For this beastie, I'd say he's got the oomph in a straightforward brawl to merit CR20, but his defenses are lacking against anything that doesn't just come right up and try to melee him. His Perception is low enough that anyone with a decent stealth investment and a ranged weapon is going to give him trouble. He can't fly and his ranged options are fairly short. Perhaps most glaring of all is his abysmal +13 Will save. Non-mind-affecting Will-save spells are going to ruin his day, such as Plane Shift, Imprisonment, and Trap The Soul.

Perhaps he could do with a splash of Diamond Mind maneuvers? Hearing The Air and Moment of Perfect Mind would go a ways to shoring up his defenses. Of course, the more straightforward thing would just be to give him passively improved animal senses (he's sort of animaly, so its not unjustified) and a Will bonus. But martial disciplines are fancier.
Going to agree with Xefas on the defenses being lacking; I just wanted to clear up muddy subjects I saw was in what you had written up and didn't feel it was my place to mention he was kind of fragile.

Unfortunately, I don't know Path of War to know if there are similar Diamond Mind maneuvers. Regardless, I'd suggest against cluttering Ludwig up by requiring subsystem knowledge and just give him these kinds of abilities baked in.
