[Alignment help] Principled

Principled characters value life and freedom above all else.  They will strive 
to protect all people, especially those who are not able to protect themselves.
When possible they will try to stop those who commit evil acts by capturing and 
making them pay their debt to society.  

Principled characters try with all their might to follow and uphold the laws
of the lands.  Most laws were created to help the helpless and were likely 
placed there by those of a principled or dogmatic mindset.  Laws that promote
evil will not be upheld by a principled character, but a principled character 
will also not willingly reside in such an environment.

Principled characters try to avoid killing, but do not necessarily shy away 
from lethal force in the face of unrepentent evil.
