Oath of the Blood Moon (5e Subclass)
From D&D Wiki
Oath of the Blood Moon
Paladins of the Blood Moon are a brutal force to be dealt with. They appear when someone or something must be slaughtered, and others don't have enough power to deal with a target. It might be a wicked witch or a mighty dragon, for them it matters not. They need prey. They hunt it down, and eventually kill it or get killed. Though don't be fooled that they underestimate their enemies. They will take time to prepare, for there is no use of a fool, who goes on a dragon hunt alone or unarmed. They do this for different reasons. Some want to protect innocents, others desire glorious battles with powerful entities. Also, they are not restricted by any sources of their divine power, only by dogmas. You can talk with your DM about how your paladin got their magic. For example they could belong to some god, but they can do it through sheer will too.
