A lawful good character has the commitment and discipline to oppose and fight evil relentlessly. She tells the truth, keeps her word, and speaks out against injustice. A lawful good character hates to see the guilty go unpunished. A paladin who fights evil without mercy and who protects the innocent without hesitation is lawful good. Lawful good emphasizes honor and compassion.

This alignment is seen by some to be the most noble, as it promotes the interests both of individuals (good) and of society (law). (It can also be the most trying, as these interests are sometimes in conflict.) It is the alignment of paladins and many traditional heroes, combining justice and compassion.

The extreme of the lawful good alignment is represented in Neverwinter Nights as a rating of "100" in both law-chaos and good-evil. The alignment title is "crusader".
