The Prime Directive is not just a set of rules. It is a philosophy, and a very correct one.
~ Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
I swore an oath. I cannot exert my will on the natural order of things. I cannot intervene.
~ The Watcher

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. Stereotipically, Lawful Good characters 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

Lawful Good characters can count as Pure Good as both archetypes can be identified through traits such as acts of kindness like saving lives or being pleasant with any other character. Unfortunately, not all Lawful Good characters are neccessarily considered Pure Good; often or rarely, a character may fall under the Lawful Good alignment but still possess some character traits like being Arrogant, Incompetent, Lethal, or Mischeivous and/or they may classify under categories such as Control Freaks, Egomaniacs, or Heroic Jerks. In such cases, these characters (regardless of being Lawful Good or not) CANNOT be considered Pure Good if they meet any of these criteria, even if they're called "pure of heart" in their own respective universes. However, there are exceptions and special cases to this rule that may qualify a character as being Pure Good; a character may possess character traits such as Vengeful, Wrathful, Dissociative, Dreaded, and though very rare, Nihilistic and/or they can classify under categories such as Cowards, Heroic Liars, Heroic Criminals, and Monarchs.
