  • Fire in the Fray (Recharges on a Short or Long Rest). The ancestor of glory shouts the names of its ancestors, fellow angels, or its deity, and leaps into an unoccupied space that it can see within 30 feet of itself. When the ancestor lands at the chosen point, waves of flames rush outward. Enemies within 30 feet of it must make a DC 15 Dexterity saving throw. On a failed save, a creature takes 17 (5d6) fire damage. On a successful save, the damage is halved.


Ancestors of glory are spirits who enjoy honorable fights, glorious battles, and righteous victories. Watching over glorious combatants (p. 52), observing their battles, and relishing in their victories, they may even intervene in these battles if they find it necessary.

Different Forms. An ancestor of glory can be the spirit of a glorious knight, an angel, or a creature of another form. It can act independently, be the servant of a deity of glory, or be an angelic emissary. If the ancestor is an angel, its alignment becomes lawful, its type becomes celestial, and it gains resistance to radiant damage. Additionally, an ancestor of glory doesn’t require food, drink, or sleep.

Fiery Zealots. An ancestor of glory is zealous about their ideals; ideals of glory. This eagerness manifests itself as the burning flames that cover their weapons.

Mortal-like Celebrations. An ancestor of glory celebrates victories as mortals do. They enjoy massive celebrations, ceremonies, and even drinking and feasting if they are able to do so.
