Medicant Preacher (Inquisitor/Monk)

Not every servant of the gods is a warrior or even a skilled combatant. Legends exist about holy men and women that despise worldly wealth and commodities who roam the lands in ascetic poverty, using only their faith as their shield and their words as their weapon. These mendicant preachers preach to both animals and sentient creatures alike, in hopes of converting them to their deities' edicts. They possess great diplomatic abilities, and without swords or armor their greatest defense and weapon is their inspired words that weaken the enemies of their faiths and strengthen the members of their flocks. Mendicant preachers are devotees of the divine virtues, endowed with a godly power far different from any other, thanks in part to their strict vows and discipline, and have the capacity to talk with all living beings. Though most mendicant preachers are pacifists are good aligned, evil friars do exist, preaching the virtues of wicked gods such as fear, blind obedience, and self-flagellation as means to achieve divine perfection in this life.
