"An enigmatic wanderer who descends into Hallownest carrying only a broken nail to fend off foes."


The Knight is a discarded Vessel. They are the child of the Pale King and the White Lady, born in the Abyss with Void inside their shell. Hornet is the Knight's sister through their shared father. Like the rest of their Vessel siblings, the Knight is gender-less.


  • 1st Attainability/Obtainability Way: Finding a Baldur Shell behind the Hollow Knight Memorial Statue, and clicking on it; after clicking on it, a few second's will pass and you'll be teleported into a new server.

Used to be obtainable from sitting on a shrine and clicking on a dark orb, but after that was removed you could obtain it by just clicking on the box at spawn but then it stopped working so now it's unobtainable.


The Knight looks like a small elf, with white horns and black eyes. It also has a white nail on its back.

shade skin is real guys

Charm build just incase you want to beat pantheon of hallownest : Unbreakable/Fragile strength, Unbreakable/Fragile heart, Soul catcher, Mark of Pride, Nailmaster Glory. Change Mark Of Pride to shaman Stone after defeating nightmare king grimm.

Update: The Reskin is no longer obtainable and probably won't be, so if you were trying to beat the Pantheon Of Hallownest still go ahead and try its just you won't get the skin.
