This is my D&D alter ego, Exeter Nightpool, Path of Descent Paladin and defender of the vulnerable and oppressed. I wanted to do something different with an Aasimar, so the wings came out more science-fiction than fantasy and I used an energy effect to illustrate him preparing to unleash a Divine Smite.
