Vivimancers (also known as fleshcrafters) are mages who study the arcane manipulation of biological life. They typically evince the qualities of cold, scientific inquiry and ruthless dedication; seeking, through their studies and experiments, to dominate the processes of life, twisting them to their own ends.
From Theorems & Thaumaturgy:
The Vivimancer takes inspiration from the opening story of The Dying Earth by Jack Vance. There we meet Turjan of Mir as he struggles to master the forgotten principles of life that will enable him to produce intelligent beings from his vats.
The ACKS class is built on my Specialist Mage chassis, with my favourite Vivimancer spell choices available as signature spells. In my campaign, Ophidians and Hyperboreans are the true masters of vivimancy, with human Vivimancers understanding only a fraction of the Ancient secrets.

Because of its extreme weirdness, the Vivimancer is really intended as more of an NPC class. Also, I would need to tweak some of the spells in play to reflect ACKS rules.
