Oath of the Beast (5e Subclass)
From D&D Wiki
Oath of the Beast
Oath of Devotion
The Oath of the Beast is an old and ancient sect of paladin dedicated to protecting animals, making sure that they have equal rights. Paladins bound to this oath are often referred as wild wardens. This is a somewhat rare oath, because as the growth of civilization went on, people cared more about advancing rather than preserving wildlife. The majority of paladins who follow this oath worship god or goddesses of nature.
