Little is known about the Knight Brotherhood; although the organization spans nearly every continent of the globe, its methods and true purpose have been kept a closely guarded secret for centuries.
Whenever the knights appear, rumors flow in their wake. Some speculate that without the knights watching over mankind, an evil darkness would envelope the whole of human society.
Rumors escalated when Rathbone began acting on his own accord, sometimes in conflict with his former knight allies. No one is certain whether Rathbone was ejected or if he left by his own free will, but a dark air seems to follow wherever he goes, and superstitious villagers have linked his appearance to locust infestations.
