The moral dimension of alignment reflects a character's position with respect to pre-defined, absolute concepts of "good" and "evil". Evil is defined by sins of ''commision'', Neutral by sins of ''omission'', and Good by virtuous acts.
 
*''"Good"'' implies altruism, respect for life, and a concern for the dignity of sentient beings. Good characters make personal sacrifices to help others and to protect innocent life. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of self.

*''"Evil"'' implies hurting, oppressing, and killing innocents. Some evil creatures simply have no compassion for others and kill without qualms if doing so is convenient or profitable. Others actively pursue evil, killing for sport or out of duty to some evil deity or master.
