5e Kitsune Cleric

This is going to be a theoretical build based on an old character of mine from D&D 3.0 semi-reproduced on my Shadows of Undrentide game using some cosmetic changes to the avatar and using a base human model in the same way I created the satyri. There isn't a hengeyokai race, so I'll be using the Wildhunt Shifter instead. Her class was a cleric of the sun and she also had a tendency to summon celestial insects, but that's something only druids could do in 5e.




The background of the character is that she was the daughter of a human noblewoman who was seduced by a passing hengeyokai. Given her society considered hengeyokai to be earthbond spirits, she and her mother weren't killed for fear it would offend the gods, but they were isolated. Eventually an adventurer from the west discovered her and quested for permission to marry her (the family may have given him a plausibly difficult quest but wanted the embarrassment gone).  As a hengeyokai, she was much longer lived than her husband, and only started adventuring when her children had grown and had children of their own. She's been a basic village priestess for most of that time, not getting out of 1st level until she had no familial duty keeping her in place.

Despite the noble birth, I'm going with a Folk Hero background to deal with the fact that she's long been a wife of an adventurer turned farmer.

I'm using the 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10 array.

10 GP

Cantrips: Light, Mending, Sacred Flame, Spare the Dying
Prepared Spells: 4
Domain Spells: Burning Hands, Faerie Fire
Suggested Prepared Spells: Cure Wounds, Bless, Healing Word, Shield of Faith

Reasoning: The Sun domain was the most stand-out aspect of this character's theme, so that is the reason for the choice of domain. From this point on there isn't going to be much in the way of building a character. The cantrip selections represent a basic attack, a bonus cantrip from the Light domain, Spare the Dying and a very useful cantrip for a village priestess and farmer's wife.

2nd to 5th Level

2nd Level - Channel Divinity (1/Rest), Channel Divinity: Turn Undead, Channel Divinity: Radiance of the Dawn, +6 HP

3rd Level - +6 HP

4th Level - Ability Score Improvement: +2 Wis, +6 HP
Cantrip: Thaumaturgy

5th Level - Destroy Undead (CR 1/2), Proficiency Bonus +3, +6 HP

Reasoning: The only choice in this was Ability Score Improvement, which I chose to use to increase Wisdom. Charisma is listed as a stat of secondary importance to clerics, but it doesn't seem to be actually used in any of their abilities, so this character might have a few feats. The cantrip chosen was the divine version of Prestidigitation allowing for a lot of creative uses.

Reasoning: Her Wisdom is not at the maximum level. The next Ability Score Improvement will likely be a feat.

18th Level - Channel Divinity (3/Rest), +6 HP

19th Level - Ability Score Improvement: Con +2, +25 HP

20th Level - Divine Intervention Improvement, +7 HP

Reasoning: The feats here represent the character becoming something of a leader of the faith rather than simply a errant priestess doing basic missions. She would pick up skills in reading people, history and diplomacy. Increasing Con improves her survivability.
