Advancement CR 8 Version

Paladin of Tyranny variant from Unearthed Arcana. The weak will flaw is also from Unearthed Arcana.

Note: Technically, according to the rules for Corrupt creatures from the Book of Vile Darkness, Aasimars cannot be Corrupted because they are Outsiders. However, I felt that this was a reasonable exception to that rule, and it fits very well with the character idea as well.

Darius Lawbringer's weak will has allowed him to be further manipulated by the small, banished devil to the point that he has undergone a dark, unnatural ritual and become wholly corrupted by evil. His eyes still glow golden, but they are tainted by dark red streaks, his silver hair has begun turning black, and his former wisdom and angelic handsomeness have been torn away by the darkness that now boils in his heart. In return, he has become unnaturally strong and diabolically tough, healing almost instantly from nonmagical weapons, and even healing quickly from those attacks. The banished devil is trying to lead him on a terrible crusade of revenge against the holy gods who "betrayed" him.
