Giant Maw 
Descriptors: Chaotic
Classes: Demonsouled, Totemist
Chakra: Blast, Throat, Totem
Saving Throw: Reflex

Your lower jaw becomes prominent and two large tusks grow from the lower line of teeth.

You gain a natural weapon in the form of a bite attack. It is a primary weapon and it deals 1d8 + Strength modifier.

Essentia: For every point of essentia you invest in this soulmeld you gain a +2 bonus on grapple checks you make with the bite attack.  

Chakra Bind (Blast)

As some demons often ride them, you summon a phantasmal mount in the form of a mivilorn.

Once per day you may replicate the spell mount, using your meldshaper level as caster level. Per each point invested in this soulmeld you may summon another mount, for others to use. These mounts look like grey, transparent mivilorns, and they cannot attack or be targeted nor suffer damage from any hazardous terrain. This does not prevent the rider from taking fall damage, nor the mount may shield anyone from harm, if not on the ground. It may be dispelled. A rider may make Ride checks untrained with this mount and you gain a bonus on Ride checks equal to the amount of essentia invested in this soulmeld.

By level 10th you may replicate the spell phantom steed instead. It looks as above stated, and its duration is determined by the amount of essentia invested (one hour + one extra hour per point). It has double the hit points a phantom steed would have. Your meldshaper level is your caster level for any other purposes.

If you have the ability to bind this soulmeld to the throat or totem chakra, while having this soulmeld also bound to this chakra, you may treat your mount (only yours) as having all the benefits given by this soulmeld and chakra binds instead of you. This allows the mount to use those abilities, using all of your modifiers (except for Strength, that is equal to that of a heavy warhorse + the amount of essentia invested), but also to be targeted by others (treat it as a heavy warhorse, except for the any statistics given by the phantom steed spell, if you use that version). This option doesn't let you bind other soulmelds to these chakras, as it is still shaped on you and bound on your chakras. 

Chakra Bind (Throat)

Your saliva becomes of a greenish color and slighty acidic.

You gain a breath weapon. As a standard action you may spew a 15-foot cone (4,5 meters) that deals 1d4 + 1d4 per every essentia point you have invested in this soulmeld. You may use this breath weapon one time per Constitution modifier per day. Targets may make a Reflex save to halve the damage (DC is 10 + essentia point invested + your Constitution modifier).

You also gain the scent ability and the Improved Grapple feat for your bite attack. 

Chakra Bind (Totem)

Your jaws expand, becoming enormous, and the skin and muscles of your neck let your mouth open unnaturally wide.

Your bite attack improves to deal 1d10 + Strength. You may now swallow an enemy you successfully grapple with your bite. It may not be larger than yourself. It stays half in your mouth, half out.

Each round it must do a grapple check to evade you. If it fails it suffers your bite damage and 1d4 of acid damage per essentia point invested in this soulmeld.

Your bite attack counts as chaotic-aligned for the purpose of damage reduction.
