My favorite paladin.(Yes , the sword looks like a bedpost with sashes but I like the rest of the picture) Juliana never gave in to the dark forces of evil, she died at the hands of another player. The wizard Tuar de Tuatha was having a personal crisis, feeling that at 16th level, he had nowhere else to go with his Magic career. He was drawn by a demon, into a plot to take over the world. He made a secret deal and then tried to gain the committment of some of the other party members that were easily conned. Then, he approached Juliana. He asked her to join him in his quest for world domination, and she said 'never!' (she knew evil was afoot) He then FIREBALLED her to within an inch of her life (one Hit point) and asked her again. Her reply was the same, and she drew her sword to attack him, and he fireballed her again to make sure she was truly dead. Juliana did not die in vain that night...Tuar could not deal with what he had done. He led the party to the demon and they slew him. Tuar fought for good from then on, and eventually died along side Ariel in the blinding light and fireballs.
