Paladins are soldiers for The Holy Nation, typically acting as veteran troops and occasionally minor squad leaders. They often go on patrols alongside Holy Servants, and are commanded by High Paladins.

Paladins can be seen manning Crossbow Turrets on walls and rooftops in Holy Nation towns. However, most of the day-to-day guarding of towns is handled by Holy Sentinels, who are slightly weaker than Paladins. Sentinels are distinguished by their reddish armor with a white emblem, while Paladins have more grayish armor with a yellow emblem.

They wear [Shoddy] armour (5% chance of [Standard]) and have weapons manufactured by Ancient.
