blood. She is a goddess of either terrifying obsidian-winged appearance or of unearthly beauty, as she chooses. Her people are the Orizaba, the Obsidian Butterflies, also known as Cihuateteo (divine women). The Orizaba are said to have once been the spirits of women that died in childbirth. Itzpapalotl considered childbirth a form of battle, and so to her these spirits were fallen warriors. She honoured them with beautiful new bodies and returned them to the world to be her servants.
The modern Orizaba are generations removed from their mythic ancestors, now able to live and reproduce normally. Despite there being no males, Orizaba couples are able to create offspring by means of a ritual that produces a seed. The seed, once planted and watered with blood, grows into a large flower bud. It blooms only once, unveiling the child within, then withers.
Physically, an adult Orizaba looks much like a human woman, with dark skin and typically lean physique, though their fingers and toes are sharply clawed. As they age, they develop pale markings on their faces that resemble skulls. Their culture is both highly artistic and bloodthirsty. Living sacrifice is a great honour, giving blood for the next generation to be born. They harness the mystic power from this release of life as well, and most Orizaba are skilled practicioners of the supernatural arts.
An Eidolon's First Summoning
Joshep awoke from the dream feeling something strange, and not just because it had been a particularly pleasant dream.
She was standing there right next to the bed, looking as shocked as he did.
"You, uh, you're real?" he spluttered.
"I'm real!" she replied excitedly, "I have a body! I can talk! I can... I can have sex!"
Joshep had to pull the blankets back over himself as a barrier as the bizarre woman leapt on top of him.
"No, hey, stop! N-not right now!" came his muffled cries.
Obediently, she relented and climbed off him. Joshep peeked out from under the covers. She smiled at him and said,
"As you wish, my summoner."
Joshep paled. "How am I going to explain this to my parents?
A psion (kineticist) would do pretty well with that theme. For a less casty and more combat type, maybe a soulknife (soulbolt) or cryptic. The cryptic, especially, has very close flavour to what you're looking for. Their powers revolve around recognising the patterns in reality and altering them. Play like you're hacking the code of existence. :)
Similar issues have arisen for characters in the past (often as a result of the reincarnation spell).
I had my own solution for it here: Cosmetic Alteration Spells
In hindsight, I probably shouldn't have called the higher level versions 'cosmetic', since it can truly change physical gender and that's not just a cosmetic thing.
