Stolen Fury (Campaign)
You were forced to take part in a demonic ritual as a youth after having been captured by cultists. Whatever the ritual’s purpose may have been, it didn’t work out the way your captors envisioned—rather than corrupting your soul, you absorbed the ritual’s energy and made it your own before you escaped to safety. Ever since, you’ve been haunted by strange nightmares about the ritual, and have long felt that the energies it bathed you in have changed you. Recently, those energies have changed— it’s as if you’ve finally managed to come to terms with your past and have turned the ritual’s aftereffects to your advantage, following the old adage of what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. You’ve been unable to learn more about the ritual or what it was for, but the question lingers in the back of your head to this day. This nagging has instilled in you a fury against demonkind. Today, when you face demons in combat, those energies bolster your fury, granting you a +2 trait bonus on all combat maneuver checks against demons. Associated Mythic Path: Champion. Multiple Characters: You and any other PC who takes this trait were all part of the same ritual, and it was only by working together that you managed to escape—further, the support of your fellow ritual survivors has played a key role in your coming to terms with it, and you retain a close bond of friendship (or perhaps a friendly rivalry) to this day.

Contagious Mettle (Social)
Benefits: If you follow this code, you gain a +1 trait bonus on Will saves against fear. In addition, any allies adjacent to you receive a +1 morale bonus on Will saves against fear..

A Shining Beacon(Religion)
You carry a burning hatred in your heart for all things demonic, and have studied their weaknesses carefully.
Benefit(s) You deal an amount of additional damage equal to your weapon's critical hit modifier when you score a successful critical hit with a weapon against a demon. This damage is added only after the damage is totaled, and is not multiplied by the critical hit multiplier.

Demon Smiter (Combat)
You grew up around those who fight the demons, and from their stories you learned about the demons' weaknesses. You likely have joined that nation's cause as a crusader.
Benefit(s): Once per day when fighting demons, you gain a +4 trait bonus on a single attack roll.

Smite Evil (Su): Once per day, a paladin can call out to
the powers of good to aid her in her struggle against evil.
As a swift action, the paladin chooses one target within
sight to smite. If this target is evil, the paladin adds her
Charisma bonus (if any) to her attack rolls and adds her
paladin level to all damage rolls made against the target
of her smite. If the target of smite evil is an outsider with
the evil subtype, an evil-aligned dragon, or an undead
creature, the bonus to damage increases to 2 points of
damage per level the paladin possesses. Regardless of the
target, smite evil attacks automatically bypass any DR the
creature might possess.
In addition, while smite evil is in effect, the paladin
gains a deflection bonus equal to her Charisma modifier
(if any) to her AC against attacks made by the target of the
smite. If the paladin targets a creature that is not evil, the
smite is wasted with no effect.
The smite evil effect remains until the target of the
smite is dead or the next time the paladin rests and regains
her uses of this ability. At 4th level, and at every three levels
thereafter, the paladin may smite evil one additional time
per day, as indicated on Table 3–11, to a maximum of seven
times per day at 19th level.

Power of Faith (Su)
At 4th level, a warrior of the holy light learns to use the power of her faith to bolster her defenses and aid her allies. This class feature replaces the paladin’s spells class feature. A warrior of the holy light does not gain any spells or spellcasting abilities, does not have a caster level, and cannot use spell trigger or spell completion magic items.
At 4th level, the warrior of the holy light gains one additional use of her lay on hands ability per day. She gains one additional use of lay on hands per day for every four levels she attains beyond 4th. She can spend a use of her lay on hands ability to call upon the power of her faith as a standard action. This causes a nimbus of light to emanate from the warrior of the holy light in a 30-foot radius. All allies in this area (including the warrior of the holy light) receive a +1 morale bonus to AC and on attack rolls, damage rolls, and saving throws against fear as long as they remain in the area of light. This power lasts for 1 minute.


Born to a much respected priestess of Sarenrae months after her Paladin father fell in battle, Darya was raised in Kenebres, surrounded by the ongoing intensity of the battle against the Worldwound.

Raised by her mother, whose meteoric rise within the church was exceeded only by her wisdom, she was grounded in the realities of good and evil from an early age. Unfortunately, this morality was accompanied by an intense capacity for wrath, an emotion easily invoked by injustice or unfairness. When at the age of 8 she brutally beat 3 older boys who were tormenting a half-orc girl, the decision was made to train her for combat in the hopes of giving her an outlet for her rages.

As she grew into a young woman, the strategy seemed to work. Most of the time she was a delight to be around, the darling of the crusade, albeit one that none of the younger trainees relished sparring with. Yet for those close to her, her teachers and weapons masters, there was always a tinge of awe mixed with fear at the sheer unrelenting capacity for violence she could bring to bear, sometimes getting carried away when sparring, especially after being hit.

She struggled with her emotions, believing herself a failure in her lack of holding to Sarenrae’s virtues of compassion and peace. Feeling the need to come to terms with her perceived shortcomings, the young warrior took a leave, taking a sojourn of self searching that would change her life.

In her travels she would at one point come to spend time at a roadside tavern where she encountered a beautiful green haired elven woman named Jerribeth who struck her fancy. The two talked and laughed well into the night until Darya's head began to spin, perhaps from too much drink, and everything faded to black.

As fate would have it, Jerribeth was a worker of dark forces who, upon immediately recognizing Darya's heaven-touched nature, found her a perfect candidate for some dark ritual.

Drugged and in a haze, Darya remembers little of the ritual, save a few other of the intended victims, who possessed an inner rage much like her own, kindred spirits. In some strange manner, their joint fury was able to somehow twist the ritual, stealing the dark power conjured for their own allowing them to break free and fight their way to escape in the ensuing chaos. They made a pact to remain friends, encountering each other numerous times since then, coming to each other's aid when needed.

It was on that night, free and away from the cultists that Darya knelt to give thanks to Sarenrae and felt a different presence. One that was intense and magnificent, a roaring furnace of holy power yearning for the opportunity to destroy evil wherever it lay. In that moment Darya found her purpose, taking up the banner of Ragathiel, his fire and fury filling her soul.



Darya is stunning to say the least. Taller and more powerfully built than most women, she frame is lined with sleek muscle from years of training with weapons, her skin surprisingly without a single blemish or scar, practically impossible for a warrior. Her flaming red hair fans out like fire around her a sharp contrast to her skin that while tanned, carries a slightly golden tinge as well as if she were constantly in the light of the setting sun.

Those who would have the opportunity so see her undressed would see the tattoo taking up the majority of her back, six skillfully done wings, spanning from her shoulder-blades to the small of her back, five of them a blazing red, while the upper left is black.

Protection of the innocent

Code of Conduct:

Ragathiel's Code of Conduct

Followers of Ragathiel are forthright in their intentions and desires, which is to vanquish evil whenever it shows its face. They fight until their last breathe and strive to protect all that would be tainted by evil. Ragathiel is often referred to as the General of Vengence, and as such many of his followers find themselves in leadership roles. Their tenets follow:

I will strike hard and fast against all evil that shows itself to me.

I will do all in my power to root out evil where it may hide. I will however not assume evil exists, and not strike down a creature until its evil has been proven without a doubt.

I am always striving to control myself in the face of temptation and baser urges. When desires well up within myself that do not honor Ragathiel, I will battle with myself to ensure I remain strong.

Without honorable allies, evil will prevail. I am always willing to accept those who wish to follow me into the fight against evil, even if they appear to be unlikely allies.

In the most desperate of times, I will accept help from those who are not honorable when the result will allow a far greater evil to be vanquished. Once my goal has been accomplished, I will then disavow any allegiance to the creature.

I will know the tools with which I battle evil. Every latch on my armor, every notch in my sword, and the weight of my boots; they are my family, my body, my soul.
