Aasimars are one of the rarest races on Ord. Although their Angelic ancestor may be many generations removed, their presence still lingers. Aasimar are predisposed to Lawful and Good alignments, but they are by no means always such. Most high ranking angels are genderless and lesser devas rarely show romantic interest in other species unless commanded to do so.

Aasimars are mostly Human and therefore generally follow the conservative standards of their community.

Subraces

Protector

Protector aasimar are charged by the powers of good to guard the weak, to strike at evil wherever it arises and to stand vigilant against the darkness. From a young age, a protector aasimar receives advice and directives from a patron angel that urge it to stand against evil. Most frequently servants of Cerlendriel, these aasimar are generally the descendants of such angels. Pahlin Holt and his descendants are Protector aasimar.

Scourge

Ur 140109

The Jiéshù rì consider the mask they wear as their true face.

Scourge aasimar result from a ritualistic bond with celestial archons. The new dual-souled children are imbued with an unstable divine energy that blazes intensely within them. It feeds a powerful desire to destroy evil- a desire that is, at best, unflinching and, at its worst, all-consuming. Many scourge aasimar wear masks to block out the world and focus on containing this power, unmasking themselves only in battle. Scourge aasimar are found almost exclusively in Danasia among the Jiéshù rì cult.

Ability Score Increase. Your Constitution score increases by 1.

Radiant Consumption. Starting at 3rd level, you can use your action to unleash the divine energy within yourself, causing a searing light to radiate from you, pour out of your eyes and mouth, and threaten to char you.

Your transformation lasts for one minute or until you end it as a bonus action. During it, you shed bright light in a 10-foot radius and dim light for an additional 10 feet, and at the end of each of your turns, you and each creature within 10 feet of you take radiant damage equal to half your level (rounded up). In addition, once on each of your turns, you can deal extra radiant damage to one target when you deal damage to it with an attack or spell. The radiant damage equals your level.

Once you use this trait, you can't use it again until you finish a long rest.

Fallen

Fallen aasimar are commonly the offspring of one of the celestial followers of Ashmedai, similar to their Tiefling cousins. These aasimar rarely bother to differentiate between good and evil, living follow the will of Ashmedai. Fallen aasimar despise demons of all kinds and commonly act on the material or umbreal plane as spies, informants or emissaries of their diabolic patron. Alternatively, a fallen aasimar can form when a protector aasimar is touched by evil and rejects their divine patron.

Ability Score Increase. Your Strength score increases by 1.

Necrotic Shroud. Starting at 3rd level, you can use your action to unleash the divine energy within yourself, causing your eyes to turn into pools of darkness and two skeletal, ghostly, flightless wings to sprout from your back. The instant you transform, other creatures within 10 feet of you that can see you must each succeed on a charisma saving throw (DC 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier) or become frightened of you until the end of your next turn.

Your transformation lasts for 1 minute or until you end it as a bonus action. During it, once on each your your turns, you can deal extra necrotic damage to one target when you deal damage with an attack or a spell. The extra necrotic damage equals your level.

Once you use this trait, you can't use it again until you finish a long rest.
