The Aberration (5e Subclass)
From D&D Wiki
Your patron is a powerful entity from the Far Realms, a place of madness beyond reality, far away from the standard cosmology. You have bound yourself to an Aboleth, a Beholder, a Mind Flayer or an Alhoon. Its goals may be impossible to understand from your perspective, but these is something you do understand: these creatures value the power of the mind above all else, and they value those that understand the potency of the mind.
- Expanded Spell List
The Aberration lets you choose from an expanded list of spells when you learn a warlock spell. The following spells are added to the warlock spell list for you.

|3rd||lightning bolt, slow.|
