Paladins are fearsome knights who have risen above their comrades through experience and martial might. They have performed great deeds on the battlefield and defeated particularly dangerous foes. Their reputation precedes them, being every bit as deadly as the greatest heroes of the Empire - often even more so. Some might be noble Knights of the Realm, whilst others may have taken the Questing Vow, travelling the land and performing acts of heroism in search of the Grail. Some Paladins are blessed with having a noble Pegasus as their mount, and many are equipped with enchanted weapons and armour, potent relics of holy significance, often taken from the vaults of Grail Chapels.
