The Knight Lord (Japanese: ロードナイト Lordknight) is an advanced, mounted lord-type class. It is shared by three Fire Emblem series protagonists: it is the promoted class for Seliph of Genealogy of the Holy War and Eliwood of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, and is the initial class of Sigurd, Seliph's father, in Genealogy. Wielding swords and lances, the class is very similar to the Paladin.

In Genealogy of the Holy War, the Knight Lord promotes from Junior Lord under the usual circumstances for the game; it is not a story-driven event and can be done at any time once Seliph reaches Level 20. In Fire Emblem, it promotes from Eliwood's Lord variant, the circumstances of which depend on the story mode in question; in Eliwood's tale mode, the promotion is an automatic event at the end of Chapter 27, while in Hector's story mode, the Heaven Seal promotion item can be used at any time under the usual promotion circumstances.

Trivia

Ss fe07 0205 prototype durandal knight lord.gif
  • In The Blazing Blade, the Knight Lord has a unique battle animation when wielding Durandal. In the two prototype builds the game, this animation is significantly different from that of the finished product, sporting a much shorter blade.
