(A) and his fighting for justice and protection from terrorists was steadfast,
> Not parallel

(B) and fighting for justice and protection from terrorists was steadfast, so that
> Not parallel; "so that" is not approriate here

(C) his fighting for justice and protection from terrorists steadfast, that
> Not parallel; wrong structure (it should be: his fighting for justice and protection from terrorists was steadfast)

(D) fighting for justice and protection from terrorists was so steadfast,
> Not parallel & we need THAT after the comma,

(E) so steadfast his fighting for justice and protection from terrorists, that
> best option without "was" (so steadfast was his fighting...)

Hope it helps!
