Paladin Alignment by Thrythlind Paladin Alignment by Thrythlind
There is a derth of actual fictional paladins. So I stretched a bit and used fanon or early character interpretation but here we go.

Legal - misunderstands Lawful as being about Civil and Criminal Law. Thus will be about following the rules of society more than personal discipline and honor.

Awful - will often seem not to be acting to the Lawful alignment at all, will make some actions to maintain a superficial connection to their stated alignment

Nice - misunderstands Good as being Nice. Or focuses only on being good to a small segment of the population such as their friends or family.

Stupid - refuses to do common sense things because they're not "Good" or uses rationalizations such as "Well I believe he's evil, so killing him is good whether or not my character is correct."

Also check David's Eddings Elenium series. Sparhawk is one of my favorite examples of a paladin type character.

good or slightly off ideal...because I found several excellent examples (when all I needed was one) what I was having difficulty with was finding paladins that were a little bit off the ideal

nice though I don't recognize most of these. The fictional paladins I am most familiar with from be the Deed of Paksenarrion which was written apparently as a reaction after the author listened to a someone role-play a Paladin and though such a character wouldn't act that why and of course David Webber's the war god's own.

Though I learned about Deed and it's apparent inspiration while looking for characters.

Haven't read those two books yet...I used mostly characters I thought would be easily recognizable to the roleplaying set.

one is from one of the dungeons and dragons movie and would be pretty much unknown....but D&D players like to moan about it

This definitely brought a smile to my face when I read it. Well done.
