I thought I should keep the tradition alive of me posting random selfies before an exam, I know you all want to see these, bc they’re a work of art, and I mean, just look at that face. I call dis piece “before she fails”, it’s inspired by law school, hope you like n good night to you allllll

Well, sadly not a Paladin story, but in a Mutants & Masterminds game I’m running there’s this character, Akahi, a samurai-themed vigilante with ki abilities, a code against killing humans (demons are okay, but humans no) and too much righteous fury for his own good.
The kid has been going through a rough patch lately, a bad break-up, being tortured, had his soul mostly-removed, was turned into a rabbit and then, to top it all off, a UN-dependant organization of demon-hunters revealed that they had injected him with a swarm of nanomachines, which they used to remotely command his body while he slept, they used him to spy on the rest of the party and, to poor Akahi’s shock and horror, to assassinate a sorcerer, a HUMAN sorcerer, forcing him to break his most sacred rule.
Akahi was shattered, it was just too much, he couldn’t bring himself to get out of his own damn bed, until another character, Shirahime, gave him a bit of a pep-talk, obviously, it didn’t just put him back on his feet immediately, “Have you ever stop to think that maybe the humanity we protect only exists in our minds, Shirahime?” he told her. “If it only exists in our minds, then it dies when you give up on it, honey”
Later in the game, the same organization that basically highjacked Akahi’s body was attacked by some very weird, lovecraftian demons, and Akahi could have just watched his enemies go mad and burn, he could have discarded his honor, the same way they made him do… but that wasn’t him, he would not let those who called him “monster” and “murderer” define his legacy, anyone can fight for hate, but only a true hero, a true warrior can stand for something bigger.
Akahi fought to defend those men, not because he forgave them, not because the were righteous, but because it was the right thing to do, because it was justice. It was bigger that him or them. And he stood for something bigger.
