Racial traits:

Darkvision: Aasimar can see perfectly in the dark for up to 60 feet.
Celestial Resistance: Aasimar have acid resistance, cold resistance 5, and electricity resistance 5.
Crusading Magic: These aasimars gain a +2 racial bonus on caster level checks to overcome spell resistance and on Knowledge (planes) checks. This racial trait replaces the skilled and spell-like ability racial traits.
Scion of Humanity: Some aasimars’ heavenly ancestry is extremely distant. An aasimar with this racial trait counts as an outsider (native) and a humanoid (human) for any effect related to race, including feat prerequisites and spells that affect humanoids. She can pass for human without using the Disguise skill. This racial trait replaces the Celestial language and alters the native subtype.
FCB: Add +1 psychic spell known 1 lower level.

Class Features:

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Arcanists/psychic are proficient with all simple weapons. They are not proficient with any type of armor or shield.

Arcane Reservoir (Su): The arcanist’s arcane reservoir can hold a maximum amount of magical energy equal to 3 + the arcanist’s level. Each day, when preparing spells, the arcanist’s arcane reservoir fills with raw magical energy, gaining a number of points equal to 3 + 1/2 her arcanist level. Any points she had from the previous day are lost. She can also regain these points through the consume spells class feature and some arcanist exploits. The arcane reservoir can never hold more points than the maximum amount noted above; points gained in excess of this total are lost.

Points from the arcanist reservoir are used to fuel many of the arcanist’s powers. In addition, the arcanist can expend 1 point from her arcane reservoir as a free action whenever she casts an arcanist spell. If she does, she can choose to increase the caster level by 1 or increase the spell’s DC by 1. She can expend no more than 1 point from her reservoir on a given spell in this way.

Phrenic Pool (Su): The maximum number of points in a psychic’s phrenic pool is equal to 1/2 her psychic level + her Wisdom or Charisma modifier, as determined by her psychic discipline. The phrenic pool is replenished each morning after 8 hours of rest or meditation; these hours don’t need to be consecutive. The psychic might be able to recharge points in her phrenic pool in additional circumstances dictated by her psychic discipline. Points gained in excess of the pool’s maximum are lost.

Psychic Discipline: Rebirth
Past-Life Memories (Ex): You add a bonus equal to half your psychic level (minimum 1) to all Knowledge checks and can attempt all Knowledge skill checks untrained.

Mnemonic Esoterica (Ex): Select a single additional spellcasting class. Once per day when you prepare your spells, you can add one spell from this class’s spell list to your spells known and class spell list for 24 hours. This spell must be 1 level lower than the highest-level spell you can cast, and you cast it as if it were psychic magic (Pathfinder RPG Occult Adventures 144). You can decide to change the spellcasting class from which you draw this spell each time you gain a new level.

Phrenic Amplifications
Overpowering Mind (Ex): The psychic can spend 2 points from her phrenic pool to increase the Will save DC of the linked spell by 1. At 8th level, she can choose to instead spend 4 points to increase the DC by 2. At 15th level, she can choose to instead spend 6 points to increase the DC by 3. This amplification can be linked only to spells that have the mind-affecting descriptor and require a Will saving throw.

Bloodline Arcana (Psychic): Your arcanist spells and spell-like abilities count as psychic instead of arcane. You use thought and emotion components instead of verbal and somatic components when casting your spells.

Bloodline Power (Psychic):
Psychic Strike(Su): At 1st level, you can overwhelm the minds of those nearby. You can target one creature within 30 feet that you can see; that creature must succeed at a Will saving throw (DC = 10 + 1/2 your arcanist level + your Charisma modifier) or it takes 1d6 points of damage + 1 point for every 2 arcanist levels you possess and becomes shaken for 1 round. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier.

Feats and Traits:
Logical Spell: A logical spell can be cast without emotion components. Spells that don’t require emotion components are not affected. A logical spell uses up a spell slot 1 level higher than the spell’s actual level.

Driven by Guilt: You awake after your ordeal with a lingering feeling that you have taken part in something outside the normal bounds of your morals. Whether you were corrupted at one point or compelled to perform some forgotten actions, this guilt drives you to fight against those forces in the world that prey upon the good. You see your present condition as a chance to redeem yourself and banish this unsettling emotion.

You gain a +1 trait bonus on saving throws against any spells or spell-like abilities cast by evil creatures. In addition, once per day as a swift action, you can add your Charisma bonus to your attack rolls and deal 1 additional point of damage for each class level you have against evil creatures for 1 round. You must have a good alignment to take this trait.

Magical Lineage (Remove Fear): When you apply metamagic feats to this spell that add at least 1 level to the spell, treat its actual level as 1 lower for determining the spell’s final adjusted level.

Wayang Spellhunter (Battering Blast): When you use this spell with a metamagic feat, it uses up a spell slot one level lower than it normally would.

The GM in Yellow 20 Questions:

1. Guilty/Remorse, though at the start of the campaign she can't remember why
2. Those who know her but aren't friendly - Unease as nothing is hidden from her.
Those she calls friends - calm/relaxed as they know she will do what she can to help them
3. Kioku needs companionship most. She can sense the thoughts of others making relationships difficult. Therefore having people she can count on is important to her
4. Her goal, even if she doesn't know it is to forgive herself. The guilt and remorse she feels drives her
5. She feels she can accomplish her goal by helping people as much as she. It is her belief that this will clear her conscience and wipe the books clean of her guilt.

6. Kioku was born in Tien. She lived a simple life as the daughter of a craftsman. Kioku was ostrasized as a young child as she constantly heard voices which scared her. Unknown to her at the time, these voices were the thoughts of those around her. (Possible plot hook, maybe one of these voices wasn't some one elses thoughts but that of an "Elder god").
7. Kioku was forced to grow up fast due to her gifts. She and a young boy quickly became friends and together they helped train her psychic abilities, including building a wall to block out the thoughts of others. Her parents may have cared for her physical needs, but she was forced to take care of her emotional needs
8. Values Kioku holds sacred: Honesty, Loyalty, Kindness to others. Growing up with the ability to read thoughts and emotions of others, Kioku has found she values honesty above all as she knows when she is being lied to. In this sense it annoys her as now she needs to know why. Along the same vein, she values loyalty as betrayal is just another form of dishonesty.
9. Kioku dresses casually in flowy clothes that emphasize comfort. Her hair is worn loose and flows to the small of her back.
10. Kioku doesn't have a lot of means. After her accident, she fled Tien with not much but the clothes on her backand has been doing odds and ends just to get by. She is good at using her gifts as a means to calm people

11. Kioku enjoys twilight. The color of the skies after the sun dips below the horizon, the smell of the fresh night air and the coolness on her skin, and most of all the quietness of everything at that time.
12. Without knowing too much of the campaign it is difficult to have opionions on aspects of local society. In general, her values would drive her opinions on things.
13. I think this question is better answered as what is her anti-comfort zone. Kioku despises chaos and noise. While she is better at keeping thoughts out chaos and noise can make it more difficult to focus which further drives up they chaos in her mind in an endless feedback loop
14. A young boy (I can provide a name or you can) and love interest in the town she grew up in had the most impact on her life. They grew close and fell in love. Kioku accidentally permanently maimed or killed him with an errant psychic blast during a fit of anger.
15. I'm not a fan of this question as I feel quirks emerge dynamically as the character is played.

16. I believe the character belongs in Strange Aeons. I think her psychic nature thematically fits in well with the story. Further, I feel the trauma of her past and the guilt and remorse it causes plays well with the themes as well
17. Kioku is a support/damage dealer. I plan to play the Psychic half of her as a support character and possibly party face while the arcanist aspect will be focused on damage dealing via force spells such as Magic Missile and Battering Blast. Area control may also happen via typical mage spells. Her build starts with her just focusing on knowledge arcana, but I feel as she levels she will put other points where needed.
18. I also feel this is a difficult question to answer without knowing the rest of the party. There may be ways to tie things together with someone else selected. Kioku is looking for companionship and friendship so she will do what she can to help others.
19. I think I'll answer by answering each subquestion. In PbP I tend to prefer character immersion as I think the interparty relationships add a lot. I definitely prefer colorful descriptions. My posts are almost always from the point of view of the character with action being described third person. I typically include lots of inner thoughts.
20. Kioku would prefer to die of old age, with someone she cared deeply about with her. However, as a player I could see the heroic sacrifice while protecting someone she cared for to be a fitting end.

The GM in Yellow Fluff:

Kioku appears as a lithe Human. Her Aasimar ancestory is recessed. She is fairly tall, standing at 5'9". Kioku has fair skin and her eyes are sky blue. Her hair is worn long and loose and is a deep black, almost as if it is absorbing the light around it. Kioku's garb tends to be loose and flowy. Image

As a child, Kioku was extremely shy. She kept hearing voices which she didn't understand were the thoughts of those around her. As she aged and learned to build a wall in her mind against the voices, Kioku began to grow into her own. She developed a very outgoing personality. She was inquisitive and extremely friendly. After the accident, Kioku turned inward and closed herself off, afraid that she might hurt someone again.

Who was Kioku
Kioku came into being as a young child. Growing up as a child she consistently heard voices of the thoughts of those around her. She learned to build a psychic wall to shield herself from these thoughts. Shortly after this, Kioku confided in a young boy she liked that she had certain gifts. The boy pushed her to train and hone her skills while she herself was hesitant. However, she relented and they would work together to refine her psychic gifts. During this time, the two of them fell in love. One day, however, a fit of anger crossed Kioku and she lost control of her powers and unleashed a psychic blast permanently maiming/killing her love. In despair and guilt she fled Tien looking to start over.

About Me:
Time Zone: Eastern

How many Games: So, if you look at my profile you will see 3 active games. However, if you look further, you will see it is only one active game. The first game is a Wrath of the Righteous game. I think there was a 9-10 person party in that game. I quickly found that I don't enjoy games that have that large of a party. As such I dropped from the game, fairly early. The second game is an Iron Gods game. The game recently started but the GM is has been largely gone and we haven't even done the first encounter yet. While the game is technically active, I would not be surprised if the game is shut down soon. The final game is a Hell's Rebels game and it is currently active.
