- This article is for Faerie Courts position. For the Knghts of the Cross position, see Knights of the Cross.
There is usually only one Knight per court at a time. The Knight is the only entity allowed to act in affairs that aren't directly related to the Sidhe. If the Faerie Queen wants an outsider dead, he's the trigger man because a Queen can't personally kill anyone not in their court.
The knight works for all three of the Faerie Queens of their own court having different duties with each one: Lady, Queen, Mother.
- Main article: Mantle
The Knight gets powers in line with his court. They come from the Queen and go back to the Queen when he dies. They are considerable and "carry a weight that only a free mortal can possess". The Mantle, or power, is key in maintaining balance between the Faerie Courts.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
It's hard to kill a Knight. Among the Sidhe, it would have to be another Knight or one of the Queens. For a wizard to kill a Knight he'd have to be brawny and have a lot of preparation and a good channel to him to make it look like an accident. For regular people to do it, it would take a burning a building or making a crater, something big.
In the seriesEdit
