- Detect Evil (Sp): At will, a paladin can use detect evil, as the spell.
- Smite Evil (Su): Once per day, a paladin may attempt to smite evil with one normal melee attack. She adds his/her Charisma bonus (if any) to his/her attack roll and deals 1 extra point of damage per paladin level. If the paladin accidentally smites a creature that is not evil, the smite has no effect, but the ability is still used up for that day.
- At 5th level, and at every five levels thereafter, the paladin may smite evil one additional time per day, as indicated on Table: The Paladin, to a maximum of five times per day at 20th level.
- Divine Grace (Su): At 2nd level, a paladin gains a bonus equal to his/her Charisma bonus (if any) on all saving throws.
- Lay on Hands (Su): Beginning at 2nd level, a paladin with a Charisma score of 12 or higher can heal wounds (his/her own or those of others) by touch. Each day she can heal a total number of hit points of damage equal to his/her paladin level x his/her Charisma bonus. A paladin may choose to divide his/her healing among multiple recipients, and she doesn’t have to use it all at once. Using lay on hands is a standard action.
- Alternatively, a paladin can use any or all of this healing power to deal damage to undead creatures. Using lay on hands in this way requires a successful melee touch attack and doesn’t provoke an attack of opportunity. The paladin decides how many of his/her daily allotment of points to use as damage after successfully touching an undead creature.
- Aura of Courage (Su): Beginning at 3rd level, a paladin is immune to fear (magical or otherwise). Each ally within 10 feet of him/her gains a +4 morale bonus on saving throws against fear effects.

- Divine Health (Ex): At 3rd level, a paladin gains immunity to all diseases, including supernatural and magical diseases.

- To prepare or cast a spell, a paladin must have a Wisdom score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a paladin’s spell is 10 + the spell level + the paladin’s Wisdom modifier.
- Like other spellcasters, a paladin can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. His/her base daily spell allotment is given on Table: The Paladin. In addition, she receives bonus spells per day if she has a high Wisdom score. When Table: The Paladin indicates that the paladin gets 0 spells per day of a given spell level, she gains only the bonus spells she would be entitled to based on his/her Wisdom score for that spell level The paladin does not have access to any domain spells or granted powers, as a cleric does.
- A paladin prepares and casts spells the way a cleric does, though she cannot lose a prepared spell to spontaneously cast a cure spell in its place. A paladin may prepare and cast any spell on the paladin spell list, provided that she can cast spells of that level, but she must choose which spells to prepare during his/her daily meditation.

- Special Mount (Sp): Upon reaching 5th level, a paladin gains the service of an unusually intelligent, strong, and loyal steed to serve him/her in his/her crusade against evil (see below). This mount is usually a heavy warhorse (for a Medium paladin) or a warpony (for a Small paladin).
- Once per day, as a full-round action, a paladin may magically call his/her mount from the celestial realms in which it resides. This ability is the equivalent of a spell of a level equal to one-third the paladin’s level. The mount immediately appears adjacent to the paladin and remains for 2 hours per paladin level; it may be dismissed at any time as a free action. The mount is the same creature each time it is summoned, though the paladin may release a particular mount from service.
- Each time the mount is called, it appears in full health, regardless of any damage it may have taken previously. The mount also appears wearing or carrying any gear it had when it was last dismissed. Calling a mount is a conjuration (calling) effect.
- Should the paladin’s mount die, it immediately disappears, leaving behind any equipment it was carrying. The paladin may not summon another mount for thirty days or until she gains a paladin level, whichever comes first, even if the mount is somehow returned from the dead. During this thirty-day period, the paladin takes a –1 penalty on attack and weapon damage rolls.
- Remove Disease (Sp): At 6th level, a paladin can produce a remove disease effect, as the spell, once per week. She can use this ability one additional time per week for every three levels after 6th (twice per week at 9th, three times at 12th, and so forth).
- Code of Conduct: A paladin must be of lawful good alignment and loses all class abilities if she ever willingly commits an evil act.
- Additionally, a paladin’s code requires that she respect legitimate authority, act with honor (not lying, not cheating, not using poison, and so forth), help those in need (provided they do not use the help for evil or chaotic ends), and punish those who harm or threaten innocents.
- Associates: While she may adventure with characters of any good or neutral alignment, a paladin will never knowingly associate with evil characters, nor will she continue an association with someone who consistently offends his/her moral code.

General Character Information Edit
Code Of Chivalry EditThe code of chivalry was born to regulate the often vicious lifestyle of professional warriors. Paladins have taken to its principles because the strength of their faith lends credence to its philosophy, and because its idea of an enlightened man of war appeals to their own way of life.
- Administer justice.
- Death before dishonor.
- Defend the weak and innocent.
- Destroy evil in all its monstrous forms.
- Die with honour.
- Do not be blinded by anger.
- Exhibit manners.
- Fight with honour.
- Never abandon a friend, ally or noble cause.
- Never betray a confidence or comrade.
- Never attack an unarmed foe.
- Never lie, never break your word.
- Prove your courage in word and deed.
- Serve your king and country.
- Show respect to authority.
- Uphold freedom, justice and all that is good.
Faith and Following Edit
Creed of the Triad:
Tyr is the sword of justice whose wrath punishes the wicked, Torm is the shield of faith who protects the weak, and Ilmater is the beating heart who tempers each with mercy and compassion.
Reveal the truth, punish the guilty, right the wrong and always be true and just in your actions.
Uphold the law wherever you go and punish those who do wrong under the law.
Keep a record of your own rulings, deeds and decisions, for through this your errors can be corrected, your grasp on the law of all the lands will flourish and you ability to identify lawbreakers will expand.
Be vigilant in your observations and anticipations so you may detect those who plan injustces before their actions threaten law and order.
Deliver vengeance to the guilty for those who cannot do it themselves.
Knights of the Merciful Sword:
This order of Tyr's paladins, currently seventy strong, focuses on upholding good in the word (as defined by Tyr). It regularly quests to find and slay all kinds of evil monsters, particularly demons. Members are on very good terms with the Knights of Holy Judgement, another large paladin order serving Tyr. Exceptional Merciful Swords of this order can be selected to join the Hammers of Grimjaws, an elite order of holy knights. Paladins of the Merciful Sword can freely multiclass as fighters and divine champions.
Kashir is a strong willed man, and determined to do the right thing no matter the personal cost. He seldom stops to think about what he wants or needs, attempting to serve Tyr or others in some fashion. He is not quite as innocent as he appears, but he doesn't like to let that show. He is very unsure about romantic affairs as he has only had two lovers in his past which he doesn't speak about.
He encourages people to work together, and will take the lead in tasks that have fixed goals. He's fearless and often the first in a charge, often with unfortunate results.
Being a relative newcomer to Mistriven Falls, Kashir has made both friends and enemies. Given his lifestyle and uncertainty combined with his lack of experience around women, he is somewhat shy with the opposite sex, unless they are riding into battle beside him. Many people find amusement at this and his serious nature, and poke fun at him, most often which he does not get at all.
- Besan "Balrock" Balmorrow: In many ways the complete opposite of Kashir, though he's a good hearted half orc. Bouncer at Ye Olde Tavern in Mistriven Falls, Besan isn't shy, and is very down to earth and approachable. Kashir considers him a good friend, and someone he can get advice about women from. Recently Kashir has gotten himself involved in helping see him wed to Elle and doing whatever he can to make things go well for Besan.
- Cecilia Eaves: Sharessian, at first she terrified him, and she loves to tease him, but overall has a very big heart and likes to share gifts with everyone. Kashir trusts her with his life, and respects her as a friend, though nothing more.
- Cerin Te'les: Druid and healer, and particularly recognized for his wisdom and continued efforts, he is well liked by many people, including Kashir. A diverse man whom Kashir rather likes, his elvish outlook and amusement at his romantic inneptitude not withstanding. Kashir considers the druid a fast friend and would do anything to help him, especially after learning what Cerin risked in Old Yulash to save him and Besan. Kashir often wonders how he deals with elves long lifepans and seeing all that has been lost over that time.
- Chaelvin Kerten: Red haired practitioner of magic, and follower of Mystra, a grand ally, but his troublesome grasping for power through any means at all often leave Kashir concerned. Questionable acts such as extorting gems from prisoners and doing things without stopping to think of their consequences often leave Kashir wondering how much Chaelvin is to be trusted.
- Dawn Darkmoon: The epitome of beauty and grace and what any knight should be. Dawn continues to be a shining example of what any knight should strive for, but the feelings between the two of them has blossomed into what Kashir belives is love. Though often busy with duties, the two remain comitted to each other, much to the chagrin of many ladies.
- Lady Elle Menson: Elle confuses him, one moment she seems warm and carefree, the next afraid of him and reluctant to talk to him. Always trying to meddle in his love life. At times recklessly brave, others very much afraid. Very beautiful but sad, he hopes Besan will make her smile once more. He is somewhat confused about her relationship with the Prince of Shou, and that with her dead husband. Often trying to get Elle and Besan to look past the little slights they percieve each other and remember they love each other and to keep that in mind.
- Hitomi Nakamura: Samurai from the far off Kara-tur, Kashir's closest friend. Perhaps the one who best knows him, always willing to poke fun at him, but who understand his need for law and order. She lives and dies for honour, a concept that is well understood by him, though some of the tenants of Bushido escape him. Since the committment to Dawn she has drawn back somewhat, and even more so now that she has become Ronin. Kashir still considers her a very good friend and looks out for her. When he sees her.
- Kirisyar Clark: A puzzling woman, oddly silent at times, yet her skills that manifest in her warlock powers are intruguing. He's fought at her side many times and though at times he finds her a little odd and confusing, Kris has become a good friend. Other than a pechant for winding up naked in akward situations they have become fast friends, kashir defending her at a trial in Mistriven where the locals accused her of being a witch.
- Malistra Theron: A woman he feels conflicted about. Beautiful, sensual, erotic, uninhibited, follower of Sune. The priestess is a good person, with powerful convictions. Kashir has seen how all people flock to her beauty, and is envious of how well she handles affairs of the heart. He is afraid at how easily she can persuade him to do most anything. He has come to trust and immensely value her advice for despite personal attraction between them, she always has given him good advice and pointed him in the right direction.
- Noc Wylan Amilcnam: Kashir doesn't know what to make of this man. His demonic heritage maked Kashir mistrust him, but his fierce devotion to his bondmate and his practical advice are often needed. Surprisingly the first one to defend Kashir from an assasin. Time and time again Noc impresses him with his practical and steadfast choices to do the right thing. He's also come to respect the playful yet intense relationship with his bondmate Lia.
- Raya Lyonall: From old Yulash, Kashir is somewhat baffled by this woman. Dark and brooding at times, her faith is that of the Morning Lord. She more often than not seems frustrated at her innability to control Kashir, and has on more than one occasion physically hit him for actions she belives to be wrong. They work together on occasion, but he is still no closer to understanding her.
- Riven: Womanizing rogue, he's not as terrible as he likes to make out, though he is forever complaining about gold. They have a friendly banter going on at times, though Kashir is cautious about trusting him too far.
- Sawnyara Merswan: Talented bardess and swashbuckler, at times Kashir is uncomfortable around her, and her need to write about him. Pretty and a stalwart companion with an upbeat attitude no matter what is happening. Sadly he has seen little of Sawnyara recently in part due to his own tasks.
- Selene Fir'ess: Half-elven, darker complexion, pretty, poweverful soreress. A trusted friend, and valuable ally, or so he'd thought. After recent events he is not sure where they stand now. After betraying his trust, kashir is not sure if Selene is truly sorry or just putting an act on for him. As much as it ashames him, a deep dark part of him is attracted to her.
- Sheighley Flynn: Bardess and attractive young woman, Kashir finds her trustworthy, and someone he can simply talk to without any fear about judgement. Oddly she hasn't teased him or flirted with him, and Kashir admires her beautiful voice and her creativity. He trusts her as much as her lover Malistra. And in some cases he finds it easier to talk to her than anyone, knowing she will keep his confidence.
- Wylin Maidenshealer: A very earnest and likable Healer of Torm, he has become fast friends with Kashir. Kashir would go to any lengths to help the serious young man, and freely shares what resources and wealth he has with Wylin. Very close in religious belief, the friendship is one that continues to grow. Though they haven't spent as much time together at late, Kashir still respect the healer and his abilities.
- Ben: At best Kashir had been wary of the man that always seemed to take delight in making comments behind people's backs, but recently after he learned that Ben had revealed a sensative matter to anyone who would listen without a thought for the consequence, he's earned the paladin's disfavour. Until he sees Ben serve someone's interests but his own, this will likely continue.
- Tezrak the Warmonger: An impressively strong fighter, but without control or caution. He kills without regard and care of the consequence, often exasberating bad situations with his forceful personality. After hearing about Kreignar and the fact it is most likely Tezzrak, it has only caused Kashir to redouble his training efforts, if only to be the one to stand in his way and rampaging unchecked. Tezzrak's continued action without thought is earned him significant disdain from the paladin, and Kashir now actively attempts to thwart any plans he can of Tezzrak.
Kashir is now a seasoned veteran. Five years of service in Cormyr saw to that. Stationed at the temple of the Triad in Thundralun (halfway between Arabel and Highmoon), he's spent much of the last five years fighting the Shadovar and patrolling the Moonsea Ride and Hullack Trail. The most notable deeds of his time in Cormyr were resupplying the Purple Dragons garrisoned in Halfhap, the front line against the seige from the Shadovar. The other was being part of an expedition into the Tilverton scar to recover relics lost in that temple with the cities near instant destruction. They rode into the plane of shadow and returned, though it was not without cost, and somethiing he does not like to talk about. For their bravery they got to meet Regent Alusair who personally thanked them, those that returned that is.
Kashir's unyielding faith and his dedication made him many friends and admirers in Cormyr. He worked with followers of many good faiths to make the lives of people better wherever he could. He'd been awestruck to meet a special woman though, one not of Toril surprisingly. Taly’siana was her name, and she'd been a Half-celestial, her mother being elvish. They had fallen in love quickly, and it was rare for them to be apart. Her years of wisom and training at a monestary to Marduk the Justice Bringer had made her ideals similar to Kashir's own, and the destruction of the monestary in the ravages of the blood wars had only drawn Kashir to want to protect her more. However, Kashir also made many enemies, and often was on the road. They'd become engaged on one of his breaks, and in turn Taly’siana had become pregnant. Unfortunately Red Wizards of Thay did not take being twarted lightly.
Kashir had never suspected they would go after Taly’siana, but that they did, sending arcane assassains while Kashir was on the seige lines of Halfhap. Kashir's life had truly known darkness and despair then. For months he'd neglected his friends, his duties, his god and questioned everything that he was. In the end he'd recovered his faith, but his life had not been the same. The looks of pity, those who shied away, not knowing what to say, those afraid of even saying HER name.
So the word had come from the clergy, he would be sent to new lands, of course officially the reason was to spread the word of Tyr, and expand the faith. Unofficially it was a chance for a fresh start, a chance to heal old wounds and return once more to being the paragon of Tyr that he had been before the death of his fiancee. He fears most that in letting someone close to him again that they will be hurt because of his actions.
Kashir claims to have come to Mistriven Falls to spread Tyr's faith and to help those in need. He was instated as a full knight of the Merciful Sword my the mayor of Mistriven Falls after helping successfully resupply the front lines against Zhengi's forces. This was done with the blessing of Fortress Faithful in Tethyr.
Important Accomplishments Edit
Resupplying the Front Lines: Kashir was part of a successful mission to resupply the front lines against Zhengi's forces and press a counter attack to eliminate a fire giant lieutenant. Kashir was knighted by the mayor of Mistriven on behalf of the Order of the Merciful Sword for his part in this event and also given a set of equipment including Ascendant Justice for being named a full member.
Recovering Treasure Map of the Lost Treasure of Yulash: Part of a group to recover a map pointing to the gold stolen from the bank vaults of Yulash, and impresioned by the Baron of Fellhurst for trial in the murder of several patrons of Fellhurst's temple. Vindicated of all charges and released, though the Baron held a trial with a fake Kashir whom was turned into undead.
Journey to the Necropolis: Kashir was part of a group that went to the Necropolis to accomplish two things: the rescue of Cerin's clone, and to help Hitomi gather the green dragon orb. Both objectives were completed, though their escape was a narrow thing.
The Battle on the walls of Mistriven: Like just about every other adventurer in the city, Kashir stood at the gates when the hordes of Zhengyi attacked, defending it with the best of his ability. Surprisingly he was left in charge of defending the North gate with very few people remaining to help after the initial wave of attacks.
Journey Into the Mists: Part of a group that went into the mists with the gypsy Frank. A dangerous venture to recover a plant from a druid grove near or perhaps at what was left of Moonkiss. After nearly being devoured by cannibalistic halflings while trying to defend Besan's actions, he's feeling guilty that Cerin was left to fend for himself after risking his life to save the both of them.
Important Items, and Lore EditBeing a paladin his equipment is his primary concern, for it is his primary tool to fight evil wherever he goes. To that extent Ascendant Justice (holy avenger) is his most potent tool in the pursuit of law and order.
Kashir also collects books, and perhaps in the far off future, dreams of retiring to run a library, though not many know of that particular desire.
Ascendant Justice (Holy Avenger)Edit
Ascendant Justice, is a legendary weapon, reknowned for it's ability to bring Tyr's Justice wherever it goes. Borne by a succession of paladins, it is used to bring justice to even the darkest corners of Faerun. It is a legendary weapon that make evil beings qual and tremble in fear.
History: Forged at an unnamed monestrary in the Calim desert in 1037 DR, this legendary weapon was created to bring justice in a realm that had none at the time. Destined to be one of four blades, the monestary was overrun by evil efreeti and this blade was smuggled out and north into Tethyr.
Over the years it's surfaced in many places around the Shining Sea. Amn, Calimshan, Tethyr and Wealdeath, rumors exist of it's appearance in all of these lands.
A recovered journal indicates that Ascendant Justice made it into the Border Kingdoms of The Lake of Steam, and was used to quell orc raids, and try and promote justice in the region. The blade was thought to have been lost until recently, when it was recovered by a young paladin named Reginald Marswood in 1331 DR.
For the past 50 years Ser Reginald has wielded the blade in the pursuit of justice in Tyr's name from the strength of Fortress Faithful in Tethyr. He has passed on this blade and sent it from Tethyr into the Moonsea region, placing it in the hands of the young paladin Kashir Brathand, who will undoubtedly add to the blade's storied history.
Description: Ascendant Justice is forged of unknown metal and inlaid with mithril. The hilt is wrapped in drake hide, the crossguard is engraved with a small pair of balanced scales. When in the hands of a paladin the blade glows with holy light but remains otherwise unremarkable, save the celestial words etched into the blade running down either side. Whomever wield the blade automatically understands the runes, which describe Ascendant Justice's name, it's powers and it's purpose. They also know that the runes are celestial in nature.

The Cold Iron ForgeEdit
Something Kashir had never even dreamed of, he now owns a small smithy, in which he sells equipment from. This has proved very profitible in war torn Mistriven Falls. With his own skills supplemented by arms and equipment he recovers, he supplies a great number of adventurers in Mistriven Falls with their first... and last line of defence against Zhengyi's undead hordes. Nestled behind the town smithy, most people know where to look when searching for top quality equipment for adventuring.
Born 16 Alturiak, 1354 DR. Year of the Bow Born under the Sign of the Eagle and with New Selûne under the sign of the Raven
Those born under the sign of the Eagle are determined, resilient and ambitious. Good organisers, leaders and strategists, they are not deterred by setbacks, believing hard work, patience and persistance will triumph. They are loyal but reserved in showing affection.
Those born with Selûne under the sign of the Raven are self sufficient, lively, impetuous and outspoken. They dislike routine and refuse to be pressured by others. Restless and highly energetic, they thrive on change and need constant mental and physical challenge.
OOC Information Edit
I don't bite. If you want to interact with me send me a tell. If you want to do something naughty or nice, I'm at least willing to listen, your mileage may vary.

Temptation: The path of a paladin is a tough one, Kashir is willing to walk any quest that will challenge his values, and the consequences that come along with those choices.
