Sky Heir (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
|Work In Progress|
An Sky Heir is a creature that has been chosen by the stars to represent them, it is for this reason that the chosen ones are usually royalty, or have positions that give them visibility from the beginning. On rare occasions, an heir has been chosen who has gained renown from the shadows. The heir has the obligation to fulfill his kingdom and also, correspond to the expectations of the stars, which, to a greater or lesser extent, represents a burden for anyone who is not a prodigy. In any case, the heirs develop great power through rigorous training that enhances both their royal technique and their affinity with heavenly power. The latter is engraved on his body from the day he is chosen, this element is given the name of Celestial Mark and is what gives the heir a connection with the sky.
Delving into the Celestial Mark, it appears anywhere on the body, usually on the chest, shoulder or leg, although on other rarer occasions it appears on the face, neck or palm of the hand. Mention that at first, those unfortunate heirs who received their mark on their back were secretly despised, as it was considered to be a symbol of weakness. The shape of the mark usually represents a constellation. and regarding the size, it may vary. If the mark is covered by hair, the hair becomes light blue, red or black where the mark is.
Born to be Chosen
Despite the above explanation of how heirs are chosen, I confess that I have not been entirely fair, although it is true that they are usually royalty, the way in which an individual is chosen varies according to each star. The Mother Star selects a creature related to royalty that was already destined to live a relevant time from before being born, The Fallen Star on the other hand, cannot choose an heir, the creature is the one that initiates the connection looking for it or without want. The Red Star is guided by instinct, and usually only wants to satisfy his curiosity and finally, the Blue Star chooses the one who has a guiding role in his story and she decides if his cause is worthy of the support of he.
The Weight of Expectations
Despite the power and recognition, some of the heirs give up their duties, leaving the training, or simply their efforts are not enough, there are even those who have come to perish by not knowing when to stop.
Creating a Sky Heir
First it is important to ask yourself, what star has chosen me? Have I contacted her first? My life has developed in peace and tranquility or am I royalty, will I be a prince perhaps? Where is my heavenly mark? Its location could have caused me problems, there are those who envy the chosen ones.
