Paladin Code

The paladins of Shizuru are warriors who serve just lords, peacekeepers who oppose banditry, and those who advocate for honored ancestors. When great heroes fall, these dedicated paladins sometimes ritually preserve the bodies for later revivification. Their tenets include the following affirmations.
  • My blade will be as steady as the sun and my training will be as consistent; I shall respect what I have mastered and seek to impart this training to others.
  • I will honor my ancestors, who have come before me and provided for my life.
  • The bonds of love extend across any distance, but I will not add to the burden by separating lovers.
  • My personal honor ref lects on my family and my liege; I will conscientiously maintain my reputation for the sake of theirs, even on the battlefield.
  • As I respect the Empress of Heaven, so will I respect my sworn liege.
