um, you completely ignored the "Why are there no Night Elf paladins" question, the reason is because they are all women, and you also only ever see a few, the most well known of which is Tyranda Whisperwind and you are wrong, run live stratholm, Timmy the cruel is a five year old, and about the closest thing to a baby undead you will get

Gender has nothing to do with paladinhood. Tyrande is also not a paladin, she's a High Priestess, which is an entirely separate class mechanic from priests, paladins, or any other such critter.Nelves technically don't have priests as they work in the game, since they don't believe in the loose conglomeration of ideals that is the Light. They have an actual, bona fide Goddess, Elune, so Blizz had to homogenize High Priestesses as they exist in lore into the priest class. Tyrande's 'class' in Warcraft III is actually closer to the hunter class we have today with a few magic abilities thrown in because she's awesome like that. Sentinels are more concerned with kicking butt than contemplating Puzzle Piece Jesus, and their religious culture reflects that.TL;DR: nelves don't have paladins because that's not how their religious or cultural systems roll. I'm sure there are a few nelves that believe in the Light and COULD become paladins, but for the sake of streamlining the class system, they decided to ignore the anomalies inherent in any race.

It's likely that there are no notable female paladins because the paladin organizations are chauvinistic and would disencourage women from rising in the ranks, but you'll see plenty of female paladins in the Scarlet Monastery and such.
