|This article is about the paladin order. For the paladin subclass in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, see Subclasses - Goldpact Knights.|
The Goldpact Knights are an order of mercenary paladins who sell themselves for all sorts of defensive and offensive engagements. They emerged on the Pearl Coast a few hundred years ago and managed to survive the destruction of the dwarven nation that created them. Goldpact Knights are not especially brutal and are willing to shift direction based on the desires of their employers. As their name suggests, the Goldpact Knights believe payment forms a binding contract. They are known for being non-judgmental, professional, and impressively mirthless.
