Prerequisite: Only a vindicator can take this paragon path.
As your power grows, so too does your talent for violence. Fed by the visceral thrill of facing down an invading army, the grim joy of slaying a self-assured tyrant, the beast within never remains sated for long. Nevertheless, you continue to choose a path of virtue, carefully directing its bloodthirst ever toward the deserving.
Vicious Vindicator Path Features

Steeled Soul (11th level): Your ceaseless training has steeled you against your foe’s influence; you cannot control your inner darkness without first controlling your fears. You gain a +2 bonus to saving throws and a +4 bonus to saving throws against fear effects.
Grim Hunger (16th level): You have combat advantage against creatures suffering ongoing damage. Whenever you reduce a creature suffering ongoing damage to 0 hit points, you regain one use of your grim smite this encounter.
