Black Knight Quotes

“I am a general of Daein, and one of the Four Riders.”

“To think a world such as this could exist... If I stayed here, then perhaps...”

“Circumstances being what they are, I shall lend you my strength. However, just one shall ever be my true master.”

“To surpass General Gawain...is my ultimate goal as a swordsman.”

“I share a sword style with Ike, of the Greil Mercenaries... We also shared a master.”

“I learned the sword from a man I once called master. And now, that man... No... I have nothing to share.”

“Are you <Player Name>? Accept this missive from <Friend Name>.”

“To surpass my master... That is my true desire.”

“My master's blade was stronger... It was swifter...”


“Use my blade as you see fit.”

“I learned the sword from one of my fellow Four Riders, Gawain. He was a general without compare... I fought my master, and I won. However, by then he had already cast aside his true skill. This means I have not truly surpassed him. But defeating one whose strength rivaled his own could be another means of achieving that goal. I have forever longed for such a battle. Not everyone would understand such drive, but as one who also lives by battle, I thought that perhaps you... Well, that is all.”
