Black Knights, also known as the Kinshra, are human warriors found mainly in their fortress. They are central to the Black Knights' Fortress quest.

Once Wanted! has been completed, Black Knights can be slain in order to raise the player's White Knight rank. As their rank gets higher, they can purchase more white equipment.
