Slaved tank (3.5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
Note: this is a variant of tank
Slaved since childhood, the Slave was tortured everyday of his meaningless life. Pain was present every waking moment, and eventually he grown accustomed to it. His slave master were surprised by his Indomitable Will, they decided to use him for their nefarious reasons.
They decided to hone his defenses since his Will allowed him to adapt, giving him heightened natural defenses.
Eventually though the Slave broke free. With his newfound freedom the Slave trains everyday until he once again runs into his former masters just to laugh in there face at their attempt to hurt him, only to slowly chip away at them until one day they fall, just like they tried, and failed, to do to him.
