When, why and how would this Virtue be worth taking? Stubborn is nice, but it seems like the points cost and the penalties are far too high.
It's good to know I'm not the only one to look in the book and think how rediculously overpriced this is... especially if it tosses the poor chap OUT of his unit
"The Lady Demands"
Paladin - 120
Virtue of the Penitent, Lance, Shield, Warhorse
One man tar-pit/counter-charger - for when your opponent's getting too close to your peasant bowmen and trebuchets. Spends most his days hanging out with some filthy, unshaven peasants, providing them with high leadership via Peasant's Duty. When an enemy unit gets close to the Peasants, he charges them, hopefully keeping them busy for a few turns. Could also make this guy the BSB.
What do you think?

You know... That sounds like a Paladin worth playing around with, I'm glad you took the effort to make that virtue worth taking (or try to atleast). I think I may have to find a play test home for him and oust my Empathy guy for a game or two
"The Lady Demands"
He's a one man, two wound single model tar pit. Even a smallish unit should be able to take him down with relative ease.
Why would you want to throw away your BSB that far away from the main war line? He's also, as you said, not expected to survive more than a couple of turns - handing your enemy 320 VP right away. Probably not a good idea to go into a battle expecting to be that far down before the game even begins.
If he is just a paladi (not the BS given an enchanted shield, he becomes a 1+ save tar-pit. Add in a couple of additional items and you could have a character that is capable of extending a reasonable leadership to poor quality troops and can defend his commoner friends from nastier enemy units coming to get them.
That way your obscenely cheap bowmen will stick around, and your very cheap Men-At-Arms can be used to help give a nice static CR.
I still think he has potential because the majority of the time, he'll be up against a 5 man fast cavalry or flyer type-unit - those mage and war machine hunting units. He should have no problem against those kinds of units (unless they're, for example, a High Elf Lord on a Dragon).
