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 originally given the task of protecting both their kingdom and monarch along with their nobles from rival kingdoms; and in returned, they were paid for their loyalty and service with either money or land. The children of Knights were kept in castles and was raised by their caretakers until the age of seven before they began their training to become Knights just like their parent. During the time period of the Knights of the Round Table, to be more specific: Arthur Pendragon, the [King of Knight], Sir Lancelot, the [Knight of the Lake], and Sir Gawaine, the [Knight of the Sun].
The three of them were Knights who were always on the front-line fighting against demonic beasts, evil magicians, and even rogue knights who wished for the end of Camelot. These Knights of Camelot were normally assisted by Magicians like Merlin Ambrosius. Because of their extensive physical training, combat training and weaponry, along with their resistance when it came to magic-attacks; they became capable of fighting against beings such as the High-Class Devils.
In the same era, the strongest Knight aside from King Arthur and Sir Gawaine, was Sir Lancelot, a fully realized Knight normally seen fighting on the frontlines against armies wielding both his holy and demon sword; and his combat strength that earned him the title God of War. It was rumored that Sir Lancelot could fight even against an Ultimate-Class or even Satan-Class Devil.
Powers & AbilitiesEdit
As per tradition, the moment a child turns the age of 7, those who makes the choice of being a Knight go through rigorous physical training in order to fight beings like High-Class Devils and Fallen Angels. Due to some of them being incapable of matching them when it comes to either demonic power or magic, they instead train their bodies to resist both magical and demonic attack. Most Knights display enhanced physical capabilities that put them near the same level as Mid-Class Devils.
Most Knights learn to tap into their own Aura the manifestation of their spirit and are able to wear it around their bodies resulting in an increase in their physical strength, defense (and their magic resistance), and speed. Over the years there have been Knights who developed many ways to utilize their aura in combat when they are faced with supernatural entities; most of them being Paladins who possess much higher aura-capacity.
There are a variety of techniques used by Knights, which allows them to reinforce physical or internal bodies; an example of this allows them to replenish their stamina or increase their bodies' regenerative abilities. And as soon shown by the current Head Paladin, Elaine Du Lac, if one master their internal ki then it could be possible for one to maintain their youthful looks.
These are a variety of techniques used by Knight, which allows them to unleash their aura as an energy-based blast.
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.
