 Making a Cursed child of Trigon
Advancing your mind
As the child of Trigon fights to control her emotions, it becomes easier. Eventually, your mind becomes like steel, enabling you to master emotion completely, as well as shutting out the will of your father.
Abilities: This child's focus is inwards, seeking to expand her mind to allow for great power, as well as freedom from emotion. Intelligence is her greatest ally.
Races: You must be a Child of Trigon which fights his influence to take this class.
Prerequisite This class cannot be taken at first level, as it takes some practice with controlling emotions to master it. This class can be taken at 2nd level or above.

 Class Features
All of the following are class features of the Cursed children of Trigon.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Cursed children gain no proficiencies in either armor or weapons.
Powers Known When a new Cursed child of Trigon level is attained, the character gains additional power points per day and access to new powers as if she had also gained a level in any one manifesting class she belonged to previously. She does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of either class would have gained (bonus metamagic, metapsionic, or item creation feats, psicrystal special abilities, and so on). This essentially means that she adds the level of Cursed child of Trigon to the level of whatever other manifesting class the character has, then determines power points per day, powers known, and manifester level accordingly.
Mental Mastery (Ex): After extensive meditation, the Child is able to understand the depths of her intelligent mind. She is able to control her emotions, and reject the mental presence of her father. At first level, the Will save to stay above Trigon's influence is reduced to a DC 15. The child also gains +5 to saves verses mind affecting spells or powers. At second level, the Will save is reduced to DC 10. The child also gains +5 to saves verses mind affecting spells or powers. At third level, her mind is stronger than any around her. She is now immune to Trigon's influence, no longer needing any checks to avoid his will. The child gains resistance 5 to mind affecting attacks (She ignores the first 5 points of damage). In addition, her control over emotions is complete, and she is immune to panic. At this stage, Trigon considers her too much work to deal with, and ceases to try to control her. She cannot embrace her father at this stage, and so she cannot gain Trigon's blessing.
Levitation (Ex): Using her extreme focus, she can levitate her body. She can float up to 3 feet off of the ground, and can move up to 5 feet in any direction but up.
Superior Levitation (Ex): Using her extreme focus, she can levitate her body. She can float up to 5 feet off of the ground, and can move up to 20 feet in any direction with good maneuverability.
Perfect Flight (Ex): Using her extreme focus, she can levitate her body. She gains fly 60ft with perfect maneuverability.
 Ex-Cursed child of Trigon
If at any time before the third level of this paragon class the child decides to embrace Trigon, she immediately loses all levels in this class, and cannot take it again unless she once again begins to fight Trigon's influence. If she takes it in this way, she does so with a -1 level penalty, as she forgot how to control the emotions which Trigon wants running wild.
 Campaign Information
 Playing a Cursed child of Trigon
Religion: Children of Trgion rarely worship deities, as they are literal children of a god.
Other Classes: Members of this class, what few there are, are often seen as cold and distant, as they keep a tight reign on all emotion. Some will look to a Cursed child for advice and guidance, others will look upon them with suspicion. This class looks at most others equally, from a purely logical perspective. However, Cursed children will often have a disdain towards sorcerers, viewing sorcery as a personification of their father's powers.
Combat: A Cursed child of Trigon will often avoid combat where possible, only engaging when it is necessary. They find little reason to fight for others, and will often join combat only to test and refine their power. When they do fight, however, they bring a terrible amount of power and devastation, utilizing psionic abilities in the most effective ways possible.
Advancement: A Cursed Child will continue to advance their psionic powers, with whatever class they deem to be useful to them.
