A chaotic good character acts as his conscience directs him with little regard for what others expect. He believes in goodness and right, but has little use for laws and regulations. He follows his own moral compass, which, although good, may not agree with that of society. A ranger who waylays the evil baron's tax collectors is chaotic good. Chaotic good combines a good heart with a free spirit.
This alignment is seen by some to be the most heroic, as it includes those who seek to benefit others (good) from outside the hierarchy of society (chaos), a common motif in literature. It also includes those compassionate individuals who exist within that hierarchy, but insist upon doing things their own way. Chaotic good characters tend to be strong individualists marked by kindness and benevolence.
The extreme of the chaotic good alignment is represented in Neverwinter Nights as a rating of "0" in law-chaos and "100" in good-evil. The alignment title is "rebel".
