This is my final version of the Black Knight. Just made a quick edit as he looked more Grey Knight than Black Knight.


A dangerous adversary from a time long gone, the Black Knight (who's name is lost to history) is considered by many to be the ultimate and most dangerous dragon slayer ever to live. He slaughters dragons and all who stand in his way without any mercy, whether they be male or female, adult or child. He fears no one, and will not relent from his hunts until his prey lies dead and/or destroyed.

Strangely enough, his life began much more like that of any peasant. When he was young, he befriended an injured female dragon/human hybrid, who he found out was called Xin. The two would often play together and help each other in times of need. One time, the two of them helped to rescue a young prince, who was drowning in the river. Grateful for his rescue, the prince managed to convince his parents, the King and Queen, to allow the boy to be intiated and trained to become a knight, as well as to grant Xin amnesty for any past actions and protection from dragon slayers (due to the fact dragon slaying was becoming more common, with the large numbers of dragons that continued to appear).
The boy and Xin grew up together, and he became powerful and respected among his fellow knights, as well as great friends with the Prince. During one battle however, the King was badly injured and later died, although Xin and the boy managed to rescue him from the battlefield to be with his wife and son before his demise. Not long after the prince became the king, Xin was targetted by a feared group of dragon slayers known as the "Fist of God", a highly religious group of sorcerers and warriors who believed that dragons were servants of the devil. To the knights' horror, Xin was struck down and brutally murdered by the slayers. The King, also horrified and greatly saddened by the death of Xin, immediatley declared dragon slaying to be punishable by death. However, the tragedy kept coming.
The Fist of God, angered and disgusted by the new law, infiltrated the castle and murdered both the new king and his mother, the former queen. With no heir, the young knight was chosen to become the next for the throne. He accepted, but vowed to wipe out the Fist of God beforehand. Riding off alone, he managed to find them, but was outnumbered and captured. Turning their own anger on him for what the king had done, their leader - a powerful sorcerer - began to chant a spell, which started to change him into a dragon, leaving him horribly disfigured. However, the knights' will and newfound power allowed him to break free before the magic could completely transform him, and destroy all but the leader of the slayers. Before the knight killed him, the leader warned him he would now only become a human again by killing all of the dragons. It was a blatant lie, but with him now no longer able to return, the knight fled, weeping for what had been done to him. Eventually, him sorrow became anger and his anger became hatred. Sure enough, the choice to direct his hatred at was the dragons who he had previously loved so much. Utilising his new abilities and knowledge, he began her mission; to wipe out every last dragon in the world. Casting aside his name from birth, he became 'The Black Knight'.

The Black Knight's armour is almost impenetrable and incredibly light, allowing him unbelievable agility and speed while still thoroughly protecting him. The armour has shown to resist the enormous crushing force of dragon's jaws and is impervious to heat, magnetism and many other dragon attacks. As well as the armour, the Black Knight is a master swordsman and weapon user, having learned many arts of combat through the years. He is able to master any weapon instantly and weild them with deadly accuracy and earth-shattering force.
Thanks to his dragon side, he has learned much Dragon Magic, including the powerful magic of the ancients as well as the black magic of Dark Sorcerers. From learning it, the knight has gained control over the elemental forces of nature and developed incredible and mighty powers of the mind, including telepathy, telekinesis, teleportation and others. As well as this, his dragon side has increased his strength to monumental levels. He also has gained both wings and a tail from the partial transformation, allowing him to fly with amazing speed and grace.
Perhaps his most frightening ability is his ability to gain the powers of any dragon he fights. He can make his weapons more dangerous by combining these powers with them. Last, but not least, he is capable of using his magic to create vast armies of evil warriors. With these, he has eliminated all enemies (human or otherwise) who have tried to destroy him.
The Black Knight's last battle of that time was a terrifying battle in the Arctic Circle against 2 Dragons (the only survivors of a group of 14 powerful warriors sent to destroy him). Although he fatally wounded his prey and knocked the other unconcious, the ice dragon had one last trick to play before its demise. Using its powers, it cracked the ice beneath the black knight, causing him to fall into a deep chasm. When the knight opened his wings and tried to fly out, the Ice dragon, with its final breath, froze his wings with an ice beam while the unconcious dragon awoke before taking advantage and using his power to cause an avalanche of ice and snow. The avalanche buried both the fatally injured dragon and knight, trapping him in a state of suspended animation for hundreds of years while the sole survivor, barely alive himself, headed away from the battlefield.

In the early 21st century, the Black Knight's icy tomb had thawed out enough for him to escape out into the world again. With no modern weapon of science effective against this warrior from the past, only the dragons and magic warriors of today stand a chance of stopping his rampage. His hatred of dragons and himself has left him in a deluded and paranoid state, bordering on the edge of insanity. Because of this, he is more dangerous then ever.
It is likely he will never know, or believe, that only when he is defeated in combat will the spell be broken and he will become a human once again.

Evil! Very powerful, but Viktor could easily defeat him.
AngelGhidorah Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2012
I doubt that.
BlackDragonScars and 14 of the most powerful warriors (dragon and otherwise) took on the Black Knight. Black was the only survivor and he barely made it out alive.

Viktor has mastered many forms of magic, including control over all elements and all variations of a Mancer (i.e. Necromancer, Pyromancer, etc.) and he heals instantly.

Could be tough, since The Black Knight gains the abilities of his foes and knows ancient magic as well as all combat styles. Viktor would have his work cut out for him, but it would be interesting.

*nods* Agreed, but it would be an interesting show/battle/fight. ^.~
