The Holy Knights
|THE SUN KNIGHT
“The benevolent God of Light will forgive your sins.”
Real name: Grisia (Gree-see-ah) Sun
Hair color: Gold; Eye color: Sky blue
Widely regarded as: The benevolent spokesperson of the God of Light, the man closest to perfection alive.
|Aside from being the leader of the Twelve Holy Knights, the “good, warm-hearted” faction, and the Holy Temple itself, the 38th generation Sun Knight is also possibly one of the biggest frauds in the history of the continent.The reason is obviously because there is a scandalously big chasm between his appearance and his true personality. On the surface, the Sun Knight is a benevolent, forgiving man who is pure of mind, doesn’t drink, doesn’t swear, does everything gracefully, and smiles all the time; his best friend is the Earth Knight, his sworn enemy is the Judgment Knight, and apples are his favorite fruits. Scratch away that veneer, however, and you will find a man with a head full of lecherous thoughts, a cellar full of wine, and a lot of swear words in his vocabulary. His real best friend is the Judgment Knight, the person he detests the most is the Earth Knight, and he hates apples with a passion that’s almost holy. Other than the…lapse in personality, there are also other ways in which Sun is not very knightly. For instance, to say that Sun’s skill with a sword is “not that good” would be quite a major understatement, since he is downright lousy at it. He is extremely proficient at wielding holy magic, however. His weapon (of choice…not) is the Divine Sun Sword.
Sun loves to eat extremely sweet stuff.
|THE STORM KNIGHT
“More reports to write again…”
Real name: Ceo (See-oh) Storm
Hair color: Blue (dyed); Eye color: Green
Widely regarded as: A carefree, footloose charmer, the knight-representative of “freedom”.
|One of the members of the “good, warm-hearted” faction, the Storm Knight is, unfortunately enough for him, one of Sun’s subordinates.He may be the knight-representative of “freedom” and hence able to skip meetings on a regular basis, but for that very reason, most of the work – especially Sun’s – usually gets pushed onto him. Also, despite the Storm Knight’s reputation as a flirt, this particular Storm Knight seems to still be a virgin…|
|THE EARTH KNIGHT
“I’m not too used to sp-speaking with girls…”
Real name: Georgo (Greoh-go) Earth
Hair color: Brown; Eye color: Hazel
Widely regarded as: The yearly winner of “The Man Women Want Most as Their Husband” poll.
|He may be a member of the “good, warm-hearted” faction, but if the Sun Knight is the #1 fraud in the history of the continent, then the Earth Knight would most definitely be #2. On the surface, the Earth Knight is Sun’s loyal, honest, and level-headed best friend. He is sincere and easily tongue-tied, especially when talking to girls. This, of course, accounts for his popularity among the ladies, and he has been ranked #1 on “The Man Women Want Most as Their Husband” poll for several years running.In truth, however, the Earth Knight is quite the lascivious villain. His number of romantic conquests could have been higher, however, but for the constant interference of a certain “best friend”, which is probably the reason why he loathes Sun deeply.
The Earth Knight specializes in defense, and his ultimate skill is “The Shield of Earth”.
|THE LEAF KNIGHT
“Sun, are you really all right? Does it hurt? Do you need help? Are you sure?”
Real name: Elmairy (El-mare-ry) Leaf
Nickname: Elm, Elmy, Strawberry
Hair color: Green; Eye color: Gray-green
Widely regarded as: A truly nice guy.
|Yet another member of the “good, warm-hearted” faction, the Leaf Knight is a genuinely good-hearted person. He turns into a genuinely scary person, however, when you put a bow in his hands. According to Sun, Leaf can fire five arrows in ten seconds, with all of them hitting the bull’s eye. He can also run, leap, sing a song, turn his head to look at a hot babe, and turn the enemy into a hedgehog with his arrows, all at the same time.
He specializes in ranged attacks, and his weapon is the Divine Leaf Bow.
|THE BLAZE KNIGHT
Real name: Chikus (Chee-kuhs) Blaze
Hair color: Red; Eye color: Amber
Widely regarded as: A person with fiery red hair with a temper to match, and who worships the Sun Knight.
|A member of the “good, warm-hearted” faction, Blaze is one of the rare members whose real personality matched the Blaze Knight persona. He is a strong swordsman who also specializes in purifying flames that could cleanse the spirit.|
|THE CLOUD KNIGHT
“…Are you looking for me?”
Real name: Demos (Dee-mose) Cloud
Hair color: Pink; Eye color: Unknown
Widely regarded as: A free spirit who loves roaming and reading books.
|The Cloud Knight is the last member of the “good, warm-hearted” faction, but his presence is often forgotten. It is so easy to overlook his presence that he could follow Sun around half of the Holy Temple before Sun discovers him. He likes to hide inside bookshelf and he knows the location of every single book in the library. Cloud follows every instruction of the Sun Knight diligently (because the books said so).|
|THE JUDGMENT KNIGHT
“The harsh God of Light will punish you for your sins.”
Real name: Lesus (Leh-suhs) Judgment, formerly Lesus Lucen
Hair color: Black; Eye color: Black
Widely regarded as: The most terrifying and cruelest of the Holy Knights, responsible for judging criminals.
|The leader of the “cruel, cold-hearted” faction, the Judgment Knight – whose very name sends criminals quaking in their boots – spends his time (after interrogating criminals) in the toilet, throwing up and chatting with his “sworn enemy”, the Sun Knight. He first met Sun during their first practice quarrel, and the two have been fast friends ever since.
His weapon of choice is the Divine Judgement Sword.
|THE ICE KNIGHT
Real name: Ecilan (Icy-lan) Ice
Hair color: Light blue; Eye color: Blue-gray
Widely regarded as: A cold person who doesn’t like to talk much.
|A member of the “cruel, cold-hearted” faction, the Ice Knight usually has no expression on his face, which may mislead people into thinking that he really is a cruel, cold-hearted person. But really, cruel, cold-hearted people don’t usually make blueberry-flavored shaved ice for their enemies to eat on hot summer days, do they? Especially if the blueberry sauce is homemade… Ice’s fighting style is passive in nature. He can stand still for a whole day just waiting for his opponent to lunge his way, and then he will finish off his opponent with a single, fatal thrust. His weapon of choice is a giant, sharpened popsicle…the Divine Ice Sword, that is.
He is on pretty good terms with the Sun Knight.
|THE MOON KNIGHT
Real name: Vival (Vee-val) Moon
Hair color: Indigo; Eye color: Violet
Widely regarded as: A famous loner and narcissist.
|The Moon Knight is one of the more tragic members of the “cruel, cold-hearted” faction. Since he needs to keep his chin up permanently to create an haughty image, his neck muscles have stiffened to the point that he can’t lower his head anymore. This can be a problem if he accidentally drops some items or when he wants to kiss his girlfriend. As a result, he can only woo girls who are at least 180cm tall and wear high heels.|
|THE METAL KNIGHT
“…And it’s a shining pillar to boot, so sparkly and pretty!”
Real name: Laica (Lie-kah) Metal
Hair color: Brown; Eye color: Unknown
Widely regarded as: A person with poisonous barbed tongue.
|The Metal Knight is a member of the “cruel, cold-hearted” faction, and it was rumored that if you speak to him for ten minutes, your lifespan will be shortened by a year. Contrary to his widely regarded persona, the Metal Knight can’t say anything poisonous. He actually complimented Sun as sparkly and pretty when he was trying to be poisonous.|
|THE HELL KNIGHT
“Shameless, shameless! You are not fit to be an holy knight!”
Real name: Roland Hell
Nickname: Supreme Dragon Hell
Hair color: Black hair streaked with silver; Eye color: Blue-green
Widely regarded as: A person who doesn’t date, doesn’t care for money, doesn’t gamble, doesn’t drink, doesn’t brawl, doesn’t…
|The Hell Knight is the only knight who belongs to the “cruel, cold-hearted” faction but takes order from the Sun Knight. This sparked the rumors that Hell Knight in truth isn’t a real person, instead he was an identity assumed by the Sun Knight when he needed to carry out special missions. Roland isn’t the true Hell Knight successor [this makes more sense, gramatically], who should be chosen by the predecessor, but he takes on the Hell Knight identity under Sun’s instruction. He had been tortured to death by the Fat Pig King of the Kingdom of Forgotten Sound, and his sword skill is nearly unmatched both before and after his death. He was revived as a Death Knight due to his obsession of becoming the Sun Knight, and his obsession was so strong that it enable him to transform into a Death Lord. He has the power to summon undead and to teleport. His real identity of being a Death Lord is known only among the Twelve Holy Knights.|
|THE STONE KNIGHT
“I refuse to become more stubborn.”
Real name: Aivis (Ai-vuhs) Stone
Hair color: Brown; Eye color: Unknown
Widely regarded as: A very stubborn person.
|The Stone Knight belongs to the “cruel, cold-hearted” faction and is famous for his stubbornness that is as tough and unyielding as a rock. It is said that to crack his skull is a simple matter, but to break his stubbornness would be more difficult than overthrowing the Church of the God of Light.In reality, this generation’s Stone Knight is quite amiable and easy to get along with, but he adamantly refuses to become more stubborn. Among the “cruel, cold-hearted” faction, the Stone Knight is the one who handles diplomacy.|
Kingdom of Forgotten Sound
“Don’t you dare call me cute.”
Real name: ???
Hair color: White; Eye color: Green
Widely regarded as: The most powerful member of the Church of the God of Light
|Although he looks like a cute 15-year old boy, the Pope’s actual age is unknown. However, according to Neo Sun, the previous Sun Knight, he is at least sixty years old. He “manages” the finances of the Church of the God of Light (although he is a complete miser), and oversees the Holy Church, the faction of clerics. He is extremely shrewd and seems to be hiding many secrets, especially the one about him being rather adept at magic… He is also capable of using Resurrection with a 1/8 chance of a complete revival.|
