Protector - Spiritual Powers - Tier 1
Protectors are a special kind of holy warriors. They are often charged with safeguarding the life of a Priest and often are tasked with defending the defenseless. Unlike other "fighter" types, a Protector is primarily a defensive warrior. A Protector draws danger to himself and away from others. A Protector's magic is also primarily defensive (such as recovering hit points or transferring health to others). Unlike Paladins, Protectors are permitted to walk (a bit) on the dark side if the end result is that the Protectorate's life is defended and saved. They are servants of the light, however, and their calling is one of service and protection. Moreover, they will not knowingly protect someone of evil alignment (unless it is to make sure they stay alive to stand trial). Protectors have a limited ability to affect Undead. Like Constructs, the only way to make sure that a Protector stays down is to utterly destroy him. Like Priests and Paladins, a Protector draws upon the power of the Planes of Light and Radiance as well as deities of good alignment.
