The Prime Directive is not just a set of rules. It is a philosophy, and a very correct one.
~ Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

Lawful Good is known as the "Saintly" or "Crusader" alignment. A Lawful Good character typically acts with compassion, and always with honor and a sense of duty. A Lawful Good nation would consist of a well-organized government that works for the benefit of its citizens. Lawful Good characters include righteous knights, paladins, and most dwarves. Lawful Good creatures include the noble golden dragons.

Lawful Good characters, especially paladins, may sometimes find themselves faced with the dilemma of whether to obey law or good when the two conflict—for example, upholding a sworn oath when it would lead innocents to come to harm—or conflicts between two orders, such as between their religious law and the law of the local ruler.

They are the moral opposite of Lawful Evil, the Law/Chaos opposite of Chaotic Good, and the complete opposite of Chaotic Evil.

Lawful Good characters can count as Pure Good if they are not extremists in their way of promoting good and if they don't display any corrupting quality overall. Stereotipically, they are seen as the most honorable characters, but this isn't necessarily right, as Neutral Good and Chaotic Good may definitely be honorable in their promotion of goodness as well.
