Defender of Sealtiel - Exalted Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Sealtiel is the celestial paragon who serves as patron of defenders - those who protect the weak from the depredations of the strong, fight off the forces of evil when they assault the good, and defend the ideals of goodness and truth from evil deception and lies. His mortal champions are the defenders of Sealtiel, a knightly order sworn to uphold those ideals. While the fists of Raziel take the fight against evil onto evil's home ground, the defenders of Sealtiel remain at home, guarding against evil's counterassault.
Most defenders of Sealtiel are paladins, fighters, and rangers. Occasionally clerics or monks (often multiclass cleric/fighters or the like) adopt the class as well, and even more rarely fighter/rogues take up Sealtiel's cause. Arcane spellcasters rarely find the class appealing.
The wandering life of an adventurer does not easily suit most defenders of Sealtiel, who prefer to stay in civilized regions to protect people. Sometimes, however, a defender of Sealtel takes on the role of a bodyguard for an important or holy person, and travels with that person wherever necessity leads. Player character defenders could easily fall into that category, or feature prominently in a campaign that revolved around the defense of a city or citadel. NPC defenders are usually found in sedentary roles such as these.
