Your paragraphs are too long so I skim past the first sentence apparently.   :P

Class Features
Text
  • Spellcasting: The Forgesouled Guardian increases his spellcasting level as if the character had gained a level in the class used to enter Forgesouled Guardian at each indicated level.
  • Construct Companion (Ex): You gain the service of a Construct companion. Choose any single construct, with a CR equal to your level -3 or lower. Advance any construct that is lower until its CR is your level -3. You can command your companion as a swift action to take a specific act, but by default the construct will attack any hostile creature within 30 ft. of the Forgesouled Guardian. At each class level beyond the first, the construct advances by two hit dice. A Forgesouled Guardian can repair his construct companions, restoring them to vitality, through the application of his crafting talent. For every minute he spends repairing a construct, it regains 5 hit points. This cannot increase a construct companion's hitpoint total above its normal amount. If the golem is ever lost, you can craft a replacement costing 500gp per hitdice, taking one day for every two hit dice.
  • Construct Lore (Ex): At 2nd level, you gain uncanny knowledge about all types of Constructs, including their behavior, abilities, and weaknesses. You can make a special Construct lore check to identify Constructs or their special abilities or vulnerabilities. The check functions as a Knowledge check (PH 78), except the Construct lore check can identify any Construct. You gain a bonus on this check equal to your Forgesouled Guardian level + your Int modifier. You can attempt this check in addition to making the relevant Knowledge check to learn about a creature.
  • Bonus Feat: At 2nd level, and each even level after that, the Forgesouled Guardian gains a bonus feat, chosen from the list of Warforged feats.
  • Construct Flank (Ex): At 3rd level, you learn to better coordinate your attacks with your Construct companion. When you form a flank with a companion, both you and the creature gain an additional +2 bonus on attack rolls and damage rolls against the flanked opponent.
  • Extra Construct Companion (Ex): At 5th level, you gain a second Construct companion. At 10th level, you gain a third Construct companion.
  • Construct Tactics (Ex): Starting at 7th level, you and your Construct companions make an excellent team. Through coordination and practice, you have learned to optimize your combined efforts. When one of your Construct companions strikes an opponent with a melee attack, the target provokes an attack of opportunity from you. With this ability, you can make an attack of opportunity against a particular target once per round.
    In addition, your companions do not grant cover against your enemies when you use ranged attacks or spells.
  • Construct Team-Up (Ex): When you reach 9th level, all the members of your adventuring party (including your other construct companions) now gain the benefits of your Construct Flank and Construct Tactics abilities. Any references to "you" in those abilities now include your allies.
Forgesouled
Prerequisites: Dwarven race, 1st level only
Benefit: You become a living construct, as per the warforged subtype. You are now eligible to take all warforged feats, and for the purposes of race, you count as both a dwarf and a living construct. As part of taking this feat, you choose a single warforged feat that must be taken at 1st level. You gain this feat.

P.S. The feat can easily be changed to be not dwarven only, it was just where the original idea came from.

Class Features
Text
  • Spellcasting: The Twilight Walker increases all casting features as if the character had gained a level in the appropriate class at each indicated level.
  • Bonus Feats: The Twilight Walker, at every odd level, gains a bonus feat, chosen from all [Nightlight] and [Daylight] feats. He must still meet the prerequisites of the feat chosen.
  • Shadow Servant (Su): At 1st level, you gain a Medium shadow elemental as your shadow servant (see the Shadow Servant below). Should your shadow servant die, you can summon a replacement after 24 hours pass. Your shadow servant cannot travel farther from you than 30 feet + 10 feet for each of your Twilight Walker levels (40 feet at 1st level and a maximum of 130 feet at 10th level). If it is forcibly separated from you by more than this distance, the servant dissipates instantly, and you must wait 24 hours to summon a new one.
  • Master’s Bidding (Su): At 1st level, as a standard action, you can focus your affinity with shadow to enhance your shadow servant, granting it one special ability for 1 round. The special abilities available to your shadow servant are described in the Shadow Servant sidebar, and depend on your class level. For example, at 4th level you could give your servant any of the following special abilities: interact with corporeal, fast healing, extra attack, or cold damage +1d8. At 5th level, you can grant your shadow servant a special ability for 1 round by taking only a move action rather than a standard action. You can choose to use two move actions in the same turn to grant it two abilities. Additional move actions granted by spells, class features, or the like can also be used to further enhance your shadow servant. At 10th level, you can grant your shadow servant a special ability for 1 round by taking only a swift action rather than a move action. You can still use move actions to give it additional abilities. Thus, a 10th-level Twilight Walker who does nothing else in a round can choose to give his shadow servant three special abilities (using one swift action and two move actions). This also applies to the Sun Servant.
  • Elemental Resistance (Ex): At 2nd level, the shadow and the light in your essence provides cold and fire resistance 5. This resistance increases to 10 at 4th level and 15 at 6th level.
  • Sun Servant (Su): At 2nd level, you gain a Medium fire elemental as your Sun Servant (see the Sun Servant below). Should your Sun Servant die, you can summon a replacement after 24 hours pass. Your Sun Servant cannot travel farther from you than 30 feet + 10 feet for each of your Twilight Walker levels (40 feet at 1st level and a maximum of 130 feet at 10th level). If it is forcibly separated from you by more than this distance, the servant dissipates instantly, and you must wait 24 hours to summon a new one.
  • Dawntreader (Su): Sunlight blazes from your body, pouring over the area around you in roiling waves of light. A 10 ft per class level emanation bathes the area, and every enemy within it must save against a DC of 10 + class level + charisma modifier or be blinded for 1 round per class level. This can be activated or suppressed as a standard action, and counts as bright light for the purposes of the [Daylight] feats.
  • Nightwalker (Su): Darkness spills forth, a black mass that fills the area with a dark cloud. A 10 ft per class level fog (treat as solid fog) surrounds the Twilight Walker. Any creature entering the fog is, one round later, attacked by its shadow twin. Treat this as an illusory, shadowy version of the creature that is only 20% real. If the target creature leaves the fog, the twin disappears. The Twilight Walker and any ally with him is immune to all the fogs effects. The fog counts as darkness for the purposes of the [Nightlight] feats.
  • Threshold (Su): During the hours of dawn and twilight, the Twilight Walker can slide into the spaces between light and dark. He may shadow walk at will during these hours. Whenever he appears from or disappers into the shadow walk, a sunburst spell is created, centred on his location. He and any ally shadow walking with him is immune to its effects. The caster level for these spells is his character level.
  • Eventide Wayfarer (Su): At 10th level, double all numerical benefits from [Nightlight] and [Daylight] feats.
Shadow Servant
A Twilight Walker’s servant is an unquestionably loyal, devoted companion. As the master increases in power, the shadow servant also becomes tougher, gaining Hit Dice and special abilities. A Twilight Walker can focus his power and will upon a servant and make it do his bidding.

10th    +9         —         Immunity to cold     —

Shadow Servant Basics: Use the base statistics for a Medium shadow elemental as given on page 165 of the Tome of Magic, but make the following changes.
Level: The character’s Twilight Walker level.
Bonus HD: Extra eight-sided (d8) Hit Dice, each of which gains a Constitution modifier, as normal. Remember that extra Hit Dice improve the shadow servant’s base attack and base save bonuses as appropriate for an elemental. A shadow servant’s base attack bonus is the same as that of a cleric or druid of a level equal to the elemental’s HD. A shadow servant has good Reflex saves (treat it as a character whose level equals the elemental’s HD). A shadow servant gains additional skill points and feats for bonus HD as normal for advancing a monster’s Hit Dice (MM 290–291).
Dex Adj: Add this value to the shadow servant’s Dexterity score.
Resistance to Cold (Ex): A shadow servant of a 2nd-level Twilight Walker gains resistance to cold 5. At 4th level this increases to 10, and when the master reaches 6th level, the resistance increases to 20.
Size Increase (Ex): A 3rd-level Twilight Walker’s servant grows to Large size. At 9th level, it increases again to Huge.
Deliver Touch Spells (Su): If its master is 5th level or higher, a shadow servant can deliver touch spells for him. If the master and the servant are in contact at the time the master casts a touch spell, he can designate his servant as the “toucher.” The servant can then deliver the touch spell just as the master could. As usual, if the master casts another spell before the touch is delivered, the designated spell dissipates.
Immunity to Cold (Ex): The servant of a 10th-level Twilight Walker has immunity to cold.

Master's Bidding
A Twilight Walker can shape the essence of his shadow servant, granting it special abilities and qualities. In this way, the master customizes his servant to his needs of the moment. At first, enhancing a servant in this manner is a standard action, but higher-level masters eventually reduce the effort to a move action and finally a swift action. Even when a Twilight Walker has the ability to bid his servant to gain multiple abilities, any single ability can only be gained once.
Interact with Corporeal (Su): When you grant your shadow servant this bidding, it can perform simple tasks at your command, in a manner identical to the unseen servant spell, except that it retains its own hit points.
Fast Healing (Su): A shadow servant can be bid to regain hit points at a rate of 1 hit point per class level per round.
Extra Attack (Su): When making a full attack action, a shadow servant can be bid to make one extra attack. The attack is made using the creature’s full base attack bonus, plus any modifiers appropriate to the situation.
Cold Damage (Su): A Twilight Walker can bid its servant to deal an additional 1d8 points of cold damage on a successful hit (stacked with the cold damage that shadow elementals normally deal).
Reach (Su): A shadow servant bid to extend its shadowy arms in this manner increases its reach by 5 feet.
Damage Reduction (Su): Bidding your shadow servant to ignore damage grants it DR 5/–.
Speed (Su): A Twilight Walker can bid its servant to be quick, increasing the servant’s speed by 20 feet.

Sun Servant
A Twilight Walker’s servant is an unquestionably loyal, devoted companion. As the master increases in power, the Sun Servant also becomes tougher, gaining Hit Dice and special abilities. A Twilight Walker can focus his power and will upon a servant and make it do his bidding.

A Sun Servant has good Reflex saves (treat it as a character whose level equals the elemental’s HD). A Sun Servant gains additional skill points and feats for bonus HD as normal for advancing a monster’s Hit Dice (MM 290–291).
Dex Adj: Add this value to the Sun Servant’s Dexterity score.
Tongue of Fire (Su): The sun servant gains a fiery breath weapon that deals 3d6 points of damage in a 20-foot line. Those within the area of the tongue of fire take half damage if they succeed on a Reflex saving throw (DC 10 + 1/2 hit dice + Con modifier). At 4th level, the tongue of fire deals 5d6 points of damage, and at 6th level the tongue of fire deals 8d6 points of damage.
Size Increase (Ex): A 3rd-level Twilight Walker’s servant grows to Large size. At 9th level, it increases again to Huge.
Deliver Touch Spells (Su): If its master is 5th level or higher, a Sun Servant can deliver touch spells for him. If the master and the servant are in contact at the time the master casts a touch spell, he can designate his servant as the “toucher.” The servant can then deliver the touch spell just as the master could. As usual, if the master casts another spell before the touch is delivered, the designated spell dissipates.
Heat Death (Su): A sun servant can take a full attack action to raise the internal temperature of one living creature within 30 feet to lethal levels. The target must succeed on a Fortitude saving throw (DC 14 + sun servant's Cha modifier) or die horrifically as its blood (or other internal fluid) boils. Even on a successful save, the target takes 4d8 points of fire damage from the heat.

Reach (Su): A Sun Servant bid to extend its sunlit arms in this manner increases its reach by 5 feet.
Damage Reduction (Su): Bidding your Sun Servant to ignore damage grants it DR 5/–.
Speed (Su): A Twilight Walker can bid its servant to be quick, increasing the servant’s speed by 20 feet.
