I feel like I probably should've started this whole "Paladin Playlist" thing with this song. "Soldiers" by OTHERWISE is what I use for my base theme. When I need to think of the Paladins in general, Soldiers. Character doing something heroic that doesn't otherwise fit the music I have queued up? Soldiers. Need to psyche myself up for a brave moment filled with combat and self sacrifice? Soldiers.
The song has a beautiful cadence, a strong feel, and just puts me in the mood to think about the men and women of the Paladin Order that put on the cassock and go to work. Thankless jobs that the public will never know about. Constant fear of losing those closest to you. Always putting your life on the line. "Soldiers" just hits everything I need when it comes to The Paladin and (fingers crossed) if this series was ever turned into a TV show or movie, this is the song I'd start it off with.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
