Tell me /tg/ what does it mean to be a Paladin? I'm not talking about what the definition of a Paladin is, but WHO a Paladin is. In your mind, what is it that really makes an individual worthy of the title of Paladin?

A TRUE Paladin?
Not retard edgy child spouting nonsense and moralfaggotry?

Work for the greater good. Do even evil for greater good. Sacrifice everything for greater good, even your family, love and life.
That is paladin.

So basically, a good antagonist.

You must not allow anything against your beliefs to exist, not even your friends. If someone so much as steals a french fry and you see them do it, you have to call them on it and probably kill them. Always be extremely haughty and act as if you're better than everyone else because, hell, you are, you're a Paladin and every other god that isn't the one you worship had better get out of your way.

Oh, and it's okay to fuck demons as long as you do it to get information from them and then kill them. Enjoy.

I like my Paladins to be fanatically devoted to their cause/deity, brutally smiting those who get in their way or threaten their cause.

That they all fall. Every single fucking paladin ever faced with a non-binary choice falls.

Well, the term was originally used to refer to a group sometimes called "The Twelve Peers", the foremost warriors of the court of Charlemagne.
Mind you, their exploits are largely fictitious, representing Christian martial dominance over the Saracen hordes.

In summary:
A paladin knows that one day he will die, or fall, or simply fail to protect an innocent.
He knows this, but until that day he will give his all to make THIS day better.

Flight of the Dragons wasn't a terrible movie, but it did suffer from a bit of corny writing.

That said, I find myself a bit torn between PALADIN, AWW YEAH and that scene of HUMANITY, FUCK YEAH when the scientist goes ballistic on the villain and starts shouting the various disciplines of science at him.
