Labrys Knight (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
The hardened warrior approaches the giant Ogre and winks. The Ogre firmly plants his feet in preparation for battle. As the Ogre swings his massive club, the warrior parries with his axe and in a swift movement sweeps underneath the club and slices through the Ogre's stomach. The warrior stands, wipes his brow, and watches as the Ogre's bust slides off it's lower torso falling to the ground.
A group of adventures charge into battle. In the front line, an aged warrior charges, taunting his opponents. He stops and surrounds himself with the most dangerous creatures in the battle. He glares at them and within moments the battle begins. The warrior is sliced and diced by many creatures, but this does not stop him. He pushes on and vanquishes his opponents. As he cleans his blood drenched eyes, he smirks and says, "Is that all you got".

The bonus must be announced before initiative is rolled, and must be used as the same modifier for the duration of the battle. You can use the bonus the following ways: add the bonus to initiative, to Attack rolls, or to your armor class. After a long rest your choice is reset.

At 18th level, you have learned to harness the power of thunder. You slam your axes to the ground creating a wave of thunderous force from you. Each creature in a 15-foot cube originating from you must make a Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, a creature takes 4d8 thunder damage and is pushed 10 feet away from you. On a successful save, the creature takes half as much damage and isn't pushed. In addition, unsecured objects that are completely within the area of effect are automatically pushed 10 feet away from you by the effect, and emits a thunderous boom audible out to 300 feet.
You may only use this once, being unable to use it again until you complete a long rest.
