Sin of Wrath, Variant (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
Embodiments of Wrath
A seemingly human man stands atop a hill, waiting as the horde of orcs charge him. One of their Shamans launches a Fireball, but the human simply strikes it with his blade and sends it careening back. Much to the dismay of the orcs, it seems even larger than when the shaman cast it in the first place.
A Sin of Wrath is a demon who, for one reason or the other, has left the Blood War to live on the Material Plane. They wield the power of dark, Abyssal flames and have a unique ability to counter spells fired at them. Some fight against their nature, trying to maintain a calm and composed demeanor, while others give in to their rage, burning all who dare offend them.
Most have little to no memory of their time in the Blood War, gaining more and more details as they continue on. This is a defence mechanism, as even if they give in to their anger, most Sins of Wrath left due to disillusionment in the cause and just want to leave their old life behind.
