Psy's (NOT GANGNAM STYLE) main power would be the ability to mind control the enemy on the battlefield, giving them the current shield and health of PSY whilst doing double the damage and absorbing twice as much damage before the mind control wears off.
Talent trees would consist of various ways of keeping the minion/s alive and granting better buffs, sacrificing half the minions health and loss of control to bolster yours and the rest of the teams health regen and damage output, the last tree would consist of turning your minion into a walking bomb. Investing points into the multiple damage outputs (Acid/Fire/Electric/Slag etc) and the range slot would not only increase the damage output from when the minion explodes (also affects friendlies within the blast range), but also turn him quite literally into a walking nuke, capable of clearing out and infecting more and more enemies within the radius of his death.
Certain enemies would have a lower threshold to be mind dominated than others, depending on the overall area and enemies invested within. Some would require the user be a minimum level before they can use the enemy AI as a puppet/minion.
Because the 2 are interlinked, whatever damage the minion takes, Psy would be taking all to 1/4 of it at all times depending on how the skill points are invested.
Think Dr Zed meets a Ingame Psycho for the character look, has the mouth of deadpool crossed with rictofen from Cod Zombies. If i can sketch something up, i will add it into the post.

My character is an old angry drunk Scotsman with a ginger beard to his waist, he has an eyepatch over the right eye whilst having a robotic eye in the left, he has his left leg and right arm replaced by robotic prosphetics and his arm and function as a multitool, he has a natural rainbow afro with a green baret on top and duel weilds muskets while riding a self-made claptrap. He often cusses and slurs his words making it difficult for people to understand him. He owns a garage in the Highlands but he's commonly been found hunting the local wildlife.
He wouldn't be a player character but an ai who gives quest to the player. These quests often require the player to get him more booze or to find him spare parts for his claptrap. If all quests are completed, he will randomly join the player in missions providing support whilst upon his claptrap and then leaving the player saying he needs more booze and will not join the player again until he has recieved them. His favourite drink is Rakk ale and steals it from the Caravan that pass through The Dust.
He's good with machines and was once a mechanic working for Maliwan. He often drops by Sanctuary to meet a few people he's known in his life. He is Mordscai's drinking buddy and he always tries to hit on Lilith and Moxxi. Him and Scooter go way back and they often trade tips and secrets about the mechanic trade amonst otehr things. He knows Zed because he was the one who gave his mechanic replacements before he lost his medical degree and often visits to thank him for what he has done. Marcus tries to sell him other guns since he has had the muskets for a very long time but they have served him well and declines everytime.

Akira was one of the leading researches into the use and effects of the mysterious crystal known as Eridium for the Hyperion Corporation, he was particularly interested in how Siren’s were able to absorb Eridium to provide them with new abilities and a lot more power and strength behind their newly acquired and original abilities.
The Hyperion Corporation had little knowledge of this at the time and so Akira researched into this area secretly, he eventually discovered the secret behind this phenomenon; little to Akira’s knowledge the Hyperion Corporation had bugged Akira and knew that he had discovered something of great importance.
Before the Hyperion Corporation used this ability on it’s most powerful men and associates, they decided to experiment Akira’s method on him. He was kept for years at a time as the forced Akira to absorb the Eridium. Akira’s health diminished and his body started to crystalize in the form of an Eridium secondary substance. This lasted for another couple of months until his forearm and thumb were completely crystalized and his neck and face had begun to crystalize, the crystals on his arm began to glow with a eerily dull beating glow. Akira had gained what was to be known later as the power to Dreamleash.
Knowing that his health would get worse he used his new ability to escape from the Hyperion Corporation with not only his life but also all the data on his discovery into Eridium absorption. Akira fled to the other major corporations in search of help and a cure, but they all answered with the same response, they all required money and lots of it. Akira had little time to cure himself before the crystals would completely overtake his body, this forced him to become a Vault Hunter and set his sights on Pandora.
Akira is a relatively tall male coming in at 5ft 11inches, he has a thin build but this does not mean he is weak. He chooses to wear all black, trousers, tshirt and overcoat. His left forearm and thumb are completely crystalized and give off a pink/purple colour and glow. His hair is to his neck and is also black but with a slight purple colour behind it.
The pictures shown below give a general idea of what he will look like, the shoes suck, I can’t draw them properly:
Akira’s ability focuses around the power of the Dreamleash, hence him being recognized as a Dreamleasher. The Dreamleash power literally stands for Dream-Unleash, the dream can be referred to as a persons dream, desire, or even heart and soul.
The Dreamleash ability enables Akira to unleash a fellow vault hunters desire or even an enemy’s desire. These desires are materialized in a crystalized weapon in which Akira is able to use for a certain amount of time. The weapon that will be unleashed is dependent on the class Akira uses his ability on, these can be seen below:
Commando/Soldier: Assault Rifle
Enemies: Random - Dependent on what level they are, decides what weapon is unleashed
The weapon that is unleashed has a certain limit of use; this is shown by its ammo count and also a separate timer of 20-30 secondsas soon as the ammo runs out or the time runs out he can no longer use the weapon, with the weapon coming from a teammate (or enemy) it is actually a part of that person and so the person the weapon is taken from has their health reduced and capped at 80-90% of their regular health, also the weapon after it is fully used can either be discarded onto the floor (in which the weapon will turn to Eridium shards) or given back to the character the weapon was taken from. If it is discarded onto the floor the player the gun was taken from will take damage, if it is returned the player will get a minor health boost and if the player is down there is a minor chance that it will revive them upon returning the weapon. This could lead to Akira taking weapons from enemies to use against them and then discard to finish them off.
The weapon’s stats are dependent on not only the level of Akira but also the level of the player it is taken from. A high level player will give Akira a high level gun and vice versa.
At the beginning of Akira’s skill tree he will be unable to use his ability on all enemies, however through him leveling up and some well spend skill points he will be able to use it on nearly everything. The skill tree is mainly used to improve the damage of the guns taken, increase the ammo of the gun, decrease the amount of damage a teammate takes, increase the amount of damage a enemy takes, decrease the cool down between taking new guns, increase his own stats when using the gun and also increase teammates stats if a gun has been taken from them. Further down the tree Akira will be able to Dreamleash a gun from a teammate and give it to that teammate to use, essentially helping the whole team out through his ability, he will also be able to improve his own melee attack on first press of the melee button he will shoot Eridium shards into an enemy and deal significant damage (with there being a 5-10% chance the shards explode upon impact with an enemy) with the other melee button presses doing regular melee’s until it recharges. Later in the tree will lead to him being able to Dreamleash himself, this will provide him with an Eridium crystalized sword for him to use in battle for a certain amount of time, this sword increases his speed, shields, health, and melee damage. The sword can be seen below and is referred to as the ‘Soulreaper’:
I hope you like it, if you have any questions just ask there was far too much for me to write about him so I didn't get chance to write it all down. If the images don't work I'll try re-posting them.
