Hell's Keeper

"Nothing is more treacherous or more deserving of a terrible fate than a devil. I know. The truth is in my blood."

Prerequisite: Tiefling, any divine class

In a bleak period of the Dawn War, Asmodeus, then merely an exarch, rose up and slew his god. As punishment, the gods imprisoned Asmodeus and his followers in the Nine Hells, and thus the devils were born. Whether in error or wisdom, the gods released Asmodeus when they deemed that one evil was necessary to fight another: the primodials. Who can say now which was the lesser evil, especially since Asmodeus did help to defeat the primordials and imprison them?

You know one thing for certain. The Nine Hells should be a prison. Asmodeus and his devils ought to be locked away to inflict their horrors upon each other. Perhaps they ought never have been released.

You want the devils returned to their hells, and your god blesses your desire. It is your quest that Baator again become the bane of infernal creatures rather than their refuge, and the deity you honor has given you the tools to make that happen. You will not rest until every devil bears the burning chains of its own sins. And when the last divine gate slams shut and the last enchanted lock clicks home, you still will not rest. Hell will need its keepers.
