This crusader believed her destiny to be as a sword and shield against the cancer of evil.
PCs may run across or even be rescued by a wayward crusader, and she doesn’t hesitate to enlist them in her cause. For low-level PCs she can serve as a powerful ally and mentor, while companions who surpass her in power could even claim her crusade for their own.
