Aura Warriors have existed long before written history was a thing. Legends have it that the first Lucario (the majority of aura warriors) was made due to an extremely high concentration of aura somewhere around the Sinnoh mountains, and that's why they tend to live around that spot. Other races can still be an aura warrior, but it takes even more intense focus and training than the natural-born aura users that Lucario are.
Intro to the Aura Warrior
You run on respect, trust, and honor. Justice is your calling, and you aren't afraid to lay down your life to save lives.
Aura warriors rely on their aura to do most of their work, so they don't usually specialize in weapons. Their power comes from the aura force, connected to the users' emotions and ideals. They want the greater good.
As an aura warrior, you can just imagine someone took a monk and made it a sorcerer, and added a barbarian into the mix. To use your aura, you don't use spell casting, but you use Aura Points (AP). To gain unique moves and abilities, you just simply level up.
Creating an Aura Warrior

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th, and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.
You are proficient in aura-related abilities and attacks. This bonus does not apply to items created with Aura Infusion.
You have aura points which can be used to perform certain abilities. The amount of aura points you have is listed in your class table. You start with 2 features that you can spend aura points on.
As an action, you can expend aura points to lift, move, or push objects. Spending a single AP moves a large or smaller object 10 feet. You can spend extra AP to increase the movement by 10 feet, spending up to 10 aura points. If you attempt to use this on a creature, they must succeed a Constitution saving throw of 8 + Charisma + Proficiency Bonus to escape. This check gets performed every 6 seconds (one round). You can spend up to an extra 5 AP to increase the saving throw by one for each extra point spent.
You can also spend 3 aura points to destroy a non magical object. You must first spend at least 3 AP to use this action, then succeed a Charisma check based on the size. You can spend up to 3 extra AP to lower the DC by one for each extra point spent.
Short Rest AP recovery
When you take a short rest, you regain a number of aura points equal to you Charisma modifier + 3 (minimum 3).
You recover all your aura points when you take a long rest.

If the target is holding a magic shield and they succeed the saving throw, they take no damage. This can be used with Detect Auras.

You can still see the auras of those around you even if you're blind. You can also see people that are invisible via the Invisibility spell. However, you cannot see anyone invisible via the Greater Invisibility spell.
