Favourite Tropes #5: Lawful Good
When I play Dungeons and Dragons this is one of the usual alignments I go for with my characters. This is the sort of alignment that is generally given to the Shiniest of Good People, since it’s hard to both be good and hold yourself to a strong code of ethics and standards simultaneously. Even when they slip, they still get back up there and keep trying.
All of them are strong believers in the concept of Justice and that nobody is above the law, not even themselves – in one above case, they are the law. They are strong people and not above lamping you one if you offend their values, and all have some ability to back up their strength of conscience and will, be it magical or physical power.
