Dragonlance: Age of Mortals
Knights of Takhisis
The Knights of Takhisis were formed by Ariakan, son of the Dragon Highlord Duulket Ariakas. From shortly before the Chaos War and into the Age of Mortals, the Dark Knights have become a force to be reckoned with, conquering much of the land of Ansalon. The Dark Knights follow three basic tenets: the Vision, the Blood Oath, and the Code. The Knighthood is led by the supreme commander, the Lord of the Night. Three Lord Knights are under him, which include the Lord of the Fang, Lord of the Skull, and Lord of the Lily.
All knights are trained for the betterment of the knighthood. If one knight feels that another knight wronged them, or if they want to advance into the Order of Lords, they may challenge the knight to a duel of the death. The loser will be buried, while the other will retain their honor. Dark Knights will salute an honorable enemy such as the Solamnic Knights, Windriders, or minotaur Legionary, but will not those of the Legion of Steel, human mercenaries, or those of the lesser races. A knight will also set aside one day a year to honor Zeboim, and the founding of the knighthood.
