For me if the other players are going to dabble into my character background, something as a DM that I strongly discourage for players to do to each other at my table, then I'd have fun dabbling in their's. I'd make an Inquisitor of Kord as my next character, encourage the Paladin/ Cleric to not be so cowardly. An example is I'd criticized the Paladin for not insisting he challenge the lizard king reminding him that he is the Holy Warrior of a diety with the Dogma "The strong and fit should lead the weaker. Bravery is the greatest quality in any ruler. Scorn cowardice." Evenutally the Paladin will try to solo something too tough and either die or prove to be a coward.
