Knight is the generic term used to refer to specialized warriors the Overlord series. Besides being a job class name for some, individuals not belonging to the class can still be classified as one to some degree by making things through other means elsewhere.


Knights were warriors that were granted knighthood. The Baharuth Empire’s ‘knights’ referred to the common folk who were part of the standing army. On the other hand, the knights of the Kingdom were those who were granted a title of nobility. For example the third son of a noble household would become a knight, since they were unable to inherit his household. However, since the Kingdom paid the knights handsomely, they only accepted those who were skilled with the sword. It was impossible with only connections even if one were a noble.
