Psion paragon path for a good alligned telepath?

the whole theme for the character is based around an unassuming character more often than not just leaning on the end of his staff looking around the battle field, the monsters seem to be confused as to why this man is just standing in the heat of battle when all of the sudden they get a searing headache unlike anything they've ever felt

so heres the problem, ive been careful to choose attacks that have absolutely no physical effects on the target, also limiting my utilities (no psychic shield for me) but its getting to the point in the campaign where its time to start thinking paragon

the character is the main diplomat in a roleplay focused campaign, and it seems the only paragon path for telepaths that have no physical or visual effects is the thrallherder, you know, except for the enslaved humanoid following you around

so it makes a little less sense for the good aligned diplomat to be constantly tailed by a brainless slave

any suggestions on what to do? 
If you stick with Thrallherd, you could reflavour the thrall as an animal (which could be genuinely loyal rather than mind-controlled), a golem (or similar mindless construct) controlled by thoughts, or even an extension of the psion's own mind given physical form.

Alternatively, multiclass to get a better selection of paragon paths. The bard's Life Singer paragon path would work very well both mechanically and concept/fluff-wise for your character.
"There's an old saying that all it takes for evil to triumph is that good people do nothing. I've always had a problem with that. If you do nothing to oppose evil, then how are you 'good'? To turn aside and allow evil to flourish is to collaborate with it. You ask for mercy. You claim you have done nothing. That 'nothing' is why you deserve no mercy." - Lorian Karthfaerr, drow paladin of Avandra Robin Laws says I'm a Storyteller:

You're more inclined toward the role playing side of the equation and less interested in numbers or experience points. You're quick to compromise if you can help move the story forward, and get bored when the game slows down for a long planning session. You want to play out a story that moves like it's orchestrated by a skilled novelist or film director.

actually after a few hours of thinking i came to that exact conclusion, since my character is oriental im gonna go with a tiger or a panda thrall(companion)
