Oath of Beauty

Paladins who have taken an Oath of Beauty, has made a holy vow to protect those who embody physical perfection.

Beautiful creatures should always be held in the highest regard, for their beauty is a gift from the gods. Likewise, those who have monstrous appearances deserve no mercy, as their deformities have marked them as wicked and evil .

Tenets of Beauty

The tenets of the Oath dictates that a paladin has vowed to protect and defend natural beauty in any shape it might take.

Blessing of Grace. Physical beauty is a sign of good will from the gods and tell of their devotion to the subject in question.

Serve Through Artistry. One should always attempt to imbue the world with more beauty. Through dance, music, or other artistry, art should always be created and protected.

Protect True Beauty. Those who create and possess true beauty are touched by the gods. They are deemed worthy of praise and devotion and should be protected, and those who scheme behind illusions should be brought down.

Destruction of the Grotesque. The ugly and the monstrous should be vanquished, for they blemish the beauty of the world and seek to swallow their divinity.
