A paladin is a warrior that has been so wholly dedicated to his or her God and to the cause of good that they have been "touched" by divinity and granted limited magical powers. They are a lawful good class of character, possessing a strict moral code of virtue and chivalry. Paladins may on occasion consort with evil persons or beings, but they tend to shy away from any who follow the evil ways of the world. A paladin who breaks their moral code or falls out of favor with their God, does not become a blackguard.
Paladins are hearty fighters that specialize in protecting their allies via their spells and melee powers.
Paladins gain a 20% bonus to hit while wielding a 2 handed weapon.
