Its called a challenge for a reason. If I wanted another build that "wins at Pathfinder," I'd have searched the threads for the uber leet haxors builds that I'm sure you contribute to.
But that's not what I wanted. I had an assumption, and I guess maybe a misguided one at that, that Pathfinder forum users had an imagination.
Its called a challenge for a reason. Right there in the title.
So, minoritarian and the rest of the forum users, I challenge you to build a holy vindicator with those requirements. If you choose not to, fine, move along.
I don't understand why the specific lvl requirements. It's almost like you are shoe horning the build, it's not quite a challenge... Idk...
I would create a deity who has nodachi as a favored weapon, and is LG or LN so I can TWF with nodachi and unarmed strike (with dragon style) so I can get 1.5 str for both. Pick up a wand of lead blades from ranger, and the extra feats from fighter to make it dangerous.
Mostly the question is...what do you do with all those feats?
Haha, Byrd...I figured your nodachi build would come up.
Ranger makes it nice to get TWF without the 15 dex requirement. Another build (without nodachi, I mean) could also stay unarmed, ala Captain Andoran. Going this route allows a Dragon Style/Crane Style build, assuming your monk levels are MoMS.
I would make an offensive channeler build that may use ranger monk OR fighter lvls, but not all of them. I'd take advantage of the channel smite feat along with paladin smite to do some serious carnage. At least 5 lvls of paladin to get the +10 dmg vs super evil, and channel smite to add a ton of d6's to that dmg with alignment channel. The shield buff to AC is nice, but you don't even have to have the shield ready to take advantage of it.
Or I would take two lvls of MoMS for crane and snake style then 3lvls of cleric. Light armor with the brawling property, AoMF, and shield bash and unarmed strike it out with the same channel smite, and crush anyone who misses me in melee.

Make it a Cleric of Urgathoa, and channel smite with a Shaken effect (courtesy of the Urgathoa only feat: Shatter Resolve) delivered on the end of a Scythe!
Take the Leadership feat, give your cohort Butterfly's Sting, Two Weapon Fighting, and Improved Critical (or buy him Keen) Kukri's. Now, whenever he confirms a critical hit he can turn it into a normal hit but make your next attack a critical, if it hits. That will be a x4 (with your channelled energy, plus shaken) damage.
