The Paladin is famed in stories as a fighter possessing the utmost virtue and purity. The Highmen train Paladins from their youth to follow the strict path of obedience. Along that path, they are given a steed which represents the animal inside of every mortal which must be tamed. At first, the animal is wild and unbridled, impossible to control and hardly a thing of use. But the Paladin learns not to destroy the animal, but teaches it to obey and serve him as a trusted Master. Properly bridled, the animal within, just as the warrior's steed, is a thing of great power.
Paladins learn the fine skill of healing. They can also Turn Undead, which they tend to use when the undead cannot be struck by their long swords.
