Often thirsty for power, Warlock's derive their power from dark hellish sources. Some aquire it from a demonic ancestry, others make bargains with fell creatures for power. Some are even forcibly recruited by those dark powers.
Warlock powers are characterised by fire, dark and chaos. The demonic power they weild slowly twists their physical form to match their dark souls.
