Mindlords of the Last Sea -- What Would You Make'em?

I know that, overall, the Mindlords aren't an important topic here, and that's fine, but if people just want to spend a minute in contemplation, that's cool. What would you make the Mindlords. From what my memory retains, the Mindlords are beings who placed their psyches/souls into bigger Obsidian Spheres, and these shield them from death. When they need to interact with others, they just use juiced up versions of projections to keep the people believing that they are flesh and blood, and still around. So, how would someone, in 3E/3.5E write them up? They're not quite undead, nor constructs, and they appear as illusions, but nothing I can think of does stuff similar to that, except maybe demiliches who sit comfortably in their tomb, with astral projections and pyhlactery transference (making their items work) allowing them to appear before players, only to (ever so occasionally?) be defeated, and just poof away. What would folks do to make the Mindlords work like they do? I suppose being a 27-30th-level Psion, damn near anything is technically doable, and they are potentially even a match for a dragon, but I want people's opinions, please?

Some interesting stuff came from another thread regardining the Mind Lords.

Here's a link to it if you're interested:

Oh, there's a very nice mindlord template in Legends of Athas... :D

I've tended to consider them as psinic equivalents of Liches, actually. Or demiliches.

Something very similar to that...

Made a similar statement in the other thread about them being like demiliches ;)

I made them Unbodied from Expanded Psionics p215 with Psion class levels. Seemed to fit.

I had them as telepaths with the guardian template from TOA, except their mental abilities were not decreased.
