Paladins are indomitable warriors who’ve pledged their prowess to something greater than themselves. Paladins smite enemies with divine authority, bolster the courage of nearby companions, and radiate as if a beacon of inextinguishable hope. Paladins are transfigured on the field of battle, exemplars of divine ethos in action.
A Paladin is given the responsibility to unflinchingly stand before an enemy’s charge, smiting them with his sword while protecting his allies with his sacrifice. Where others waver and wonder, his motivation is pure and simple, and his devotion is his strength. Where others scheme and steal, he takes the high road, refusing to allow the illusions of temptation to dissuade him from his obligations.
It is said that a Paladin takes up his blessed sword and sanctified shield, as a brave warrior, and charges forward to hallowed glory!
