Discipline: psychometabolism; Level: Cryptic 4, egoist 4
Manifesting Time: 1 round
Display: olfactory, visual
Target: Willing living creature touched
Duration: 1 hr./lvl. (D)
Saving Throw: None (harmless); Power Resistance: No (harmless)
You meld into the touched creature, psionically fusing with their form. At the time of manifesting, it is decided if you or the creature touched are the host and the other is the passenger. While fused, the passenger is dormant and unaware. Any other effects that were on the passenger do not affect the host, and vice versa, while the power is in effect. The passenger does not need to eat, drink, or sleep, has no concept of time, and is not aware of surroundings or anything that occurs to the host. The host can discharge the passenger as a standard action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity. If the host is killed or the power ends, the passenger is immediately discharged adjacent to the host (or the host’s last location for effects such as disintegration). You cannot be under the effect of hidden body and fusion at the same time.
Augment: This power can be augmented in one of the following ways.
1. If you spend 4 additional power points, the passenger is aware of everything the host is aware of, although the passenger can still take no actions while fused.
2. If you spend 8 additional power points, the passenger is aware of everything the host is aware of and can take purely mental actions such as manifesting powers, although the passenger is restricted to the senses of the host unless using some other means of senses. The power’s duration changes to 1 round/lvl. (D).
