Overview

Cavaliers are paragons of honor and valor, serving as defenders of their homelands. While paladins swear devotion to a particular deity, the cavalier is a protector of his nation and its people. They are specially trained in mounted combat, leading charges and rallying forces on the battlefield under their banners.

The kingdom of Barylon is best known for its corps of mounted Knights, who spend years training with equestrian masters from neighboring Senestria. These Knights, with their traditional blue and white liveries, are an inspiring presence among the armies of Barylon. The Knights also travel alone, serving as diplomatic representatives of the kingdom. They are as ready to address a formal court as they are to charge into combat.

Party Role: The cavalier is a specialist in mounted combat. Paired with his trusted steed, he is a one-man cavalry valiantly leading the charge against any foe.

Restrictions: None. Training as a cavalier may be achieved in many areas, though it is most common in the kingdom of Barylon, as part of the progression toward membership in the Knighthood.
