Idea for the Paladin's Guardian, should I?

World’s End Tavern: Role-play and Fan Fiction
For those of you that know of the Unborn Val'kyr pet, it looks pretty Angelic and holy. So I got it, and instead of making it a Val'kyr(Since that would be impossible..) I decided to make it a familiar of sorts of Mal's. Though I've recently had an idea for it, and I want to know if it is a good idea or if I should just keep it a familiar. - Pretty much, The Guardian of Ancient Kings is a spell I have a story with on Mal. It's not just some holy spirit he summoned up, but an actual person he used to know. There was a whole Rp thing about it I did with some friends when he first learned to summon it. And I was looking at the Val'kyr and the Guardian, and they have some things that look decently the same. The helmet is close on both, and the wings look pretty close. Other than the obvious sex difference. So I was thinking, Malgrain had summoned a new Guardian, and instead of just disappearing it has the little form of the Val'kyr, and becomes the actual Guardian when powered up.(Aka, by Malgrain using the spell like always.) The new Guardian would look almost the same as the model Guardian, except female to fit the Val'kyr.

Good idea, or bad? Should I keep Mal's current Guardian and keep the Val'kyr pet as a Familiar, or do this idea? I personally like the idea, but I am very close to just dropping it because it sounds iffy to me.
I'm really not sure about this one. I don't find the thing to be as angelic and holy as some of the golden light pladinny things. But if that's what floats your boat.

I don't see the problem with having the guardian be in the form of the pet. I'd not personally rp such a situation, but I don't think there's anything glaringly wrong with it. Though some may think it's snowflakish, it depends where and with whom you play.

I'd personally be swapping to different pets/familiars regularly while my character appears to be talking to this supposed spirit that is his lost friend/colleague, his voice of reason/compassion/conscience no matter what critter is out, insisting it is that person. By doing this, I would be implying my character is just a little schizophrenic.
