Four Imperial Knights (帝国四騎士) are the strongest elite military unit of the Baharuth Empire, whom serve as the private guard of the Emperor, Jircniv Rune Farlord El Nix.


Each of the four knights is recruited by Jircniv to serve as his personal guards, regardless of their backgrounds or history, provided that they possess exceptional fighting skills. As a result, each of them has differing attitudes and abilities. Even their degree of loyalty to their liege varies between each individual.

The Four Knights are tasked with carrying out the Emperor’s will. In terms of authority in the Imperial Army, they would be considered equal to the rank of a general.
