Black Knight or Dark Knight (黒騎士) was a member of the Thirteen Heroes and the national hero of the City-State Alliance.


The Black Knight's appearance was that of a knight covered in black armor. He is also considered to be of demonic descent, so some speculate that he was a half-demon by blood.



The Black Knight was said to possess the blood of demons, having been stated to have been a mixed blood.

Two hundred years ago, the world was plagued with dangerous monsters known as the Evil Deities. At that time, he adventured alongside the Thirteen Heroes in search for the Evil Deities and helped to defeat them.

While the Thirteen Heroes were in the realm of fairy tales, the Black Knight was the most realistic of them due to the legacy he left in his swords.[1]

The Karnassus City-State Alliance considers him to be their country's national hero. For unknown reasons however, his origins were covered up in the saga of the Thirteen Heroes.
