Aasimar Paragon (3.5e Racial Paragon Class)
From D&D Wiki
An aasimar is a human descendant of a celestial. An aasimar paragon is the embodiment of all that is good and noble, and full of light. While some aasimars might reject their heritage and become counterfeit agents serving the powers of darkness, a paragon chooses the path that best reflects the goals of his celestial ancestors.
An aasimar has no interest in adventuring for profit alone. However, he is quite likely to accept a quest for a noble cause, particularly to rid the world of some great evil.
An aasimar paragon does not necessarily see his attitude toward a deity or other celestial being as worship, but more like the love and respect due to a revered family elder. In any case, all aasimar paragons are highly conscious of their relationship with the celestial, and that relationship affects everything they do.
Virtually all aasimar paragons are raised among others of similar outlook and purpose. The vast majority multiclass as either paladins or clerics of a good deity. A notable minority find their calling as bards, and some aasimar paragons have been known to become sorcerers, monks, or druids. Other classes are virtually unknown.
An aasimar paragon has no tolerance for evil races such as orcs and drow and he will seek to redeem them at every opportunity. He likewise has little patience for creatures that choose to dwell in darkness, such as dwarves, but his antipathy stops short of violence. He views surface races, such as humans, elves, and halflings, as lost children in need of guidance.
An aasimar paragon has no use for rogues and others who sneak around in the shadow of darkness. He may share similar goals with some rangers, but their relationship is typically strained. He is most comfortable in the company of paladins, good clerics, and good bards who focus on skills of persuasion rather than stealth, but he can form a constructive relationship with just about anyone who desires the greater good.
