Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: This background is far more powerful than other comparable backgrounds due to the sheer number of proficiencies/languages you gain.

Feature: Raw unbound power[edit]

You were a being of pure power, but you somehow lost it and you're now empty of what made you a God. You're naturally attracted to what could grant you some of your former power (that being a magical object, a temple, a magic-filled place or something else you can decide with your D.M.) The attraction you feel is so strong that everyone can see it and they're more likely to let you fulfill your desire.

Alternate Feature: Pure divine Frenesy[edit]

Your mere presence intimidates everyone around you, even your party. When they first meet you everyone has a feeling that something wrong is happening, that something or someone unnatural is there judging them. They'll do everything in their power to end their interaction with you, even if that means giving you a discount or (in some cases) fight you or giving their life to you.
