About the Story
The country of Greenland, after losing the war to the Imperial Army, were in agony and despair for what will the future bring them. They had hired mercenaries to help them during the war and now they’ve come back to collect their reward while the country were still picking up their pieces of their broken dreams.
By that time, the King has passed away and his heir was still too young to take up on the throne. After hearing the news of the King’s death the mercenaries decided to take over the throne and rule in his place. But there was an obstacle in their way... The Oracle!
Now the chapters are coming regularly, I assume its opportune time to create a thread for this series. Its one of the better manhwa I started reading recently. The action/fighting fans should love it.

I'm liking this series a good bit so far. I especially LOVE the art style.
Can't figure out whose going to be the main character though. It looked like it was going to be the guy in the first few chapters and then it entirely switched gears to a new guy entirely, with a new story.
The basic elements of this series(action, humor, characters, and art) are all awesome but the overall plot still seems like one big mystery. I still have no idea what "Paladin" is even going to be about.

I initially thought that the first guy we saw was the main character as well. Then it turned out it was the other guy next him. It was interesting how the author / artist pulled that off. The main character is the guy we saw in the first chapter, well the guy with the scar on his face (I forget his name).
The story seems to focus on several things but tie into the main character at some point.
At first, I thought the 1st main character was a male. But it turned out she was a lady dressed like a male. Even when they do flashback, she looks like a guy until her cleavage was shown.
That female tomboy is definitely a Paladin, inherited from her protector in the flashback.
And it appears the flashbacks in this series is very well executed.
I like how religion is used with a pretense of a prophet, the female Oracle.
Reminds me of the Fire Emblem game for some weird reason. This could be easily considered a classic, right?
If it were published in shounen jump (black & white art of course) do you think it would do well?
well i read paladin, 14chapters. I still don't get what's the main plot, but that manhwa is good and have lots of potential. i'm looking forward for what will happen.
Chapters 15-16 are out.

Paladin chapters 19 & 20 are out from eg scans.
I liking the manhwa so far, but the plot is still confuse... How is the countries after the war or the objetive of the protagonist....
The one interesting things about the main character is - his scared beast is out of power and descends to the earth. I wonder if that means that he is nearing his end time as if the beast dies, the host will as well.
The objective of the protagonist has not been revealed yet, maybe the raws have.
I've also been wondering his time is ending... Maybe he wants to do something before he dies. The smaller countries of the alliance that lost seems to be still finding themselfs...
Plot is simple, as explained by Charlie. I am little confused about the recent chapters. I assume there are separate events are being shown simultaneously. A few more chapters and the story will shape up nicely. So far, I am liking this manhwa.
True indeed. I was just wondering, if we are going to see more than one main characters?
If the story continues to branch into several different stories at once, then we'll probably have more than one main character.
Though at this point, I don't want to see that happen and I Just want to know more about Karon.
Paladin chapter 23 has been sometime from eg scans.
