Well it requires a lot of work but you could do this by making the actual avatar unseen, and make your player character from sprites or tiles. It requires you to make a lot of rooms if you wanted to move a character around like you would a regular avatar. Since you would have to make a new room for every possible direction the character could move. This is currently the only way to change an avatars appearance that I can think of.

I hope you realize just how terrible an idea that is..

True. For your case it would be a lot of work. However I've seen as well as used this method for first person dungeon crawler/ choose your own adventure style games. Among other things.
