Paladins are holy warriors and crusaders. They are as stubborn as they are devout and often develop their own peculiar ideas about the religion they are professing. Paladins sometimes generate these ideas from visions they receive while in altered mental states. Paladins are unfailingly egocentric. This is what set them on the career path that they're on, as opposed to simply joining the military or clergy. They often make themselves out as prophets or even gods, and more or less believe this delusion. The culmination of the Paladin Syndrome is a powerful warrior with divine gifts, making a truly formidable foe to the forces of evil.

Paladins are a hybrid between a warrior and a cleric, similar to Templar. The primary difference between a Paladin and a Templar is that Paladins have better combat skills and less powerful healing magic. Skills suchs as Blade Dance, Two-Handed Weapons, and Heal make them versatile in any situation.

Some skills/spells that are (mostly) unique to the Paladin class are:

Blade Dance
Firewitch's Seance
Rimbol's Invocation
Siva's Sacrifice
Smote's Anachronism
Swayde's Mercy
Vampire Hunting
Werewolf Hunting
Witch Hunting
Wrist Shield
