At 1st level, you are trained in hand to hand combat.
- You can use Dexterity instead of Strength for the attack and damage rolls of your unarmed strikes and weapons you are proficient with.
- Your unarmed attacks deal 1d4 damage, the die increases at 6th, 11th, and 16th levels.
Choose one from below - This starts at first level and you can not have more than one, unless you work something out with your DM.
Brace for Attack - Always on your guard, you gain a bonus of +1 to AC, only works while conscious.
Light Weapon Handling - While wielding a one handed weapon, you get +2 to hit, does not work with Duel Wielding.
Double the Damage - While Dual Wielding each time you roll a 19 or 20 you may make an extra attack with your off-hand weapon, once per turn.
Dragon Slayer - While fighting any monster when dual wielding, you can add your ability modifier to the second attack.
Demon Blood - Having demonic heritage you are granted the following benefits:
• You have Darkvision if your race did not have Darkvision, up to 60ft.
• You gain resistance to necrotic and fire damage but attacks with radiant damage or posses holy properties have advantage to hit you.
• Your base speed becomes 40ft.
Mark of The Dragon - You have the mark of a Dragon, as seen in The Seven Deadly Sins, somewhere on your body. Anywhere is fine as long as it's reasonably visible. Come up with an event where your character let loose their wrath and would be branded as such. They could still be on the run or absolved of the crime, your choice.
Cursed - You have been cursed by the Demon King and do not age and if you die your soul return to your body. However, when you would make a death saving throw you only have one instead of three. If you succeed the death saving throw you are considered stabilized and unconscious. If you fail the death saving throw you can't be revived by magical or non magical means except for this feature. When you die your soul returns to your body 1d4 hours later at which point you must make a con save throw DC17 and if failed your alignment must shifts towards chaotic evil, the amount of shift is based on you and your DM.
Age - I would say at least 100 but that's just me, minimum age is probably 25 because before you start the campaign you have already been branded with the mark and have been cursed, but whatever age floats your boat.
Lost Power - Part of your power was sealed off from you and is contained until you reach a state of controlled wrath or otherwise mental maturity that time will be controlled by the DM.
Demonic Regen - You can use your demon blood to your advantage by using your bonus action to regen hp the amount of times equal to your constitution modifier and regens by completing a short rest. You regain an amount of hp equal to what says in the table + your constitution modifier.
Starting at 2nd level While you are not wearing any armor, your Armor Class equals 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Constitution modifier. You can use a shield and still gain this benefit.
− At second level you gain the ability to use Full Counter level 1 which for your character means you can reflect an attack directed at you, back to the attacker. You may choose to be able to reflect magical attacks or melee attacks.
To reflect a magical attack it must be visible. You can not reflect attacks that incur effects or change the environment. Reflected spells incur the same effects as if they were casted on the intended target to the caster themselves.
Physical attacks may be reflected in any way including projectiles yet the damage returned does not include effects from attacks that incur bonus status ailments, i.e. you can not inflict bleeding or poison on a returned attack if the attack would have given you those effects otherwise.
Full counter will return the decided damage and adds an extra 2d10.
At Full Counter level 2 will return the decided damage and adds an extra 4d10.
At Full Counter level 3 will return the decided damage and adds an extra 8d10.
This can be Can used a number of times equal to half your level per long rest. When you roll for full counter you still have to succeed the targets ac to hit. Resistances or immunities are still accounted for.
Starting at 3rd level, you can throw aside all concern for defense to attack with fierce desperation. When you make your first attack on your turn, you can decide to attack recklessly. Doing so gives you advantage on melee weapon attack rolls using Strength during this turn, but the attack rolls against you have advantage until your next turn.
Beginning at 5th level you can attack twice instead of once,whenever you take The Attack action on your turn.
At level 10 gain another extra attack, At level 15 gain another extra attack, At level 20 gain another extra attack
When you or someone in your party falls below half, or when someone you have a bond with, is knocked unconscious by enemy means you can activate this ability, regardless of whose turn it is. You cast your emotions aside and give in to your inner power at the cost of possibly losing control to your Demonic blood. When you rage you can't cast full counter or any other magic and you must make every attempt to destroy any threat that would seek to harm your allies. This ability is counted as a bonus action if on your turn and uses your reaction if on another's turn, and you must have a clear line of sight on the attacker.
At the end of each of your turns when raging you must make a con save starting at DC 5 and increasing by 2 every turn. To stop Demonic rage all enemies must be dead, not just unconscious. If you fail the con save your demon blood temporarily takes over and you must attack everyone around you as if they are your enemy. You also gain +1 to AC per level of Demonic Rage. (Manifestations are considered natural weapons, and you add your Strength modifier. Ax can not be combined with extra attack, Claws can)
At level 1 you gain +2 to attack and damage rolls. As dark energy surrounds your body. You gain the ability to manifest your demonic blood as giant claws that bypass resistance to necrotic damage and deal 1d8 slashing and 1d6 necrotic.
At level 2 you gain +3 to attack and damage rolls. you also gain the ability to manifest your demonic blood as a giant ax on your character's dominant hand that can sweep enemies in front of them, this counts instead of an attack roll this considered a 15ft cone dex save DC15, if save half damage. Does 1d10 slashing and inflicts 1d6 bleeding. The claws now do 2d8 slashing and 1d6 necrotic. Switching between weapons counts as a bonus action.
At Level 3 you gain +4 to attack and damage rolls and enemies must make an intimidation check at disadvantage as your form shifts and your aura grows darker and dark purple wings appear on your back that have a flying speed of 40 ft. Claws now do 3d8 slashing and 2d6 necrotic while the ax does 2d10 slashing and 2d6 bleeding damage, Dex save DC16.
As you tap into your demonic ancestry you are now able to access Hell Blaze, this allows you to, as a bonus action, engulf your weapon with a purple flame that stops all enemy regeneration and deals 1d6 necrotic damage and remains on your weapon for 1d4 + con modifier rounds of combat. Can cast once per long rest.
At level 2 you are now able to engulf your weapon as well as another weapon of your choosing, provided you are within 15ft of the weapon, and it now deals 2d6 necrotic damage and on a successful attack target must make a con save to not be set on fire, DC 8 + con + proficiency. Targets on fire take 1d6 fire damage for 1d6 rounds of combat.However, only the Hell Blaze on your weapon stays for the 1d4 + con, the other weapon only lasts until the next successful attack. Can cast twice per long rest.
At Hell Blaze Mastery you are now able to engulf three weapons when you cast this as a bonus action, additionally Hell Blaze on your weapons now deal 3d6 necrotic but the other two weapons still deal 2d6 necrotic damage and only last until the next successful attack. Can cast three times per long rest.
Sacred Treasure Lostvayne
Sacred Treasure Lostvayne is a +3 weapon which deals 1d10 damage. As you hunger for power your demonic blood can now sense a powerful artifact lost to the ages, one that suits your magic extremely well. Its special ability is called Physical Clone and using your bonus action, you can create up to 6 clones of yourself that have each have 1 hit points and temporary hit points equal to your level. These clones will last for 10 rounds. These clones are also equipped with the same equipment as you including this weapon, but these will disappear if the clone dies or despawns. If you create one clone, this clone has stats equal to 75% of yours rounded down. If you create 2 clones, these clones have stats equal to 50% of yours rounded down. If you create 3 or more, the stats equal 35% of yours rounded down. Each clone will take its turn after yours in the order they were created and you control what they do on their turns. These clones cannot create more clones.
As you hunger for power grows stronger you have the drive to seek out and reclaim your power. Once you find your power you must make a Constitution saving throw DC 17, if successful you can choose to take back your power or reject it. If you choose to reclaim the power and make the save you are restored with no consequences, but if failed you must shift alignment to Lawful-Evil or Chaotic Neutral as the demon blood overwhelms you. You can now max two stats of your choosing to 25 and get an immediate bonus of +1 to the two you chose, also your lowest stats become 12.
Power Rejection- However, if you succeed on the con save you can decide to destroy your power. However, you can choose to reject the old wrathful power and fight the manifestation of it, CR determined by DM, you alone must fight it without using any demonic power and no one else can interfere.
