Knight is a starting class in the series. Knights are centaurs, and possess movement of 7, usually high Hit Points, or Defense. Their Attack statistic varies.
Knights are melee based fighters, able to use Lances and Halberds, or Spears for a ranged attack. A small number of Knights can also use limited magic.
Knights usually promote into Paladins, although Knights in Shining Force II: Ancient Sealing can be promoted to Pegasus Knights. In Shining Force III, Paladins can be further promoted to the class of Holy Knight.
Though they have a high movement stat, Knights are slowed heavily by mountain and forest terrain.
