Tarhos Kovács didn’t remember much about his childhood, but what he did remember he would chase his entire life. He remembered the cries and screams in the village. He remembered his mother forcing him to swallow a thick, black fluid like medicine. He remembered collapsing to the hard floor only to awaken in a mass grave, buried under a crush of bodies, with the sound of the village burning in his ears. He remembered pushing, pulling, and climbing to the top of the bloody mass only to be seized by the death, destruction, and silence—the indifferent and impenetrable silence. A high-pitched whine suddenly sounded in his ears and his skin began to prickle as he realised he was in the presence of something he couldn’t possibly understand. And though he couldn’t articulate what he was experiencing, he knew it wasn’t pain, grief, or fear. It was something else. Something closer to—

Awe.

As Tarhos tried to make sense of the moment, he didn’t notice the men who approached him from behind. He didn’t even react when they carried him off to a horse-drawn buggy and locked him up in a small, wooden cage with other slaves. He just stared at the scene, mesmerized. And even as they rode away telling him he was headed for Italy, Tarhos stared through the wooden cracks with eyes wide open and a heart wanting to understand what could not be understood.

From that day on, Tarhos belonged to the Guardia Compagnia where he trained under Kadir Hakam. There he learned to wield weapons, forge armor, and recite a code of chivalry to obediently serve those who would employ his services. As the years passed, Tarhos made few friends amongst the hostile and competitive mercenaries. But his skill, strength, and smarts attracted a small following who believed his courage brought them luck in battle and that one day he would help them earn their collective freedom. Three of his followers pledged their undying allegiance to Tarhos and came to be known as his faithful three. His pack.

Alejandro Santiago apprenticed with the Guardia Compagnia’s Armourer.

Durkos Malecek showed an aptitude for stealth and silent kills.

Sander Rault matched Tarhos in size and strength. His weapon of choice: a massive battle axe.

As the Guardia Compagnia carried out campaigns in faraway lands, Tarhos dispatched countless enemies. Years passed. Blood flowed. And yet, all that killing still didn’t bring Tarhos closer to what he had experienced in his village. Nevertheless, for his bravery in battle, Tarhos was granted knighthood and freedom. The Hungarian slave was now liberated, his brutality rewarded, though his heart still longed for something else — something he could not name or describe. Tired of taking orders from those he considered his inferiors, Tarhos left the Guardia Compagnia to strike out on his own. Their leader, however, refused to release his followers.

Determined to raise enough gold to liberate his followers, Tarhos found employment with a wealthy Italian Lord. Vittorio Toscano was the Duke of Portoscuro. He was also a scholar, a world traveller, and a collector of ancient knowledge that had been hidden by an unknown cabal of mystics. Tarhos joined Vittorio’s latest expedition to find a fragment of a pillar from an ancient school lost to time. A stone Vittorio called the Lapis Paradisus for he believed it held secrets to open a gateway into a perfect world beyond good and evil.

The expedition searched Roman ruins in France and crossed the Pyrenees Mountains into Spain where the path led to the catacombs beneath the Portuguese city of Sintra.

The citizens there considered the catacombs sacred. Tarhos would have to kill the villagers guarding the entrance to retrieve the stone. Not wanting to shed blood, Vittorio commanded Tarhos to find another way. But Tarhos — who had seen the most horrific acts committed under the guise of chivalry — refused to be dissuaded by pretences of honour. He waited for Vittorio to ride back to camp. Then, with a mighty roar, he pushed forward, cutting a path of blood and gore into the darkness until he had the stone in his grasp.

Upon returning to the town of Portoscuro, Tarhos imprisoned Vittorio in his own dungeon, demanding to know the meaning behind the symbols etched in the stone. When Vittorio refused to talk, Tarhos brutally tortured his friends and relatives and made horrific displays of their bodies in the streets. But nothing he did shook Vittorio’s resolve to keep the secrets of the stone from Tarhos. Enraged, Tarhos seized control of Vittorio’s riches and raised a small army. Within months, Tarhos fearlessly marched upon the Guardia Compagnia, decimating their barracks, freeing his followers, cutting down his enemies like twigs and collecting their ‘righteous’ heads for his growing displays of ‘valor.’

In time several lords in neighbouring provinces believed Tarhos was the very embodiment of evil. They banded together to create a ‘moral’ and ‘virtuous’ army to purge evil from Portoscuro. Tarhos ignored their threats. He viewed the lords as a cowardly lot who cloaked their greed and ambition in laws, codes, and platitudes. Laws and codes and platitudes designed to hide from the very darkness Tarhos embraced and accepted without judgment.

But, with his enemies on the march, Tarhos headed toward the dungeons to give Vittorio the death he deserved. He refused to afford him even the slightest hope of rescue. With dark intentions, he entered the small prison, wound his way into the bowels of the earth, and pushed through a torch-lit corridor. He hesitated for a moment, realising he would never learn Vittorio’s knowledge and secrets. But neither would anyone else. That was good enough for him. And so, he unlocked and kicked open the dungeon door. Two quick strides brought him to an empty, rat-infested chamber.

Tarhos stood silent for a moment, then a roar of indignation burst out of his lungs as the sounds of battle suddenly reverberated through the town. Instantly, he stumbled through the corridor, rushed up the twisting stairs, vaulted out of the moonlit doorway and charged through pools of gleaming blood and viscera, smashing and shattering his way through the enemy. The ‘moral’ and ‘virtuous’ lords rained flaming boulders and tree-trunks among the town, bursting through homes, crushing villagers like worms, pounding the ground and igniting stacks of hay and piles of lumber into massive tongues of fire.

Amidst the carnage and chaos, the pack found Tarhos, and back-to-back, they became a whirlwind of death. Some believed their courage gave them luck. Others believed something otherworldly protected them. Whatever it was, they alone felled dozens of warriors as easily as stomping and crushing beetles. And as they butchered the enemy, Tarhos didn’t notice the strange fog rising from the fallen corpses and clattering armour until he couldn’t see two inches in front of him in any direction.

Tarhos stumbled forward, groping in the thick fog like the dark fluid his mother forced down his throat all those years ago. His coordination and sense of direction was confused as he called out for his pack. How long he stumbled in the almost perfect darkness he did not know. But suddenly the fog dissipated to reveal a phantasmal wasteland of rotting bodies and burning villages and great crumbling towers leaning drunkenly on the horizon. He stared in awe. A familiar high-pitched whine sounded in his ears and his skin began to prickle. He stood transfixed, realising by some incredible chance, his heart had found exactly what it had been searching for all his life. He didn’t need Vittorio. He didn’t need the stone. He had found his paradise. He had found —

The beauty and the horror.

He had found —

The Sublime.

Weapon: Imposing Claymore

Power: Guardia Compagnia

IconPowers guardiaCompagnia Carnifex
IconPowers guardiaCompagnia Assassin
IconPowers guardiaCompagnia Jailer

"The Knight alone is a terrifying monster on the battlefield, but with his loyal Guards, he is nearly unstoppable.
Together, the Guardia Compagnia fights for their own freedom, killing anyone who gets in their way."


SPECIAL ABILITY: GUARDIA COMPAGNIA
The Knight can summon his three loyal companions one at a time to patrol nearby areas, hunt Survivors, or perform tasks on his behalf.

SPECIAL ABILITY: GUARD SUMMON
Press and hold the Secondary Power button to cycle through the 3 Guards.
Press and hold the Power button to enter the Guard Summon Mode.
Press the Secondary Power button to exit it at any time.

While in the Guard Summon Mode, The Knight can move forwards at 13.8 m/s while steering with his camera, represented to Survivors as a Ghostly Orb that quickly fades to become invisible after exceeding 10 metres.
Moving in this form leaves a trail known as the Patrol Path.

The Knight automatically exits the Guard Summon Mode after exceeding the maximum length of the Patrol Path of 32 metres or after 10 seconds have elapsed.

The Knight is unable to see Survivors in this mode, as well as their Scratch MarksIconHelp scratchMarksIconHelp scratchMarksIconHelp scratchMarks and Pools of BloodIconStatusEffects bleedingIconStatusEffects bleedingIconStatusEffects bleeding, but can still see their interactions with the environment.

SPECIAL COMPANIONS: GUARDS
Each of the 3 Guards comes with his own special abilities:

  • The CarnifexIconPowers guardiaCompagnia Carnifex performs a Guard Order more quickly.
  • The AssassinIconPowers guardiaCompagnia Assassin walks faster during a Hunt and inflicts hit Survivors with Deep WoundIconStatusEffects deepWoundIconStatusEffects deepWoundIconStatusEffects deepWound Status Effect.
  • The JailerIconPowers guardiaCompagnia Jailer walks faster during a Patrol, has a larger Detection range, and longer Hunt and Patrol durations.


SPECIAL ABILITY: GUARD PATROL
While in the Guard Summon Mode drawing a Patrol Path of at least 10 metres grants the ability to order a Guard Patrol, summoning a Guard at the far end of the Patrol Path, causing him to repeatedly walk it up and down until either the Power Gauge is depleted or he detects a nearby Survivor, which will initiate a Hunt.
Additionally, the following effects apply, depending on the final length of the Patrol Path:

  • Grants The Knight a +5 % HasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects haste Status Effect for 2 to 10 seconds.
  • Reduces the duration of the Hunt Start-up phase of a Guard by -10 to -25 %.
  • Increases the duration of the Hunt of a Guard by a factor of x1 to x1.5:
    • 1 to 15 metres: x1
    • 16 to 25 metres: x1.25
    • 26+ metres: x1.5
  • Increases the Materialisation phase of the Standard placed by a Guard by a factor of x1 to x2:
    • 1 to 15 metres: x1
    • 16 to 25 metres: x1.5
    • 26+ metres: x2

The Knight can cancel an active Patrol by hitting the Guard with a Basic Attack.

SPECIAL ABILITY: GUARD ORDER
While in the Guard Summon Mode, press the Attack button while within 6 metres of a Breakable WallIconHelp breakableWallIconHelp breakableWallIconHelp breakableWall, dropped PalletIconHelp pullDownIconHelp pullDownIconHelp pullDown, or partially repaired GeneratorIconHelpLoading generatorsIconHelpLoading generatorsIconHelpLoading generators to initiate a Guard Order, causing the summoned Guard to perform the Break or Damage Action on the highlighted object.

A Guard Order regresses a Generator by -5 %.

SPECIAL ATTACK: GUARD HUNT
If a Survivor is inside the Detection range of a Guard and either in his line-of-sight or triggers a Loud Noise Notification, the Guard will detect their presence and phase through the environment, including through floors and across elevation, to reach their exact detected location over 2.5 seconds, after which he starts a Hunt , chasing after the Hunted Survivor:

  • Places a Standard at the exact detected location of the Survivor, which materialises over several seconds.
  • Damages any Survivor coming into its attack range, regardless of whether they are the Hunted Survivor or not.

Hunted Survivors can escape a Hunt unharmed by doing either of the following:

  • Grabbing the materialised Standard by walking into it.
    • This also grants the Survivor a +50 % HasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects haste Status Effect and the EnduranceIconStatusEffects enduranceSurvivorIconStatusEffects enduranceSurvivorIconStatusEffects enduranceSurvivor Status Effect, both lasting for 3 seconds.
  • Unhooking another Survivor.
  • Outlasting the duration of the Hunt indicated on their HUD portrait.

If The Knight comes within 8 metres of his Guard, the Depletion rate of the Hunt is increased by a factor of x3.
If either the Guard or The Knight damages the Hunted Survivor, the Hunt ends immediately and the former disappears.
If the Guard downs the Hunted Survivor, they trigger Killer Instinct for 3 seconds.

  • Spawn time: 1.5 seconds
  • Vision angle: 180 °
  • Vision Radius Expansion duration: 0.5 seconds

    • This refers to the time it takes a Guard to travel to the location the Survivor was detected at before the actual Hunt starts.

    • After this time elapses, The Knight is automatically forced out of the Guard Summon mode.
      In normal use cases, this has no effect on his ability to draw Paths, but prevents him from remaining in this mode for too long as a tactic to hide his Terror Radius.
  • Drawing Mode Drawing Time Warning threshold: at 70 %

Patrol Path Camera:

NOTE: while drawing a Patrol Path, the position of the camera (the Green Orb) is considered to be the location of The Knight, not where his body is physically located.

  • Maximum Yaw input: 290 °
    • Yaw is the turning motion of the camera.

DLC

Main article: Downloadable Content


The Knight is part of 2 DLCs:


Change Log

Patch 6.4.2

  • Buff: Guards damaging Generators now also apply the immediate default Regression penalty of -2.5 %, instead of only activating the Generator's Regression state as they did before.

Patch 6.5.0

  • Buff: doubled the Regression penalty when using a Guard to damage a Generator to -5 %.
  • Buff: the orb that indicates the location of The Knight while drawing a Patrol Path will shrink over time and disappear completely after 10 metres.
  • Buff: When drawing a Patrol Path longer than 10 metres, The Knight will gain the HasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects hasteIconStatusEffects haste Status Effect with the duration dependent on the length of the Patrol Path.
  • Buff: Guards will move to the position where they spotted a Survivor and start a Hunt faster if a Patrol Path is longer than 10 metres.
  • Nerf: added a time limit of 10 seconds to drawing a Patrol Path.
    • This change was motivated by some Knight players using his Power to hide his Terror Radius for extended periods of time, especially when near a hooked Survivor.

Patch 8.1.0

  • Rework: Reworked Guardia Compagnia to give more versatility between The Knight and his Guards.
    • Buff: reduced the Breaking time of all Guards:
      • Reduced it for The Carnifex from 2 seconds to 1.8 seconds.
      • Reduced it for The Jailer/Assassin from 6 seconds to 5 seconds.
    • Buff: halved the Expansion duration of a Guard's Detection radius from 1 second to 0.5 seconds.
    • Buff: increased the Detection radius of all Guards:
      • Increased it for The Jailer from 14 metres to 16 metres.
      • Increased it for The Carnifex/Assassin from 8 metres to 10 metres.
    • Buff: granted the ability to manually swap between Guards rather than summoning them in their standard rotation.
    • Buff: added a positive multiplier to the Hunt duration based on Path length, increasing the Hunt time by a factor of up to x1.5.
    • Buff: added a positive multiplier to the Spawn time of the Standards based on the length of the Patrol Paths, increasing the Spawn time by a factor of up to x2.
      • This change helps taking advantage of the Hunt duration multiplier.
    • QoL: reduced the camera push distance from 160 cm to 80 cm.
      • This allows The Knight to place Guards in tighter spaces.
    • QoL: allows The Knight to cancel a Patrol Path before a Guard is summoned.
    • Nerf: Patrol Paths now have a minimum length of 10 metres.
      • This change prevents The Knight from placing Guards in a single location without the Guard moving.
      • This nerf does not affect a Guard completing an Order in a Patrol Path that is less than 10 metres in length.
    • Nerf: added a negative multiplier to the Hunt duration based on proximity to The Knight, reducing the Hunt time by a factor of x3 if The Knight is within 8 metres of his Guard.
    • Nerf: adjusted the ability of Guards to detect Survivors, reducing the possibility of them being detected through solid walls.
    • Nerf: added a Cool-down after a Guard completes an Order of any kind before a new Guard can be summoned.
    • Change: swapped the Hunt durations and Standard spawn times between The Carnifex and The Jailer to make the latter a more valid choice:
      • Reduced the base Hunt duration of The Carnifex from 24 seconds to 12 seconds.
      • Increased the base Hunt duration of The Jailer from 12 seconds to 24 seconds.
      • Reduced the Standard spawn time of The Carnifex from 10 seconds to 5 seconds.
      • Increased the Standard spawn time of The Jailer from 5 seconds to 10 seconds.
    • Change: received an Add-on Pass, reworking several Add-ons.

Trivia

  • The Knight was originally a Hungarian slave, but was eventually granted freedom and a knighthood for his bravery in battle as a soldier.
  • The Carnifex was originally called "The Executioner", according to the Power icon's file name.
    This was likely changed to use the Latin terminology to avoid confusion with the actual Killer The ExecutionerIconHelpLoading walesIconHelpLoading walesIconHelpLoading wales.
  • The Knight, unlike other average height Killers, does not hoist himself through WindowIconHelp windowIconHelp windowIconHelp window vaults, but rather steps through them in the same manner as tall Killers do.

Voice Actors

  • The Knight shares his voice actor, Misha Standjofski, with one of the many pained, wailing voices that can be heard during Nightfall when facing The DredgeIconHelpLoading dredgeIconHelpLoading dredgeIconHelpLoading dredge and William Birkin.
  • The Carnifex shares his voice actor, David A.B., with the Male Zombie when facing The NemesisIconHelpLoading nemesisIconHelpLoading nemesisIconHelpLoading nemesis.

Patrol Path

  • When The Knight is drawing the Patrol Path, Survivors can see the current position of The Knight's free-floating camera represented as a green orb moving about the Trial Grounds, but only if the drawn Path is shorter than 10 metres, after which it becomes invisible to Survivors.
  • The green orb will emit the same stinger sound effect Killers have when starting to move after having stood still for a while, if The Knight has been standing still long enough to be considered stationary before he enters the Guard Summon mode.
  • The green orb represents The Knight's actual location in the game world, rather than his visible, physical one.
    This behaviour is analogous to The SpiritIconHelpLoading spiritIconHelpLoading spiritIconHelpLoading spirit while Phase Walking, with the phase-walking Spirit representing the green orb, and her Husk representing the kneeling Knight.
    • For The Knight, this behaviour used to have implications on Perks such as Make Your ChoiceIconPerks makeYourChoiceIconPerks makeYourChoiceIconPerks makeYourChoice or Hex: Devour HopeIconPerks hexDevourHopeIconPerks hexDevourHopeIconPerks hexDevourHope, which have distance-related activation conditions and would activate based on the location of the green orb, rather than The Knight's "Husk".
    • For balancing purposes, this behaviour was deemed a "bug" and was remedied with Patch 6.4.2.

Guards

  • Each Guard is represented by a unique Power icon, meaning that the Power icon tells The Knight which particular Guard will be summoned next.
  • That symbol is also shown as a green hologram floating above The Knight's left arm (which controls his Power).
    • As the hologram is also visible to Survivors, attentive Survivor can see it and know which Guard he will summon next as well.

Weapon

  • The Knight's Weapon is a Claymore, a Scottish variant of the late medieval two-handed sword and one of the most recognisable types of swords in popular culture.
    • The Knight accurately uses both hands to wield this Weapon.
  • While carrying a Survivor on his shoulder, The Knight is physically unable to wield the sword with both hands.
    • To adjust for this, the Developers created a unique animation for attacking while carrying, having The Knight carry the sword at the hilt and hitting Survivors with its pommel (the tip of the hilt) by thrusting it forwards.

Standard

  • A Standard is a special form of a flag, whose use dates back to ancient times to mark locations for troops on a battlefield.

The Faithful Three

  • The Knight had three loyal followers that formed his pack known as "The Faithful Three":
    • Alejandro Santiago (The Jailer), who apprenticed with the Guardia Compagnia's Armourer.
    • Durkos Malecek (The Assassin), who showed an aptitude for stealth and silent kills.
    • Sander Rault (The Carnifex), who matched Tarhos in size and strength, and wielded a massive Battle Axe.

Name

  • "Tarhos" is a Hungarian given name.
  • "Kovács" (anglicised as "Kovach") is the Hungarian word for "Forger" or "Smith" and is the Hungarian equivalent to the common English last name "Smith", which denotes the profession.
  • "Carnifex" is the Latin word for "Butcher", but was also used in Ancient Rome to refer to an executioner.
    • The connection to the Roman terminology is also evidenced by the fact that The Carnifex is referred to as The Executioner in the game files.
