The minotaurs are known to be beasts of pure evil and primal rage, being manifested by demonic rites. Naturally one would think these monsters irredeemable, but every so often one or more minotaurs reject their demonic creator disgusted at what they've become. These souls are known as the dhaal and take the fight for good specifically against their evil kin.
Caging the Beast. Dhaal are everything minotaurs are not: they despise those who defy the natural order of things, such as demonic ritual, and actively protect those who are ravaged by their malicious brethren. Above all else, the dhaal seek redemption; redemption for all the evil deeds they did as minotaurs, redemption for those who they killed, redemption for the loved ones they blatantly abandoned. To do these, they must summon celestial entity to hear their plea and take them on as their warrior. This normally goes very poorly, as minotaurs are not well liked among celestials. However should the prayer be heard and accepted, they will mold them into a new being; their head and horns form to those of a water buffalo and they gain new power and a new title; kshatriya.
Noble Kshatriya. The dhaal take their new name and title to wear as badges of pride. With their new found powers, they do furious battle against the children of the Horned King. They despise the minotaurs and everything they stand for; death and chaos. The hunt down their former brothers and sisters, some even their own parents, with no mercy, no sympathy, no regrets. This is their life; they may procreate and spread each other's progeny as minotaurs do, but above all else, they must fight. That is their one purpose in life, to fight evil and never look back.
