With this power, a shaper can twist raw ectoplasm into roughly humanoid shapes, imbue them with limited psionic power, and animate them for a limited time to do battle on their behalf. Although always considered a level 5 power, the power point cost of this power, as well as the size and potency of the construct created, varies depending on the class (Psion) level of the manifester. At levels 9, 11, 13, 15, and 17 the improved astral construct increases in its durability, psionic abilities, and competence in battle.
