The Knight is dressed in a tunic made from coarse material; he wears a suit of armor (mail) that is stained by rust. He rides a good horse and cares for the horse better than he cares for himself.

The knight is humble and glad to have served his King. He is dressed simply and his gear shows signs of having been used and fought in. He is mentioned first because he is the highest in rank on the trip.
