This character references some elements of the Eberron setting, but uses no rules from those books. The Divine Might feat appears in Complete Warrior.
Kyle d'Ferriss is a successful and well-respected Sentinel Marshal, a sort of fantasy Interpol agent who has the authority to cross national borders in the pursuit of his quarry. He is intended to present a contrary view to the normal perception of paladins as priggish, straight-laced, and fanatical idiots. While Kyle's dedication to the precepts of law, order, and good are unwavering, he is not easily swayed by rumor or gossip and he has learned to judge people by what they do rather than what they appear to be. He is calm, moderate in his tastes, and soft-spoken. If you play him like a D&D version of Jason Bourne, you will not be far off.
A record of success has earned Kyle a bit of a promotion, to an ambassadorial post in a large, dangerous city. It is thought his ability to sense evil at work, combined with his vigilance and the high respect in which the guards hold him, will all help to make him effective at his post. Inwardly, however, he is determined to use his post to work good in the city on a large scale.
