I only started playing D&D again last years since my last game when I was 12.
My current character is a paladin who belongs to an special order of the church which does the dirty work. He has his doubts about the organisation and also struggles with his own views of whats right and wrong.
After 2 sessions with my party I think this character will end up being what they call a fallen paladin who loses all his privileges and powers but gains freedom to act out of the rules of his order. he had to look like this as I love bulky characters with crazy amounts of armour and pockets with over the top weapons.
