Dark Knights
Dark Knight, from Ultima I manual
Variants: Knights
Only appearance: Ultima I

Dark Knights are once-chivalrous warriors gone rogue, thanks to Mondain's influence. Trained in combat and well armed, be wary of them, for they are seldom seen on their own. Many lead gangs of hoods and the occasional thief. Only well-armed adventurers should dare to challenge a dark knight to a duel.

Dark knights can be found everywhere in Sosaria during the first Age of Darkness, but seem to prefer the cover of the great trees of the forests.


Such is the corrupting influence of the foul Mondain that even the most virtuous of Sosarian chivalry are subject to fall under his sway. The land is now befouled with Dark Knights - predatory warriors who seek to waylay innocent travelers and to rob them of their hard earned goods.

A Dark Knight from the original Apple II Ultima I manual

  • The original Apple II manual picture for the dark knight looks suspiciously like one of the knights of Ni from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, just like the picture in the remake looks like the Black Knight from the same movie.
