Ascended (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
“Ascending is a 50/50 chance of going through the worst thing in your entire life with almost no end goal, or being acknowledged and thanked for your loyalty.”
An Ascended is a person chosen by one of the gods to becomes the god's representative either by going through a trial for the right to receive their divine blood, or chosen to receive the god's divine blood due to a lifetime of loyalty to said god or their teachings. For example, Tyr, the god of justice may choose for someone to become their representative due to a lifetime as an officer protecting the peace. There aren't many Ascended people living in the world due to the stress that the divine blood puts on the body. Many people die while going through the process of merging blood with a god but if you do, you will be given great power.
There's not much of a description as to what Ascended people look like. Their races differ, from being chosen Goliaths to being chosen Halflings. The only thing that is different physically from their old self is an ascended’s eyes turn pure white.
Ascended never interact with other ascended people due to the lack of them and due to the fact that the gods can only have one representative at a time.

Male: Sun Wukong, Ares, Hephaestus, Heracles
Female: Athena, Artemis, Venus, Amaterasu
