First draft of the character below. None of this is set-in stone. We can tweak to get Lannax to be the way you pictured him or even go back to the drawing board if this doesn't work for you.
My random notes to start with in making the character (might explain my thought process).
Doesn’t know about architecture, but knows history and heraldry. Also has some knowledge of magic. Blending in with a crowd - Sleight of hand + Depends on reflexes for defense + Reading people++ Lying + Persuading + Project Confidence+ Perception ++ Iron Mind Defense (some mental defense) Time manipulation Enchance speed, temporal slash, enhanced speed, healing Dispel - Arcane Strike (magically empowered blade) + Sense Magic / Teleport objects to himself, short teleport Banish - Protective magic – Enlarge person spell++
Notes: High charisma, High perception (maybe high wisdom) High Dex Medium or light armor? Does some sort of time magic, but not very good at abjuration/dispelling effects. Maybe your spellcasting ability is different than charisma. (Maybe intelligence?) So buffs and spells that don’t depend on the ability work fine for you, but things like dispel magic where you have to roll your ability fail? If we make your casting stat bad, we might need to balance out things to help you in other areas. Not stealthy, but otherwise dexterous?

Class Abilities Start with Paladin as Base (HP, anything I missed), Modify as follows:
Lay on Hands = Same Mechanically, but described is turning back time to do the healing. Divine Sense = Same. Fighting Style = Same. Dueling? Spellcasting = Same progression, but different spell list and intelligence is your spellcasting ability. Divine Smite = Temporal Slash Divine Health = Cut. We’ll replace with something else, but doesn’t really make sense and disease doesn’t really come up. Maybe immune to aging instead? Extra Attack= Same. Aura of Protection = Hmm, I would be okay with keeping this the same and reskin it as altering space/time to help protect your allies. Alternately, you could give people advantage on any save against ongoing effects instead. Aura of Courage = Maybe change for something else? How about action boost, once per short rest use your bonus action to grant an ally within 10 feet of you an extra action they take immediately. Very time control based and feels like a nice buff to be able to throw out. Up to you if you’d rather have aura of courage.
Alternate Spell List (There are probably other spells that fit thematically with the space/time magic thing, so let me know if there are other things you think should be on here) 1st- Bane, Dissonant Whispers, Divine Favor, Earth Tremor, Expeditious Retreat, Feather Fall, Heroism, Identify, Longstrider, Shield of Faith 2nd- Augury, Blur, Enlarge/Reduce, Enhance Ability, Misty Step 3rd- Blink, Dispel Magic, Haste, Slow, Sending,
Oath = Oath of the Timekeeper
Two "Oath" Abilities
3rd level abilities Circle of Recall- Recall Items (Custom, the item teleportation thing you used for your equipment). Items prepared beforehand can be call to your location from up to 10 miles away. A maximum of 100 lbs of equipment can be transported this way. You can use this ability once per short or long rest.
Speed increased +10 ft per round.
7th level ability Temporal Surge – Action Surge, like the fighter ability.
