New Template: Psi-Hunter

If we're going to have a psionic template, and psions need to fear Anti-Psi characters, then we should have Anti-Psi characters.

The Psi-Hunter is a cross between the Bounty Hunter and the previous version of the Space Knight, but with a focus on Anti-Psi as their base of power.  A Psi-Hunter is skilled at protecting those in his charge or in finding, hunting down and killing a Psi.  He's not nearly as good as a pure Bounty Hunter or Body Guard, but he comes with the added advantage of 40 points of anti-psi power.  The result is a character who can afford to be completely immune to your psionic power, or who can shut down your psionic powers completely, or who can blast an area with his power.
