      FPBP. Any society need healers, specially lawful evils one where harsh sentences are common. Like in real life the executioners were famed to be some of the best at curing bone breaking and stuff like that.

      That's not neutral, unless you're preserving it for some kind of autistic balance

    Besides the obvious answer of "money," or the slightly less obvious answer of "social clout," healthy things are usually more useful.

    In a world filled with violence, you see the only way to restore balance is through healing.

    The world seems to be stuck perpetually in the same era and according to your studies of history the world went though massive changes far more often than they seem to happen now. For purely academic reasons, you want to figure out what is stopping these changes from happening. As far as you can tell, in eras long ago there was a cycle of peace and war, but you have been stuck in an era of war and destruction for far too long. Healing is your way of trying to bring about an era of peace so you might finally see what might come about after the era of swords and adventures.

    It might feel a little lawful good, but you don't actually CARE if it means more people might live, you are just bored of the stagnant setting and smashing dragons doesn't seem to be fixing the issue.

    Cultural power. Healers are often given higher regard in their communities, are given leeway that others won't get, get higher control over other people, are held in general esteem, and have avenues of soft-power that most other occupations couldn't dream of.

    If you're actually dedicated to Law, then a healthy population inherently has less problems in it than an unhealthy one. Bodies can be put back in order just like anything else.

    You didn't dedicate your life to healing people, you dedicated your life to the church of a divine being that grants magical abilities to their clergy. You just happened to get a choice between channeling positive or negative energy on top of that. Now tell me, why would a lawful neutral cleric choose healing living allies and harming undead enemies, as opposed to harming living allies and healing undead enemies?

    I can think of some chaotic neutral reasons to be a healer, and it's basically the same reasons any veteran MMO healer does the job. Because the idiots you work with aren't going to get anything done otherwise and you enjoy having the power to decide who lives or dies.

    >Civil
    It's a well-paying job that is in constant demand, and will always either increase in potency and effectiveness or decrease in difficulty and/or complexity.
    >Military
    Keeping soldiers on your side alive means they can go back out and fight later, and the more times you do this, the more likely your side is to win.
    >Adventurer
    It's a vital role in parties who will routinely encounter a wide variance of threats, and it's a trade no less valuable than something like lockpicking, where your inclusion will always keep you in high demand and justify a good cut of the bounties of adventures
    >Study/Sciences
    There are always going to be more things to potentially learn about the body through routine healing, and in a setting with or without magic, you'll find peers often willing to exchange knowledge and further the progress of perfecting the restorative arts.
    >Aristocracy/Nobility
    Being an elite healer might make you a servant of a higher caste, but you'll obviously have access to a vastly higher degree of necessity/urgency, and by perfecting your capacity to heal, you'll be granted far more freedoms and connections as a result, ensuring a more comfortable life on the whole
    >Vagabond/Wanderer
    Lone healing on the road can make you an oasis to a vast plurality of thirsty travelers, and if you're clever enough to carry other amenities such as food/drinks and reagents to make potions on the go, you can be a mobile marketplace in spaces that adventurers might otherwise die in life/death situations.

    It's really not hard to conceive of law-abiding neutral ways to be a healer.

    LN people have morals and live a disciplined life of purpose. They are pretty mechanical about it but they do. Duty of the said character is to heal people to and so on.

    But that is a LN (g) good tendencies character, a Javert is LN (e) or LE.

    I don't think OP understands alignment.

    Your alignment does not define what you want, only how you usually proceed to obtain it.

    A lawful healer would be strict about procedure (even to a point of cold precision), would follow tradition and be "by the book". He would have his equipment and tools clean and organized, appointments scheduled orderly and probably a very reliable medic journal, full of detailed reports and records.

    The reason why he chose to be a doctor is entirely personal, as it would be if he was a innkeeper.

    Your alignment can't tell who you are.

    None, because it's a shitty framework. Literally just a good/evil axis, and a wacky/unwacky axis. The more evil you are the less of a reason you have to be doing party adventures, and the more wacky you are the more you just irritate the other players. It's surprising anyone uses it as anything other than a player red flag.

    Because you have been ordered to do it. You arn't going to disobey an order by a superior, are you anon? That would be a chaotic act.
