Bors, the Black Knight


Bors may be an excellent knight, but he doesn't have as many grand accomplishments as Lancelot and the others. That does not bother him in the least, as he believes that glory becomes worthless if spread too thin. All that matters to him is that he is able to serve the people and king of Camelot to the best of his ability.

Name OriginEdit

knight is a person granted an honorary title of knighthood by a monarch or other political leader for service to the Monarch or country, especially in a military capacity. Historically, in Europe, knighthood has been conferred upon mounted warriors. During the High Middle Ages, knighthood was considered a class of lower nobility. By the Late Middle Ages, the rank had become associated with the ideals of chivalry, a code of conduct for the perfect courtly Christian warrior. Often, a knight was a vassal who served as a fighter for a lord, with payment in the form of land holdings. The lords trusted the knights, who were skilled in battle on horseback. Since the early modern period, the title of knight is purely honorific, usually bestowed by a monarch, as in the British honours system, often for non-military service to the country.
