Justiciar of Tyr - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
As servants of the god of justice, priests of Tyr are expected to be paragons of law and order who embody the principles espoused by the Maimed God at all times. Justiciars are the very elite of Tyr's mortal servants, and they act as living embodiments of their god's portfolio. They battle lawlessness and injustice with the same fervor that paladins battle evil, neither asking nor giving quarter in their quest to bring perfect, utopian order to Faerûn. Some individual justiciars are permanently stationed in large cities with a strong Tyrran presence to serve as judges or magistrates. Others are assigned to travel frontier regions such as the North and establish law and civil order in the small towns that dot the wild lands of Faerûn. High-level justiciars sometimes travel to the planes of Chaos to strike directly against outsiders such as slaadi or demons.
Clerics and paladins make up the vast majority of justiciars, but a fair number come from the ranks of multiclass fighter/clerics, and a few were rangers before taking up the prestige class. Rogue/cleric justiciars are very rare, but not completely unknown. Multiclass monks, sorcerers, and wizards, however, are all but unheard of among the ranks of the justiciars. Because of alignment restrictions, barbarians, bards, and druids are never justiciars of Tyr.
Paladins of Tyr may freely multiclass as justiciars of Tyr.
