Knight of the Chalice Tree.png
Overview

A knight of the Chalice is a member of an elite knightly organization devoted to fighting demons. Motivated by a pious hatred of these creatures that embody the principles of chaos and evil, knights of the Chalice learn tactics and gain special abilities to help them in their crusade.

Knights of the Chalice are often lone crusaders, maintaining only loose connections to their order. NPC knights sometimes gather adventuring bands around themselves for combat support. A knight of the Chalice could become a temporary ally of a player character party while the party is engaged in a campaign against a demon.
