Blood Angel (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
You are neither an emissary of Heaven, or a monster of Hell, but an uncanny mix between the two. Most blood angels are born through the unholy union of a tiefling and a fallen angel.
A blood angel is exactly what it sounds like: an angel with blood-red or crimson wings. Some blood angels are known to have red skin and horns.

- The First Blood Angel
No one knows who gave birth to the first blood angel, but all remember his appearance. During a war between two neighboring countries, an angel-like being with blood red skin and wings and long black hair appeared and slaughtered all who attempted to fight him. Following the battle he disappeared, however, both sides of the fight agreed that he was a blood angel, less due to his skin and wing color, and more due to the bloodshed created by the fearsome existence.
Blood angels are known to appear during wars and are heavily recognized as a sign that a battle is about to be won. Throughout history blood, angels tend to either decimate the enemy forces or appear last minute in a losing battle and heal all those injured.
Blood angels are a rarity, so no specific society of blood angels exists, however they are known to join countries they believe in as warriors and medics.
