- "It was just a little joke. Stupid Daikinis! We didn't want to be knights anyway, did we, Rool?"
"If they're called knights, why are they out in the daytime?"

A knight was any man-at-arms who had a high social rank and who fought while riding, usually wearing armor. The skills of a knight included swordsmanship, archery, and riding. The investiture of a knight included a ritual during which the master of ceremony tapped the knight-elect's shoulder three times with the flat of a sword.
