Lone Punisher

"Save your pleas for the devils, scum. We both know what you are… and what you deserve."
Prerequisite: Duskblade, Brutal Avenger

Many decent folks have been wronged and hunger for justice, but few of them are strong enough to get it themselves. They trust the law to bring them justice, but in the worst places the light shed by the authorities is as black as the savage wilderness between them. Criminals wait to be punished; passed over by the law due to incompetence, cowardice, or corruption, the scum of the world sits on thrones built from the unpaid vengeance of those they have hurt.
You are their debter. You will not sit by and allow evil to go unpunished, nor will you let the weak suffer because of the strong. You have been given a curse… a dark power which haunts you in the night. But to those you help, it is a gift. You will fight for those who can't fight for themselves, you will punish those which blind justice has overlookeed. You are a lone punisher, walking always in darkness, watching and waiting for the guilty. They will be judged…
