Autopsy: victim's lungs completely imploded.

comment Can the heal spell (and other positive energy effects) work on constructs?
D&D 3.5 had rules for this sort of thing in the Eberron Campaign Setting, but I'm not sure if Pathfinder did it any differently.

comment Can I throw my hands to spite my enemies?
Most I could think of is ripping off your own arm and beating someone to death with it/throwing it at them. Still begs the question of you you get it off, but you kind of need to keep at least one hand in order to throw one.

In hindsight I think I can give all characters a reason for the antagonists to be interested in them, it's just this one in particular I wanted to keep secret from the character in question and use to kick off rather sudden introductions to a few GOI's.

comment Does a dragon's alternate form get class levels?
Oh I kind of had something like that already in mind- basically upgrading the dragon's ability to Charm his exarchs at will to dominating them at will- "Assuming direct control" and all that. It is kind of weird thinking I get to just make up rules like that, but part of me still wants to stay within the rules to some degree. You know, actually stat out that over-leveled and over-powered Exarch they're fleeing from so there's a reason he's no-selling most everything they throw at him beyond "because the story demands it".

Where/how does a dragon get True Domination? I've never heard of that before. Mind you if it's just a spell then it wouldn't work because Xorvinthall dragons lose all spellcasting ability in exchange for the ability to create Exarchs and a bunch of other powers they can get as they progress in their games.

I suppose DM fiat might be the answer here, but while I had considered something like the "Alternate Self" thing you mentioned, I am now also considering just retconning some of these dragon's human forms into their Exarchs. Might do a bit of both, actually; of all the regularly occurring dragon NPCs I had in mind, the red one would probably be the least likely to be met in human form, so making that Hexblade just be an Alternate Self would likely be a waste of a concept.

Not exactly- that question is how to build a PC that is functionally a dragon; I'm just wondering what exactly a true dragon is capable of if it takes humanoid form.
