An event in your past, or in the life of a parent or ancestor, left an indelible mark on you, infusing you with arcane magic. Your Hemomantic Origin has your spellcasting detailed apon selecting it.
At 1st level, you know 1 cantrip of your choice from the Hemomantic Origins spell list. You learn additional cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the gifted Warrior table.
- Spell Slots
The gifted Warrior table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your gifted Warrior spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these gifted Warrior spells, you must expend a slot of the spell’s level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest.
For example, if you know the 1st-level spell burning hands and have a 1st-level and a 2nd-level spell slot available, you can cast burning hands using either slot.
- Spells Known of 1st Level and Higher
You know two 1st-level spells of your choice from your Hemomantic Origin's. The Spells Known column of the gifted Warrior table shows when you learn more Hemomantic Origin spells of your choice.

Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the Hemomantic Origin's spells you know and replace it with another spell from the Hemomantic Origin's spell list, which also must be of a level for which you have spell slots.
Spellcasting Ability Your Hemomantic origin determines is your spellcasting ability for your spells. You use the ability that your subclass dictates, whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability.

Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Hemomantic Origin's ability
