Knight Errant

A Knight Errant is an infrequently appearing suit of animated armor.

Characteristics[edit]

Given mobility by sheer malevolence, Knight Errants are blue bruisers in the service of the Dragonlord. Despite their similarities to the Restless armor, the sheer amount of hatred packed into their mail classifies them as members of the Demon family rather than material.

Despite official illustrations showing the monster wielding an axe and a shield, none of the Errant's sprites reflect this. Instead, the knights arm up as they change color and gain new nomenclature.

Etymology[edit]

  • Errant is an antiquated term that refers to a traveling person, or one who is wandering. The Knight errant (wandering knight) is a stock character in chivalric romance.
  • The Japanese name, Yoroi no Kishi (よろいのきし), which directly means armoured horseback samurai (i.e. Japanese cavalrymen), but kishi is also used to mean "knight", especially in the style of the European middle ages.
