Mutate Companion

Prerequisites: Alchemist 8, Lesser Animal Companion discovery.

Benefit: The alchemist’s animal companion can sometimes be used as a guinea pig for experiments with new potions, and begins to show signs of this in its physical form. The companion gains two evolution points as if it were a summoner's eidolon, and can gain evolutions from the eidolon's list. These points may not be used to increase the companion's ability scores. This discovery may be chosen multiple times, and each time the companion gains two more evolution points. Each time the alchemist gains a level, he may change the evolutions that his companion currently has. If the alchemist’s companion dies or is replaced in some other way, the new companion does not gain the benefits of this ability for one week after entering the alchemist’s service.
