Dual Psyche Character

Suggestions/House Rules/Homebrew

I want to make a NPC with a dual psyche. He started as an Occultist and got tasked with investigating a series of disappearances around a small town. He was sent with a party of bodyguards. On his first day, he discovered a nearby patch of a rare herb fertilized by the magic of a great dragon's corpse, which the townsfolk use in their tea, which he and the townsfolk each had a cup of, but didn't know about it's effects until that night. The herb suppresses social inhibitions and causes cannibalistic behaviours in those who take it. That night, the townsfolk had a feast that he attended, and the main course was his bodyguards. Under the effects of the drugs, he ate them without a care, but the next morning, when the drug wore off, he realised what he did, and in his shock and horror, he developed a second psyche, that of a bitter man who tortures and mutilates his foes and capitalizes on fear. Now the current party of PCs have been tasked with finding his whereabouts.

I don't know what I want to do with him, but I'm sure that his psyches should have separate classes.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I also need help designing the herbal drug.

Actually, I'll make the second psyche take the true dragon monster class from Dreamscarred Press. Switching psyches will also change shape.
