"An enigmatic wanderer who descends into Hallownest carrying only a broken nail to fend off foes."
Information & Appearance
The Knight is an spec, in reference to the protagonist in the highly-appraised game Hollow Knight.
In the game, The Knight is an discarded Vessel. They are the child of the Pale King and the White Lady, born in the Abyss with Void inside their shell. Hornet, another Hollow Knight character, is the Knight's sister through their shared father. Like the rest of their Vessel siblings, the Knight is gender-less. It looks like a small elf, with white horns and black eyes. It also has a white nail on its back.
I suggest you play the actual game. It's very good.
- 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.

Some stands cannot hurt the Knight (might be a true damage thing).
There is also a Geo meter in this picture, you can get geo from Primal Aspids that spawn around the map.
You get more Soul from players than dummies.
E+LMB always trips your opponent.
It's also CONFIRMED that this spec will get more moves... hold on tight!
You can completely DISABLE ALL MOMENTUM with C.
In the future, to make the Knight more powerful, you will need to obtain "charms". Charms are sort of like boosts, that can help you in gameplay. More info on these below.
Alu, an developer, informed us the following about the things coming to The Knight.
Howling Wraiths and Desolate Dive. Howling Wraiths is an projectile facing upward, and Desolate Dive is sort of like an ground-pound.
'Shade' variant of existing spells. Basically, they get stronger with the Shade variant.
'Geo' obtained by killing enemies originating from Hollow Knight. Currently, there is only the Aspid for this.
Gain more Masks (health points) from doing challenges around the map.
Up to 9 Masks (11 with charms) can be obtained.
40+ new Charms to collect. Each Charm can be used to add a passive ability to your knight.
Charms can be bought from special shops using Geo or earned by killing players with certain specs/stands.
Charms use Notches, a system of limiting them, and each charm has a different Notch Cost.
Up to 11 Notches can be obtained.
Allegedly, there was an Shade Knight reskin given out to players with the "Embrace the Void" achievement on the actual Hollow Knight game. However, the reskin is no longer obtainable and probably won't be for a long time.
