The Agatha Knights are one of two major factions. The Knights are the soldiers who are still loyal to Danum Argon, King Alfonso Argon's nephew. They fight Malric and the Mason Order, hoping to keep peace and stability within Agatha, even by being away from home to protect the peace against a supposed distant threat like Tenosia. The Agatha Knights are also known as "loyalists", and are made up of mostly royalty and nobility, people who once owned most of the lands and peasants before civil war, and who are distraught by the war at home's effect on trade and matters of economy. Late in the war, however, King Danum used the growing might of the army to persuade many peasants and barbarians to take up arms against the Masons. The Agatha Knights believe in the concepts of nobility and being just in one's actions, though greed and corruption exists within those with power. On the battlefield, to people who put their own lives over all suffering, it might seem, that Agatha Knights bring the notion of honor and chivalry to the extent of losing logic and reason. Many men who agree with their ideals and have been driven away by the Mason's ferocity against peasants have joined Agathian levies along with the knights and nobility.
The Knights are led by two people; Steward Feydrid Kearn, who ruled the realm in place of Danum Argon while he was on the battlefield, and the aforementioned Danum Argon, rightful King of Agatha. As well, Sir Finnian Guld and Feydrid command the army, with Finnian becoming General of the Army if Feydrid is killed in the Battle of Stoneshill.
