A Paladin of Eloele could be flashy and notorious and highly visible. Think
of a master trickster or daring thief (I think a Paladin of Eloele would
have to be a Rogue). This person could still have a hidden identity but a
high profile. With every feat (attributed to the glory of Eloele, of
course) they would be demonstrating the advantages of following Eloele's and
currying her favor.

This brings up some larger issues about AD&D in general and classes
specifically. They are too structured. I haven't used S&P but I would
think that those rules go some way in addressing how to have a unique
character such as a Paladin of Eloele who is a Rogue and not a fighter.

I'm not too much into this Paladin thread, but I do have some opinions
on Paladins of Eleole. Or rather the lack of such.. I beleive the whole
concept of Paladin is he is supposed to be "flashy" in some way, or
rather attract attention to himself. Whatever a paladin really is he is
supposed to bring people under his God's faith with sword or some other
skill, but the whole point is people are SUPPOSED to notice him (or her
BTW). And all this leads to my point...a theif, master or not is not
supposed to attract attention to himself, rather the opposite. After all
Eleole temples are hidden (well almost at least). She is after all the
Goddess of Night, i.e. skulking around in the shadows.
