Fiend Slayer

The purpose of these asura is to protect the Material Plane and the upper planes from fiends and other unholy abominations. They take to training as warriors to hone the necessary skills and build fortitude. They often possess centuries of experience and expertise with all manner of arms and tactics, but many have preferred weapons and combat styles.

    When engaging high profile dangers in battle, a fiend slayer will attempt to keep the strongest foe’s attention focused on itself while its allies flank the enemy. When possible, an asura will quickly dispatch or scatter weaker foes; otherwise it will attempt to disable the greatest threat.
