Doom Slayer, 3rd Variant (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
The Doom Marine was originally a human from Earth who served in the Marines and was dishonourably discharged due to assaulting his commanding officer after refusing to fire upon a crowd of unarmed civilians, and was later transferred to the UAC Phobos base as security. The Marine soon found himself trying to prevent the demons of Hell from invading Earth. After having fought demonic hordes through Phobos, Deimos and Hell, he returned home to find Earth overrun by demons and his wife, child, and pet rabbit Daisy, among the billions of people killed, giving him further reason to pursue hunting the demons. He continued fighting the horde on Earth, before taking the fight to Hell once more.
The demons of Hell first gave him the appellation "Doom Slayer" and also refer to him as the Unchained Predator, the Beast, and the Hell walker. The UAC refers to the Doom Slayer as DOOM Marine, or The Slayer. Before the character had any epithets in the story, he was most commonly called Doom guy in the fan community. This nickname is mentioned in Doom Eternal and used in his dialogue subtitles. He is intended to be the latest iteration and continuation of the classic DOOM Marine who is the protagonist for most of the series. The original iteration of the DOOM Marine was the grandson of Commander Keen and the great-great-grandson of William J. Blazkowicz. Some fan-theories say the Doom Slayer's name could be William Joseph "B.J." Blazkowicz III but according to official interviews the developers clearly stated he has no name. The Doom Slayer's Blazkowicz ancestry may or may not be canonical for the modern iteration.

The Night Sentinels when they opened a portal invade Hell, rather than appearing as a unified force they were scattered, embattled from all sides by the legions of Hell with their way back barred even if they could reach it. All who took part in the ill-fated expedition perished save for one, the man they once called Outlander, who the demons would come to know as the Doom Slayer.
