Infused Spellcaster - Exalted Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The infused are mortals the creatures of the Upper Planes deem worthy of being agents for good in a time of peril. Each infused's soul is bonded with a celestial who then lives inside her. As the chosen mortal performs good deeds, the bonded celestial grants the infused more of its powers. All those who are given this highest of honors receive a holy mark, an icon of glory that is a graphic representation of the blessings of the celestial and the divine powers it serves.
More often than not, the infused are chosen from the ranks of mortals who already revere good deities. Clerics and paladins of deities of justice, light, and love are therefore the most likely to become infused. These individuals already have positions of power in the hierarchies of good-aligned churches, and the powers granted by their bonded celestial are strong tools to motivate good in the world.
The infused prestige class presents two paths of advancement, one for the spellcaster and one for the combat-oriented character. A character who wishes to become an infused can choose from either prestige class path, but once a path is chosen, the character cannot then progress in the other. Both paths have the same class requirements, class skills, skill points per level, and abilities, but they differ in fighting prowess and spellcasting ability.
As the infused grows in power, the celestial bonded with his soul pushes him toward performing more and greater acts of good. To reward the infused for his good deeds, the celestial grants him more and greater powers based on the celestial's own powers.

To qualify to become an Infused Spellcaster, a character must fulfill all the following criteria:
- Alignment: A creature of any alignment may become infused, but an infused cannot advance in the class when possessing an evil alignment.
- Base Attack Bonus: +4 / Base Will Save: +2
- Special: The character must share her soul with the personality of a particular celestial. A character may only progress as an infused warrior or an infused spellcaster, she can not take levels in both classes. Once the character chooses a celestial to become infused with she is bonded to that creature for the rest of her life and may not later become infused with another celestial.
