You've seen the great power of the mages and start fearing every magic user. With time this fear become an hatred, a great hatred towards mages and their kind. You start searching a way to make them feel as weak as you do in their presence. After a tons of research, a book come in your path, a book about an extinct sect, the ts'ere-jira. This book might be an hundred pages of pure gibberish, but with each day you slowly start to decipher the meaning and the secret of its page and with it come a dark power.
The power of the book
When you choose this archetype at 3rd level, the book begin to give you access to new power, you gain the ability to cast certain spell - much like a sorcerer. However, you do not own any spell slot. Your spell casting ability is your strength.

At 3rd level, your attacks and extra attacks steal a certain number of spell slots from your opponents, depending on your level. You lose these spell slots after a short or long rest. You deal an additional D4 of necrotic damage for every spell slots an opponent is unable to give you.
You always start by stealing the weakest spell slot from your opponent. e.g. Against an level 5th wizard, you'll steal is 4 (1st) spell slots first, than you start stealing is 3 (2nd) and etc.

This melee attack interrupt the spell before it is cast.
You may use this ability a number of time equal to your strength modifier, at a minimum of one, per day.
You may use the dash without the melee attack and the melee attack without the dash. The dash can allow you to dodge an zone spell, but cannot dodge a spell directly targeting you. The target of the melee attack must be the one casting the spell.

This ability can be use only once per short or long rest.
