[edit] Character Data

[edit] Background

The Black Knight is one of Mad King Ashnard's Four Riders, equipped with a blessed sword called Alondite, blessed armor, and Ike's archrival. However, unknown until near the end of Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, he is also Zelgius, Begnion's strongest general. He is a branded, and only serves Sephiran, the Prime Minister of Begnion, whom he considers his true master.

[edit] Personality

The personality of Black Knight throughout the happenings of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn suggests he is a very arrogant, straight forward, soldier who is very good at obeying orders. During the events of Path of Radiance he exposes no remorse what soever for murdering his once closest teacher Greil. He is willing to carry out any order without question, particularly if the orders come from Sephiran.

[edit] Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

The Black Knight is first seen in Gallia, after the laguz chased away Petribe's forces. Later that night, he challenged Greil to a duel and killed him. He also offered Greil the blessed sword Ragnell, but Greil refused to use it; you also learn that Greil trained the Black Knight. The Black Knight eventually kills Greil, and Ike swears to have vengeance.

In the 27th chapter of the game, Ike, with Mist's help, defeats the Black Knight; the castle collapses immediately after, and the group escapes, leaving the Knight in the crumbling tower.

[edit] Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

In Chapter 9 of part 1, the Black Knight returns to Daien to protect Micaiah from Jarod, the Begnion general. He also fights in Part 1's endgame, and disappears shortly after Daien is saved. During the time he is gone, he is in fact commanding the Begnion army against the laguz as Zelgius. Fortunately, when Sanaki arrives, he pledges his allegiance to her and stops taking orders from the senate. He continues to fight for both Daien and Begnion until the end of Part 3. He then appears to help Micaiah during a battle with one of her armies, and is finally unmasked by Ike in the tower of guidance. They proceed to duel, and if Ike wins, Zelgius, who's only goal was to duel Gawain in his strongest years, admits to Ike that he was at least as powerful as his father in his strongest years. He dies content, glad to have finally discovered how strong he was against his teacher. Ike views him as his own final teacher.

[edit] Fire Emblem: Awakening

The Black Knight appears as a Spotpass character in the most recant installment in the Fire Emblem Series, Fire Emblem: Awakening. He is free to recruit, and he appears under the category of Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. His stats are relatively high and he is the General class, thus he can only use Lances and Axes (not Swords). He also looks quite different then he appears in both Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, featuring blue armor and a very apparent lack of helm. He is completely bald faced with dark blue hair like Zelgius. In fact, he appears much more like Zelgius then really the Black Knight at all (even though they are both the same character).
