Lesser Paragon[edit]

The little brother to the paragon template, lesser paragons are elites among their kind.

Paragons are supremely powerful examples of their kind, supermen among themselves. Lesser paragons are their little brother. They aren't as amazing or unique, but they are still elite among their kind.
