The Knights of the Pious Lion
The knights of the Pious Lion
The signature unit of Leon, the Knights of the Pious Lion serve as Count Renaud's personal guard and his cavalry in war. Their armor is unpainted and unadorned - unpolished but oiled and well cared for. A pair of lions snarl from each shoulder, while the rose badge of the house of De Moley rests over the heart of each man. While each knight is proud of his identity and achievements, in battle they kneel their pride to the Pancreator, fighting only as the Pious Lions. It is a tradition dating back several hundred years to the crusades against the Sathrist Kingdoms - a lone Knight of Leon, never identified, standing against a full company of enemy troops. No one survived that battle - not even the knight.
