Merciless Crusader (Paladin/Inquisitor)

A paladin is the quintessential champion against all that is evil. However, some choose to focus their wrath upon demons, devils, daemons, and other evil outsiders. The merciless crusader is constantly on the lookout for malicious fiendish insurgence into the world, and when found, faces it with swift and unwavering defiance. Their divine judgment and other god-granted powers enable merciless crusaders to recognize the signs of outsider manipulation and possession and stand toe-to-toe with these evil fiendish entities.

Righteous Judgment (Su): At 1st level, a merciless crusader gains the inquisitor’s judgment ability, but it only functions against evil creatures. If the merciless crusader targets a creature that is not evil, the judgment is wasted with no effect. This ability replaces smite evil.
