Main Story[edit | edit source]
History[edit | edit source]
Before the Knight appeared, the Dark World was ruled by four kings. However, this all changed when the Knight took King under their control, and the three other Kings were locked away in Card Castle. As a result, King became the absolute monarch over the Dark World. The Knight then continued to create the Eastern Fountain. The details on how the Knight has affected King, are currently unknown.
Chapter 1[edit | edit source]
During Chapter 1, the Knight never makes an appearance. Instead, the party learns of them from stories primarily told by King and Seam. The Knight is referred to as a "strange knight". The Knight's whereabouts during Chapter 1 are unknown.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- King refers to the Knight as "my Knight" in the same way a subject might refer to their ruler as "my King," swearing not to let the Knight down.
- If defeated violently, Jevil briefly speaks of the Knight in addition to a "Queen", implying a potential greater antagonist or superior to the Knight. This also keeps with most Darkners representing toys, as the Queen in chess is the most powerful piece, although knights may be more versatile.
