Nobody is perfect, and Nale knows this--but he has worse days than others. It's not so much the law, as willingness to follow a personal code, that Nale is most interested in. He's also more harsh with people once they join the order than before.

When Skybreakers are about to decide to follow Dawnsingers. Why now? Why not before?

Brandon Sanderson

He would claim to be, in the context of this discussion, Lawful Neutral.
