Knights are a caste in the Brotherhood of Steel. They are responsible for manufacturing and repairing the weapons and other pieces of technology. After many years of service and experience, the best knights are promoted to paladins, the pinnacle of the Brotherhood military. The next rank is senior knight, and finally the leader of the order is the head knight. As all paladins are also knights, the head paladin is usually also the head knight. Knights wear mostly power armor. The large gear in the Brotherhood of Steel symbol represents the knights.

In the East Coast and Midwestern divisions, "knight" is a strictly military rank and the scribes are the ones responsible for manufacturing technology there. This rank is most likely the equivalent of real-life junior non-commissioned officers (corporal or sergeant).

OverviewEdit

Knights are members of the Brotherhood that completed training necessary to serve as technicians, engineers and soldiers if the need arises. They are competent fighters and excel in applied sciences, a complicated term for manufacturing weapons, ammunition and maintaining the ever-expanding stock of combat technology in the Brotherhood's bunkers.

After years of service and experience (or showing exceptional talent in combat), the best Knights are promoted to paladins, the pinnacle of the Brotherhood military.

The rogue chapters in the Capital Wasteland and the Midwest, knights are strictly combat personnel, with their non-combat duties folded under the scribes' supervision.

Head knightEdit

The leader of the knight caste and its principal commander, responsible for managing lower ranking knights, assigning duties and providing high level command. As part of the Brotherhood command, he is required to convene with the head paladin, head scribe and the elder council regularly.

The rogue Midwest chapter does not have a head knight, having unified the knight and paladin castes into one. A roughly equivalent rank is called knight commander. Lyons' chapter in the Capital Wasteland has no equivalent rank.

Notable membersEdit

Senior knightEdit

Senior knights are veteran knights promoted to this rank in recognition of their skills and experience. If they are particularly talented in combat, they may be invited to transfer to the paladin caste (loyalist chapters only).

The Midwest chapter retains the name and function of the rank in its unified rank system.

Lyons' chapter instead uses the rank of knight captain, but retains the same function. Knight captains may also be given command of larger squads of knights in the field.

KnightEdit

The basic rank of the knight caste designates a competent soldier and a talented engineer fully capable of performing duties presented to him by the Brotherhood.

The Midwest chapter retains the name and function of the rank in its unified rank system.

Lyons' chapter instead uses the rank of knight sergeant, but retains the same function. The rank gives a command of two to three squads of knights, as well as the command of a base or outpost like the GNR building plaza (which may also include leading nominally higher ranked paladins).

Notable membersEdit

Journeyman knightEdit

A journeyman knight is a member of the Brotherhood's knight caste, who completed the apprenticeship (i.e. advanced training in combat and education in applied sciences) and is fully prepared to undertake his duties, but has not yet been promoted to a "full" knight.

The Midwest chapter uses the name junior knight for an otherwise equivalent rank.

Lyons' chapter's equivalent rank is simply called knight. They are also considered to be battle-ready soldiers.
