The Rebel[edit | edit source]
A chaotic good character acts as his conscience directs him with little regard for what others expect of him. He makes his own way, but he's kind and benevolent. He believes in goodness and right but has little use for laws and regulations. He hates it when people try to intimidate others and tell them what to do. He follows his own moral compass, which, although good, may not agree with that of society. As an example Soverliss, a ranger who waylays the evil baron's tax collectors, is chaotic good. Chaotic good combines a good heart with a free spirit.
Chaotic good characters are strong indivualists marked by a streak of kindness and benevolence. They have no use for people who "try to push folk around and tell them what to do." A brave frontiersman forever moving on as settlers follow in his wake is an example of a chaotic good character.
Chaotic good characters can often be found tearing down dictatorial (usually Lawful evil) governments, ending slavery or leading slave rebellions, fighting for equality and the rights of sentient creatures, standing up for the oppressed or even stealing children from an orphanage to take them to a mystical jungle Neverland.
