Weapon (ōdachi), legendary (requires attunement by creature who fights for a noble cause (talk to your DM as to what counts as a "noble cause"))

Ōdachi of the Dawn Lion is an exotic ōdachi made from pure crystals that deals an additional 2d8 lightning damage. While attuned to this sword you gain +2 Charisma.

Empowering Defeat. When killing a creature with this weapon you gain +1 Strength; this bonus can stack to a total equal to your proficiency bonus. The effects last for 1 in-game hour after the last creature you defeat; upon which the bonus is reset to +0. This effectively allows the user to maintain this bonus so long as he/she kills another creature within an hour of the last.

Lightning Strike. The wielder can use their action to expend a charge and fire a bolt of lightning from this sword at a creature within 60 feet dealing 3d8 + your Charisma modifier lightning damage on a ranged spell attack that uses your Charisma. The sword has a maximum of 5 charges and regains 1d4 + 1 charges at dawn.

Curse of Fate. Upon suffering damage, if you current HP drops to less-than or equal to 5 HP, you are filled with the strong desire to commit seppuku. You must make a Constitution saving throw at a DC of at-least 14; failure results in a death that cannot be undone by anything short of a wish spell. Upon succeeding the Constitution saving throw, the urge is dispelled until the next time either your health is depleted to 5 HP, or you draw this sword with less-than or equal to 5 HP.

Unyielding Morals. While using Ōdachi of the Dawn Lion, if the wielder attempts to strike any whom the wielder considers family or friends the wielded must make a Wisdom saving throw at a DC of 20. Upon failing the user will suffer half the damage he/she inflicts on the family/friend(s). However, if the wielder is successful, the wielder only has disadvantage on attack rolls and Charisma checks against your family or friends for 1 hour in-game.

Sentience. The Ōdachi of the Dawn Lion is a sentient neutral good weapon with an Intelligence of 14 (+2), a Wisdom of 11 (+0), and a Charisma of 18 (+4). It has hearing and darkvision to a range of 60 feet.

The Ōdachi of the Dawn Lion can speak, read and understand Common, Elvish, and Undercommon. It speaks telepathically with its wielder.
Personality. The Ōdachi of the Dawn Lion possess the soul of a former crowned prince who was forced to committed seppuku in order to protect his loved ones; it is friendly to its wielder but can be stoic at times. It often offers compliments or words of encouragement, and has been known to give advice when in political situations. "You're improving." "Excellent form." "With my help, we will be unstoppable!" If you commit an unhonorable act or do not do good within 3 days, you will have an argument with this weapon at dawn.
