A new magazine scan for Tales of Xillia 2 shows exactly how Ludger's "other form" looks like - with its own official art.
As a refresher, patient Ludger has an ability roughly translated as his Corpse Shell Ability where, using the pocket watches we've been seeing in the trailers as a key of sorts, he's able to enter these parallel worlds once he's in that form. Clanspia Company's president Bisley wants him to use that power to destroy things called "Time Factors" in those worlds - destroying them in the process. This ability is apparently something that runs in the Kresnik family.
