The Benefactor[edit | edit source]
A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. As an example Jozan, a cleric who helps others according to their needs, is neutral good.
Neutral good is the alignment which means doing what is good without bias for or against order. These characters believe that a balance of forces is important, but that the concerns of law and chaos do not moderate the need for good. Since the universe is vast and contains many creatures striving for different goals, a determined pursuit of good will not upset the balance; it may even maintain it. If fostering good means supporting organized society, then that is what must be done. If good can only come about through the overthrow of existing social order, so be it. Social structure itself has no innate value to them, though if setting up a social structure can bring about good, they will do that too.
