Templars are paladins of a given god who specialize in killing mages.
If a templar ever engages in an act directly contrary to their deity’s alignment, they lose their powers completely and irrevocably. No deed or magic can ever restore them. The templar’s class is thereafter “fighter”, and his class benefits change accordingly. If the templar is enchanted or controlled by magic when he does so, than he loses his powers only temporarily, and must atone by means of a dangerous quest or mission. He gains no experience prior to or during the course of this mission, and regains his standing as a templar only after the completion of the mission.
