Default New Infused Racial Templates

So, in DF 3: The Next Level we have the racial templates, between then we have the infused, people that are half elemental.
There we have the fire-infused, air-infused, earth-infused and water-infused.
But in DF 9: Summoners we have some new elementals: Wood elemental, Metal elemental and void/ether/sound elemental.
Then i thought, why not have a wood-infused, metal-infused and void/ether/sound infused. But i don't know exactly how to create then, suggestions?

Infused are 75 CP templates, so I would start with that, then I would go with a thematic template. For example:

Wood Infused [75]

Attribute Modifiers: ST+2 [20]; HT+2 [20]

Advantages: Appearance (Attractive) [4]; DR 2 (Tough Skin, -40%) [6]; Plant Empathy [5]; Regeneration (Regular; Environmental, Plants, -40%) [15]; Reputation (+3; Wood Elementals) [5]

Perks: Long Fingers [1]

Disadvantages: Unnatural Features [-1]

Features: Barklike skin.

Thank you, i am having a hard time to create the others two. But maybe i can steal stuff from the metal and void advantages or elementals

I'm seeing myself out.

If memory serves all the infused have an attribute bump, DR (often vs their own element), a positive rep with elementals of like type, then a trick or two related to their element.

For tricks:
Metal sounds a lot like earth with permeation and DR tricks. Claws?

Sound could have protected hearing and a sensory trick (parabolic hearing? sonar?)

Ether sounds like space/movement type powers. Force Surfing (Powers)?

Void is usually destruction and emptiness... Touch corrosive attack?

I think that void would instead have Insubstantiality (Mana Sensitive, -10%; Maximum Duration, 1 minute, -65%) [20].

All good suggestions. All of then are in fact in the elementalists advantages or in the elementals advantages

Authentic Asian void would be more like a mana elemental.

Mana elemental sounds interesting. The void side could be a Mana Damper ?

It can also be associated with power, creativity, spontaneity, and inventiveness.

Kū is of particular importance as the highest of the elements. In martial arts, particularly in fictional tales where the fighting discipline is blended with magic or the occult, one often invokes the power of the Void to connect to the quintessential creative energy of the world. A warrior properly attuned to the Void can sense their surroundings and act without using the mind, and without using their "physical senses".
Talent: Artisan ? It's a very broad talent, though. Perhaps higher IQ would just be better.

The second part sounds like a scanning sense or perhaps a reason to take vibratory sense.
