Code of Conduct

A paladin of freedom must be of chaotic good alignment and loses all class abilities if she ever willingly commits an evil act. Additionally, a paladin of freedom's code requires that she respect individual liberty, help those in need (provided they do not use the help for evil or oppressively lawful ends), and punish those who threaten or curtail personal liberty.

While she may adventure with characters of any good or neutral alignment, a paladin of freedom will never knowingly associate with evil characters (except on some sort of undercover mission), nor will she continue an association with someone who consistently offends her moral code. A paladin of freedom may accept only henchmen, followers, or cohorts who are chaotic good.
