I'm writing a story that was originally conceived as an anime/manga concept, and in the process of creating a character, I came up with this little bundle of destruction: A Misincarnated Salamander with an identity crisis. In the story, a Misincarnation is what happens when a non-human soul is placed into a human body. It's different from a possession, because the soul didn't take over the body, it is the original soul of the body, it's just not a human soul. In this case, she's a human with the soul of a salamander (Fire elemental). Misincarnations display the abilities of their soul's true form, which in this case means the character can control and is immune to fire. What I'm wondering is, has anyone else ever come up with something similar?
