The Remnant Knights

"Protect the innocent, Survive the Trials, Serve Remnant." — Creed of The Remnant Knights
Reference Picture

A separate clandestine yet powerful Order forged from the most trustworthy and formidable warriors around Remnant who have been secretly gathered by The King of Vale and The Wizard with the intention to fight a shadow war against the forces of the Dark Queen, her Inner Circle and the Grimm. Alongside the other Guardians of Remnant under the leadership of Ozpin, they counter the forces of darkness at every turn while keeping certain dangerous secrets away from Remnant's populace at large, such as the existence of the Grimm Queen and the Relics.

     In General 

  • Badass Creed: Protect the innocent, Survive the Trials, Serve Remnant.
  • Big Fancy Castle: Tintagel, the massive fortress headquarters of the Knight Order. Its true location was so secretive (and classified) that only a handful of trusted individuals around Remnant knows where it actually is. Because of its extreme importance, all Remnant Knights are also required to enact Eclipse Protocol to ensure that no one outside of their Order accidentally discovers Tintagel's location.
  • Blade on a Stick: Some of the Remnant Knights wield huge halbreds and fighting staves.
  • Cool Sword: Most of the Remnant Knights possess these as their primary weapon of choice.
    • The Knight Castellans each possess a legendary blade as their weapon and sword of office.
  • Demon Slaying: Make that Grimm-slaying.
  • Due to the Dead: Every Remnant Knight that has fallen in performing their duty had their name (both Knight and real name) inscribed on the Wall of Valor within Tintagel.
  • Godzilla Threshold: When the situation on Remnant ever reaches this trope, the Knight Order still has one last card to play: The Vault of Avalon.
  • Meaningful Name: Each Remnant Knight would be given a new name upon their knighthood, which can include certain traits like their skills, abilities, or even their appearance.
    • For example, Sharp Strike is given that aforementioned name due to his impressive dual-wielding sword skills.
  • Noodle Incident: Two instances known so far.
    • How one of the four Relics was very nearly stolen by Salem's Sin Commanders and the Guardians of Remnant work together with the Remnant Knights to get it back successfully.
    • How exactly a battle between Salem's agents and the Guardians of Remnant resulted in one of the Relics' mountain temples being completely destroyed is left ambiguous.
  • Powered Armor: The Aegis armor suits worn by the Remnant Knights are crafted from both advanced and mystical technologies long lost to Remnant. No two suits were the same, and each was tailored specifically to the Knight himself or herself.
  • Real After All: To the people of Remnant, the Remnant Knights are commonly seen as the figures of legends and myths. To the highest levels of the Kingdoms' Councils and the Guardians of Remnant, only they are entrusted with the information that the Knight Order exists.
  • Seers: The Prognosticators, a specialist unit of the Knight Order operate this way, assisting the Remnant Knights in battle as well as using their abilities to predict the location and severity of Grimm incursions.
  • Silver Bullet: Certain Remnant Knights have a special bullet that was intricately engraved with tiny runes and script that are anathema to any creatures of Grimm. Each specially-crafted round was believed to contain a tiny fragment of Silver Eye energy that was said to be derived from the eyes of the honorable Grand Knight Master Lord Emmanuel himself.
  • Secret Keeper: The Knight Order has a lot of secrets, and many of them could have catastrophic consequences if known to the world of Remnant at large.
    • For example, after a Noodle Incident in which involves one of the four Relics (later revealed to the Lamp of Knowledge) was very nearly stolen by Salem's Sin Commanders; Ozpin entrusted the said Relic to the Remnant Knights who brought it back to Tintagel for it to be properly protected since the Relic's mountain temple was sadly destroyed in a previous battle.
  • The Greatest Story Never Told: The Remnant Knights have fought a silent shadow war against the Grimm Mistress and her associates ever since their founding alongside the other Guardians of Remnant, and their greatest victories (or defeats, if any) will never be known to the world of Remnant at large.

Reference Picture

A Knight Errant with a mysterious past that was assigned by the Knight Order to join Team Beacon. Being one of the few squires personally trained and mentored by Argentius, he was considered one of the best sword users the Order has ever seen in their long history.

  • Badass Cape: Wears one around his shoulders that's midnight-blue in colour.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He had a couple of these moments.

    • He stepped in to save the Summer Maiden Heliosia Ainea from having her powers stolen in Chapter 76.

  • Flaming Sword: Hong Long, one of his longswords can light itself up in flames during battle with Red Dust.

  • Mix-and-Match Weapon: Hong Long and Lan Feng are actually master-crafted longswords with multi-chamber revolvers built into their hilts.
  • Mysterious Past: Sharp Strike has a past so obscured that only the highest levels of the Knight Order possibly even knew the truth about him. From the few clues scattered throughout the fanfic Chapters, it’s certainly building towards a dangerous revelation.
  • Sword and Gun: He fights this way sometimes in a few of the Chapters using a blade and his custom revolver Vanquisher.
  • What Beautiful Eyes!: Sharp Strike, when he had his helmet visor removed in Chapter 48, was revealed to have navy blue eyes with a hint of vermilion red around the irises.
