Maybe something like that:
You are a vengefull spirit/ghost, one of the races (all of them, charr, sylvari, human, norn, asura, all?). As a living being you were killed by the dragon's power (like when they were flying aroud the world or something like their poison spread around~).
You can either have some dragon-like powers by mutating your body/soul with the dragon power creating either a body-like dragon-something or just a soul corupted by evil power.
As a ghost-soul
you will have low hp but high damage reduction (its hard to kill something that's already killed and dont have a body, right?), you would be able to summon other spirits (kind of rytualist/summoner) to fight per side you for a short time (chained souls attacking at distance or mobile ones fighting in melee combat). Something like that.
As a body-possesing
half-dead mutated with dragons power (wont look like lizard, more like of a zombie) with high hp, half-tanker able to breath fire or erozion or something, melee and mid range warrior like class with a bit of madness.
Story line about:
-your memories as a living being (getting back in your memorys, fighting as a living being, your family, life, dreams, stuff -all being destroyed by dragons :) ) -that would be cool.
-current state, trying to take revenge on dragon, revange yourself or your family, fight to free your tormented soul from the chains of dragon's poison to be able to at least rest in peace. -that would also work just fine as a motivation and reasoning for a character)
Or other story line:
-chained from the times of Shiro
-Souls/body already tormented by Shiro's powers, those affected by his life and death
-Profession available only for Canthans (or by all profession but starting in Cantha)
-Storyline of their life with Shiro, later fall in sleep by Shiro's death in peace and new one awakened with dragons power.
As a ghost freely moving in downed state but will low speed.
One or two profession (two profession this body-like and soul-like or two variants of one profession either with body or just soul)
Kind of immortal, you died but you are still on this world, you wish to die but you cant before dragons are defeated.
That would be kind of original, or at least interesting.
That also kinda hitting lore. Many charrs, norsns, humans, asruas, all kind of living creatures suffers many victims in fight with destroyers, great destroyer (who was a pawn of dragons~) and after that during the awakening of dragons. Many of those who died must have hated their fate and cursed dragons. But they'd rather rest in peace instead of wandering around the world as half-deads but dragons curse would make them like that :)
What do you think?
