Knights (騎士, Kishi) are members of the Chivalric Order mainly Humans or Human-Hybrids tasked with killing Devils, Fallen Angels, Vampires, Demonic Beasts, and Monsters who can potentially harm Humans.
The title [Knight] was granted to humans who were charged with the task of protecting both the kingdom and its monarch along with other nobles from rival kingdoms; and in return, they were all paid for their loyalty and service with either money or land. The children of Knights were kept in the castle and raised by their caretakers until the age of seven before beginning their training to become a Knight themselves. During the era of the well-known [King of Knights] Arthur Pendragon, and the [Legendary Knight], Sir Lancelot and the Knights of the Round Table.
During wars and small battles against armies that varied from demonic creatures and even against other humans who wished for the end of Camelot, most of them were also assisted by Magicians like Merlin. From their extensive training and weaponry, along with their resistance to magic, they became capable of fighting against beings like High-Class Devils.
In that era, the strongest of them was Sir Lancelot, a fully realized Knight, who would normally be seen fighting in the frontlines against armies by himself armed with both his demonic and holy swords that soon earned him the title as a God of War. It was even rumored that Sir Lancelot was capable of fighting evenly against Ultimate-Class Devils.
Powers & AbilitiesEdit
The moment they reach the age of 7, the children who chose to become Knight go through rigorous training to fight beings like High-Class Devils and Fallen Angels. While Knights are incapable of matching them when it comes to demonic power or magic, they instead train to be capable of resisting their demonic powers with their own bodies. For many years, they train to perfect their combat and weapons skills, allowing them to fight against opponents no matter how numerous and became capable of deflecting both magic and demonic attack.
Amongst their ranks there exists Knights who have powers on par or stronger than High-Class Devils known as the six Arch-Knight. Amongst the Chivalric Order, there are Knights who possess incredible strength that can only be called monstrous; they are considered to be True Knights capable of fighting against Ultimate-Class Devils. And the one who carries the potential to fight against one of the Four Great Satan is then given the title of Head Paladin
There are some Knight who train themselves to the point where they can tap into their own Aura and are able to wear it around their bodies to increase their attack, speed, and defense (mainly against magic). Over the years, there have been Knights who developed many ways of utilizing their auras in combat against beings of the supernatural; most of them being among the Paladins.
These techniques are used by them releasing their "aura" and/or "ki" internally to strengthen their physical or internal bodies, to replenish their stamina or increase the bodies' regeneration. Has shown by Elaine who is a master of her own aura, if one can master their aura then it is possible for them to maintain their youthful looks by channeling their "aura" or "ki" internally. Internal Techniques are important in becoming a Paladin.
Amongst the most talented of Knights, there are some who can make specific adjustments to their aura and use a unique weapon as a medium to develop their own unique technique.
