Solace was born 2 months after her father's death. Her mother found solace in her pregnancy and child in the wake of her husband's death and thus named her child appropriately.

Her mother was a human ranger and follower of Erastil who had one day come upon a near fatally wounded male orc. Despite how their two races often got along, her mother, Sariah, couldn't find it in her heart to finish off the poor wounded orc. Instead, much to the orc's surprise, she chose to nurse him back to health while taking shelter in a nearby cave.

As what often happens in such situations, the patient, Orn, soon fell in love with his nurse, vowing to stay with her and protect her even after was fully recovered from his wounds. After time, Sariah begin developing feeling of her own for Orn and the two began to travel together and a year after they first met, they chose to marry. Another year after that and Sariah announced her pregnancy and the two began looking for a likely settlement to stay in until their child would be born and be old enough to travel with them.

Sadly, a group of hunters came upon Orn while he was out hunting for food for his family and they mistook him for a threat to their village, a scout for a larger army. The humans killed him without even bothering to ask who he was or what he was doing. Sariah found out about Orn's death when the hunters brought his body back to the village, boasting about how they had saved it from evil orcs.

Disgusted and broken-hearted by their actions, Sariah fled with her newborn daughter back to her home village of Phaendar where she still had family and friends living there. Her hope was that they would take and her daughter in without discriminating against her for her mixed heritage.

So it was that Solace grew up on the family farm at Phaendar alongside her cousins and family friends. As she grew older, Solace would travel into the forest more and more often with her mother, learning the ways of the forest and making regular trips with her to the shrine at Riverwood and taking lessons from the clerics there, including her stepfather Lorne.

Since Solace arrived at the village as a baby born to a woman native to it, she was more accepted there than if she had arrived full grown. It's harder to fear someone you've known since they were in swaddling clothes. She did have her fair share of childhood fights of course, but no more than any other child her age. The only real difference was the lack of males willing to romance her when she reached adulthood.

List of NPCs

Ones from you list that Solace would know of/be friends with:
- Abby the Green, as a retired ranger she is most likely friends to both Sariah and Solace.
- Noelan and Rhyna, as clerics at the Riverwood Shrine, Solace would have seen them quite often and even taken lessons from them when available.
- Sarae Nott, being close in age, Solace and Sarae often played together as children. Though no longer as close as they once were, they are still friends.

Class Features:

All of the following are class features of the paladin.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Paladins are proficient with all simple and martial weapons, with all types of armor (heavy, medium, and light), and with shields (except tower shields).

Aura of Good (Ex): The power of a paladin's aura of good (see the detect good spell) is equal to her paladin level.

Detect Evil (Sp): At will, a paladin can use detect evil, as the spell. A paladin can, as a move action, concentrate on a single item or individual within 60 feet and determine if it is evil, learning the strength of its aura as if having studied it for 3 rounds. While focusing on one individual or object, the paladin does not detect evil in any other object or individual within range.

Smite Evil (Su): Once per day, a paladin can call out to the powers of good to aid her in her struggle against evil. As a swift action, the paladin chooses one target within sight to smite. If this target is evil, the paladin adds her Charisma bonus (if any) to her attack rolls and adds her paladin level to all damage rolls made against the target of her smite. If the target of smite evil is an outsider with the evil subtype, an evil-aligned dragon, or an undead creature, the bonus to damage on the first successful attack increases to 2 points of damage per level the paladin possesses. Regardless of the target, smite evil attacks automatically bypass any DR the creature might possess.

In addition, while smite evil is in effect, the paladin gains a deflection bonus equal to her Charisma modifier (if any) to her AC against attacks made by the target of the smite. If the paladin targets a creature that is not evil, the smite is wasted with no effect.

The smite evil effect remains until the target of the smite is dead or the next time the paladin rests and regains her uses of this ability. At 4th level, and at every three levels thereafter, the paladin may smite evil one additional time per day, as indicated on Table: Paladin, to a maximum of seven times per day at 19th level.

Divine Grace (Su)

At 2nd level, a paladin gains a bonus equal to her Charisma bonus (if any) on all Saving Throws.

Lay On Hands (Su)

Beginning at 2nd level, a paladin can heal wounds (her own or those of others) by touch. Each day she can use this ability a number of times equal to 1/2 her paladin level plus her Charisma modifier. With one use of this ability, a paladin can heal 1d6 hit points of damage for every two paladin levels she possesses. Using this ability is a standard action, unless the paladin targets herself, in which case it is a swift action. Despite the name of this ability, a paladin only needs one free hand to use this ability.

Alternatively, a paladin can use this healing power to deal damage to undead creatures, dealing 1d6 points of damage for every two levels the paladin possesses. Using lay on hands in this way requires a successful melee touch attack and doesn’t provoke an attack of opportunity. Undead do not receive a saving throw against this damage.
Aura of Courage (Su)

At 3rd level, a paladin is immune to fear (magical or otherwise). Each ally within 10 feet of her gains a +4 morale bonus on saving throws against fear effects. This ability functions only while the paladin is conscious, not if she is unconscious or dead.
Divine Health (Ex)

At 3rd level, a paladin is immune to all diseases, including supernatural and magical diseases, including mummy rot.

Holy Guide Archetype

A holy guide believes that it’s his sacred calling to clear the roads of bandits between towns as well as to escort travelers to safety. He must enforce the rule of law in the wilderness and help those that cannot defend themselves against the many dangers of the area.

Class Skills: A holy guide gains Knowledge (geography) and Survival as class skills.
Favored Terrain: Forrest

At 3rd level, a holy guide chooses a favored terrain from the ranger favored terrains table. This otherwise functions like the ranger ability of the same name.

This ability replaces the mercy gained at 3rd level. Every time a holy guide would be able to select another mercy, he can instead select another favored terrain and increase his bonuses for one existing favored terrain, just like a ranger.
Teamwork Feat (Ex)

At 6th level, a holy guide gains a teamwork feat as a bonus feat. He must meet the prerequisites for this feat. As a standard action, He can expend one use of smite evil to grant this feat to all allies within 30 feet who can see and hear him. Allies retain the use of this bonus feat for 3 rounds plus 1 round for every 2 levels the holy guide possesses. Allies do not need to meet the prerequisites of this bonus feat. Evil creatures do not gain the benefit of this teamwork feat, even if the paladin considers them allies.

This ability replaces the mercy gained at 6th level.

Note to self on Vigor and Wounds:

Healing Wound and Vigor Points

Healing wound and vigor points happens differently even if the effect healing them is the same. Wound points are always harder to heal than vigor points.

Healing Spells and Effects: Spells such as Heal CLW, Cleric's Channeling, and Paladins Lay on Hands. The creature casting the spell or effect must choose if it wants to heal wound or vigor points at the time of use. If vigor points are chosen then you heal a number of vigor points equal to the number of hit points you would have gained. If wound points are chosen then you regain one wound point per die of healing or per caster level for spells such as Heal.

Rest: When resting, creatures regain vigor points equal to their character level plus con modifier. Healing wound points while resting is similar to regaining ability score points and so a creature can regain either a wound point or one ability score point. For situations such as long term care with the heal skill, you heal vigor points twice as fast for 8 hours, or fur times as fast for a full day and you heal wound points as you would heal ability score points.

Restoration and Similar Effects: Restoration can heal wound points as it would ability score damage.

Dealing Damage

You deal damage to vigor points as you would regular hit points. Once all of a creatures vigor points are gone then they begin to lose wound points as they would hit points. Some instances allow you to attack wound points directly however.

Critical Hits: A critical hit deals an amount of wound points in damage equal to its critical multiplier on top of any other damage the creature takes from the hit.

Negative Energy Damage: A creature that casts a spell or effect causing negative energy damage such a inflict light wounds or channeling negative energy, can attack wound points directly at a rate of 1 wound point per die of the effect.

Significant Damage: For every 15 hit points of damage sustained from a single attack, a creature takes 1 wound point in damage.

Other Stuff

Temporary Hit points become temporary Vigor points

Non-Lethal damage is keyed to vigor points. So if non-lethal damage exceeds total vigor points you fall unconscious.

Spell effects that have a hit point trigger such at Disintegrate trigger upon the target receiving the wounded condition. Spells like Harm function off of the wound threshold.
