The flavour behind the character
Arix is native to a plane in which dragons are intelligent and sapient, living in social groups called clans, in which each individual has their own role - hunting for food, scouting territory, nurturing young, and so own. Arix's role in his clan was to defend it from rivals, a role he trained and practiced in for practically his entire life, and he did it well. Until a day came when the clan was ambushed out of seemingly nowhere. While the scouts hurried the rest of the clan to safety, Arix fought of the attackers, drawing their attention to him as best they could. These were unlike any other he had seen, however - relentless, seemingly endless, more coming in for every one felled. After seemingly an eternity fending them off, Arix had finally reached the limits of his endurance, and he fell. As he saw what he knew to be the killing blow fly towards him, he could only hope that he had bought his clan enough time to get to safety...

...and, in a flash of light, found himself somewhere else entirely.

1. Power level? I'm aiming for the "pushed but fair" range.
2. Does the flavour come through?
3. Much as I like the ultimate of the planeswalker side, is it too awkward that the "-10" is kind of secretly a "-11"?

Not sure what flavour you want to convey, since that blurb could be summarized as "he's a dragon who was a guard". The abilities aren't really un-guardlike, if that's what you were thinking of.

When you activate the ultimate, you need to have at least one loyalty counter left. Otherwise, Arix goes to the graveyard because he's still a planeswalker without any loyalty counters. -10 is fine.

That's what I meant by it kind of secretly being a -11.
