    From a quite Grimdark game my GM ran; said by my character standing atop a burning wizard tower, on huge debuffs due to torture, wearing nothing except rags, having just fought the Wizard to a standstill to stop a ritualistic sacrafice of a child.

    “You would risk your life and everything that is for one person?”
    “For one person? For one life! For one chance of love, for sorrow, joy, fear, kindness and for her to have a long life, dying hand in hand with the weeping children they brought into the world? YES! I WOULD DIE FOR THAT!”

    And then he punched the wizard off the edge of the Tower
    Sure, he died when the tower collapsed, but the NPC 'sacrifice' survived.

    We once fought together for an ideal with our swords. It wasn't for power or for glory, but to create a peaceful world where people could live without fear. And, if you could just get up, leave and forget about that, then what did you spend all those years fighting hopelessly for?


    "Justice doesn't mean law"


    Do what you feel in your heart to be right- you’ll be criticized either way anyway.


    Doing something and doing it badly is better than doing nothing perfectly.


    Men of genius are admitted; men of wealth are envied; men of power feared…but only a man of character is trusted.


    The strong cannot be happy. Triumphant, perhaps, but never happy.

    Just a few.

    From the best Paladin my group ever saw; having just saved a village, just before riding off into the desert on his raptor Mount (Spirits in the setting were Goblinoids and stuff basically; Humans and 'Spirits' were always at war, the Paladin was a sort of peace keeper attitude, protecting both sides since neither was in the right totally):

    "While evil flourishes and wrongs grow rank, while men are persecuted and women wronged, while weak things, human or Spirit, are maltreated, there is no rest for me beneath the skies, nor peace at any board or bed…plus it pays well.”

    A few Words from Father Benidictus, the Worlds Angriest Paladin; seriously, this guy was Paladin/Barbarian in equal amounts (GM was flexible with alignment restrictions)

    >“What can I say? When I get angry, really angry, I get angry right. I don’t smoulder, or make threats, or give warning. I burn, then I go cold, and then I make things happen as best I can. Anger is a wonderfully simple thing when it comes down to it really.”

    >Anger isn’t bad, no matter what people say, anger is natural, anger is human, anger is there for a reason. The world needs anger. The world often continues to allow terrible evil because it isn't angry enough.

    >“A man is about as big as the things that make him angry”

    >Most the time when I'm angry I have a good reason to be angry, but you need to remember one thing…even the best reason in the world, no matter how angry you are, doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

    >This world can stain me so badly that I will never be able to look at myself in the mirror again, it can poison my every intention and deed and turn it black, so I am forever known as a monster by the world, long after I am dead; it can turn every kindness I attempt into a tragedy, every gentle word into a lie…and take everything from me. But no matter what, it cannot bend my will. It will never stop me trying to do kindness.

    >The problem with trying to do what’s right is that so many other people are gleefully doing what’s very, very wrong.

    >I bet you’re wondering, ‘What makes a man like him? What makes him do the things he does?’…I’ll tell you, A man like him has a great, empty hole right through the middle of him. He can never do enough, or fight enough or put himself in enough pain to ever fill it. Then you’re asking yourself “What does he need?” He needs Revenge. For what? Against who? How? When I find out by filling the hole, I’ll let you know.

    >"There is good, and there is evil. There are those who commit crimes and those who stop them. The two sides are opposite, as different as day and night…in that there are constant shades and a blur where they meet.”

    War Orphans in a time when the world is warming up to the biggest war ever are awesome paladins.

    That is the fucking worst paladin I've ever heard. Certainly by the modern definition of paladin. Just because they are big armored knights, does not make them a paladin, if anything, it usually makes them a jackass.

    They sing no songs in Hel, nor do they celebrate heroes. For silent is that dismal realm and cheerless.
    But the story of the Gjallerbru and the lone god who defended it is whispered across the Nine Worlds. And when a new arrival asks about the one to whom even Hela bows her head, the answer is always the same.
    He stood alone at Gjallerbru. And that answer is enough.

    This one needs a bit of backstory; the entire game was based in a vast world where nature was basically CE; after one dick ass druid literally summoned the Spirit of Darwinism to the world to weed out the weak.
    Now the world was slowly being overcome by a vast and ancient forest that grew from the south, known as the Borderforests; our Paladin was a Necromantic Paladin, who defied Nature by creating undead to hold back the forest.
    One day, the Princess of the last human kingdom disappeared into the Forest, dooming her to a horrific life as a breeding slave to the 'chosen' races of the forest (Mostly Orcs and stuff, being the Apex predator species of the setting), out Paladin went 'Fuck that' and disappered into the forest wearing an ancient set of armour created by a Dark Lord in ancient times; wielding a +6 Plant Bane sword in one hand and a +4 Flaming Towershield in the other; leaving behind him a trail of blackened, dead plantlife as the armour was basically so EVIL that it siphoned off all the life in a nearby area (1 HP per turn for everything in a 10 foot radius.).

    We all assume he's fucked since we're only 10th level, (All the armour and crap came from the King, since the GM created it as part of the world fluff that there'd been a Dark Lord the Kings ancests had defeated and crap and that the armour literally grew in power with each kill.) and the GM himself said that the plan was that we were going to find a new heir.
    Paladin disappears for something like 7 sessions, we all assume his character is dead and the player is thinking up a new dude, he sits in on our sessions.

    Just as we finish the beginning of the 'Find the New Heir' Arc; theres a rucus, as something approaches from the Southern Forests; something so terrible that a fell storm follows in its wake, that the dead are rising in their coffins and unearthing themselves, then disappearing into the forests; and that the trees at the edge of the forest are withering and dying.
    We all think its Neo-Gaia come to fuck our shit...and prepare for a huge battle as fast as we can...when Sauron-adin comes out the Forest, riding a huge undead Boar Monster; with the Princess wearing the armour and the Paladin Emaciated by being near it, but still alive in an almost skeletal state. Think the effects of TB x1000.
    We break the armour down off the Princess, who is fine, naturally, and discharge its power using a McGuffin we had that can only be described as 'an Earth Wire for Supernatural Charge'
    The Paladin says 5 words before fainting; and taking 3 sessions an entire Quest Arc to recover; he looked back at the Forest behind him with a ratting breath and then whispered 'The Forest Knows my Name'
    We later found out he fought the Right hand of Neo-Gaia for the Princess's life and literally choked the life out of him by holding him down with the Death armour and impaling it on the spikes.

    Paraphrasing of the last words of the second (and last) paladin I ever played:

    "You killed my wife, you son of a bitch... you killed my little boy. Five years old. Five fucking years old. My shield is broken in two. My sword is out of reach. All I have is this dagger. Not even sharp enough to pierce your hide." He shakes his head, and turns the dagger toward his stomach. "It'll do for me, though. I hereby foreswear every oath I've made to uphold righteousness. Every oath to uphold order, to defend the innocent, give charity to the poor. Everything I've ever believed in, I renounce. And after all that, if my word still has any meaning, I want to muster all that meaning now, for these four words: I will end you. You do what you will to all these people. Carry on your merry little way, massacring innocent men, women, and children who just want to live happy, peaceful lives. But as you do, in the back of your mind, remember this: I will end you. When all is said and done, when you decide to return home... when you set foot in hell... I'll be waiting. And then, if I have to use my fingernails, if I have to bite your throat open, if I have to drag you screaming into oblivion with me, you will cease to be, and the last thing you see, hear, smell, touch, and taste, will be me. I. Will. End you." And then he ran himself through with the knife.

    "None of that, 'Oh well if you're truly sorry, there's nothing I can do," horseshit. No, he coup de graces your ass because he's a goddamn Paladin. His job is killing evil. You know what his job doesn't entail? Being a sympathetic ear for every whiny NE or CN or LE douchebag who's only being evil because the world is unfair to him or every punk that lets his own dislikes or laziness overcome his own personality. You know what unfair is? Being able to know what kind of person everyone is before you even talk to them. Smelling evil so potent on a motherfucker that you want to sink your fingers in his chest and pull that tar out until the screaming stops. Having the psychotic urge to murder people that you've never even met, for the sole reason that your God decided that you ought to be his right hand without your choice in the matter, that's unfair.
    But unlike Evil McBlacknails over there, that Paladin puts on his helmet, sharpens his sword, and then continues walking through crowds of people day by day, resisting the urge. Seeing evidence of injustice so black it makes him sick. Seeing murderers and rapists walk the street, watching good men hang as evil ones pull the lever. Saving his righteous violence for when the situation exactly, specifically, precisely calls for it. Surgically removing that which is most evil. Because he's a Paladin. And if he gave in to the urge, what would he be? Who will right the true wrongs if not he?
    It's not about not falling as a Paladin. It's about falling so fucking hard you crash through the planet and stand up on the other side."

    Let me put this into perspective for you: I once ran a lesbian half-celestial Aasimar rogue-paladin and I was told by the rest of the group, as well as several people not involved in the game, that I had the most compelling character.

    Christ, what a pain in the ass that game was. We had no less than two THAT GUYs at the fucking table. The monk/druid and the cleric/rogue Kender. The monk/druid would argue over anything, including the drop of a hat, at the drop of a hat. The Kender could only be described as a kleptomaniac "Evil Mcblacknails". Fortunately, this was Pathfinder, so I could see every bullshit thing he did.

    I read a great Cracked article about Popeye. Apparantly, since spinach gives everybody super-powers, WWII ended up becoming a cluster-fuck. Popeye never took off his uniform until '78, and since WWII killed about million people, his version killed 390,000,000 people (about one in every ten humans).

    "I don't do this because I like to hurt people... I could hurt people without all these rules and codes. I do this because I want to help people. I do this not because of who I can slay with my sword, but who I can heal with my hands. None of this comes naturally for me. Every single decision I make requires forethought. Would I be breaking my oath? Because I know the second I break my oath, I lose these gifts that have been given to me. So if you drive me to do something I regret... if you cause me to break my oath... if these hands can no longer heal... I got no problem picking up my old daggers, hunting you down, and doing all the things I'm not allowed to right now.

    "If I must choose between righteousness and peace, I choose righteousness."

    "No man is justified in doing evil on the grounds of expediency."

    The cause of demons is never more in jeopardy than when a human, no longer desiring but still intending to do good, looks round upon a universe in which every trace of it seems to have vanished, asks why he has been forsaken, and still obeys.

    "What does it mean, to be a paladin?"

    "It means to know what evils lurk in the hearts of men. It's to be able to look at a crowd and to *know* who there is evil--who is a murderer, who is a rapist, who peddles in flesh and human suffering."

    "It means to, every day, see the worst that humanity has to offer, to see the monsters dressed in the skin of men."

    "It means to fight, every day of your life, to train, to be vigilant, to never, ever, EVER let yourself waver."

    "It means to hold fast to your ideals and your goals. It means to help those who are helpless."

    "It means to show mercy to the merciless, and love to the loveless. To be a Paladin is to be thrown, head-first, into the worst people in the world... and to mourn them when they die."

    "To be a paladin is not a simple warrior or a priest. A Paladin takes no joy in death or in killing. Truely, a Paladin only fights so that, one day, he will be obsolete."

    "And to be a Paladin is to be perfectly fine with that."

    Amazing quotes, guys

    I'm not even close to being good at writing... but hey, let me try:

    I am the one who has lost his self-awareness,
    Just an insignificant piece of sand on the shore
    A spark of light in a sea of darkness,
    Still, I refuse to forsake this feeling I've got in my core.

    I am the wave, doomed to never reach the coast,
    The dry leaves the wind has just blown away
    Just a kid, first and foremost,
    Even so, my Will will never decay.

    I am the Tower, the Knight.
    The Priest and the Peasant.
    The Sword, the Shield,
    The Sacrifice.

    I am nobody.
    I am a paladin.

    God... fucking damn it. I have never cried so much or so hard than at my local theater's production of Man of La Mancha. I'm not going to lie and say they were manly tears. They weren't. These were the most distinctly unmanly tears I had cried in over five years. It was one of the best nights of my life.
