Class Skills (2 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
All of the following are class features of the Harmonixer.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Simple and Martial Weapon Proficiency.
Fusion: The Harmonixer has a natural ability to change her body into those that they have acquired the soul of. This functions similarly to the druids Wild Shape. Fusion is however not restrained by size category. Fusion can only be used once per encounter and once combat ends the fusion automatically breaks. This lasts for 1 hour or until combat ends. Fusion can not be used outside of combat and is considered a Full round action. In order to use Fusion the Harmonixer must succeed a Concentration Dc check of 10 + the souls challenge rating. If failed then the Harmonixer still fuses into the monster, however they become beserked while doing so. Beserked Harmonixers are unable to tell the difference between friend and foe and must attack the closest living thing to them if possible. Beserking last for 2D4 rounds or until the Harmonixer is rendered unconscious. If the Harmonixer goes unconscious (even when not beserking) the Fusion breaks. Harmonixers are unable to use or learn any spells even if they multiclass into a class that can use spells. Harmonixers are also unable to summon any creatures even when fused to a creature that could normally summon.
- note- All the Creature souls are SRD and can be found there for stats.

Harmonixers in the Game
Harmonixers tend to be either by themselves or in a small party. They are not necessarily slow to trust others but are rather cautious when meeting new people. Most often they are not afraid to use the abilities that they possess but try to avoid using them in front of large amounts of bystanders.
Adaptation: A Harmonixer could fairly easily be adapted to change which souls they acquire to better suit a campaign.
Sample Encounter: Found sitting around a campfire resting after a long day of traveling. They approach the PCs as they are Suspicious of outsiders.
