No one rolls paladins because of this "Cecil", they join us because of our fabulous hair.
I remember Cecil vaguely. If, however, I have to name the Square character that inspired me to become a paladin then I have to say Duran of Seiken Densetu (the best 16 bit RPG in my opinion). Light Flash Blade / Shining Sword = Holy Wrath.
I have always liked Paladins. The idea of them, holy warriors who can support their troops with divine magic, etc. I played one in Diablo II, NWN, etc. Only made sense to keep going in WoW
I prefer Celes Chere from FFVI. She was pretty awesome. Since everyone was able to learn all magic she was more like a mage in plate but still is the closest thing to a pally in that game.
Now that i think about it Agrias was the best paladin out of all the games I played. I didnt play 12 or X-2 though.
