Who am I? I am the cleansing light that will purge and purify the world. I’m going to start with you.”

Prerequisite: Avenger

Few are blessed with the strength of a lightborn, many avengers eventually adopt their faith and thus this is where they gain their link with the divine. Yet lightborns are different, in some way, they’ve been favored by their God, even before birth, chosen to be a champion before they even were within existence of the material plane. As a lightborn, your soul burns with a limitless energy, touched by the hand of your God. You were not taught anything about the esoteric lore of your faith and you are not associated with any hierarchies associated with it. Your passion is greater than the regular faithful and you see no despair or uncertainty in your unwavering faith. You believe that all your experiences before the touch of your God was a way to test your resolve and spirit and thus you are grateful for everything.
