The word 'knight' in English and its Japanese cognate 'samurai' both derive from words meaning 'retainer' or 'servant', which places the knight alongside older traditions of cauldron-kin and hearthbands as a fighting man in direct service to a ruler. Thus it would seem sensible for the knight class unit in Erfwordl to be part of a hand picked elite directly responsible to a faction leader.

[edit] Speculation

Some knights appear to be advanced (elite) versions of other troops. Stanley the Tool's Knights were drawn from all the (Hobgobwin) regiments in his (former) empire. Transylvito's Skanks are just a special class of Guard Goyles. It is possible that units of lower classes might be promoted to Knight. Archons do not seem to have a non-elite version and are known to be popped directly as knight-class units.

Perhaps Knights are always able to ride Mounts (thus the name Knight). If so, they must always be advanced forms of non-Heavy Units, and must not become Heavy Units when they become Knights. If so, then there would be no such thing as a Twoll Knight, for instance. Normally Infantry, by definition, fights on foot, yet we saw some of Stanley's Hobgobwin Knights ride on Dwagons. So it is possible that Infantry are unable to use Mounts, while Knights and Warlords may do so.

One recent exception to Knights riding mounts is in the case of the Hobgobwin Heavy Knights, such as Fud. They've been confirmed to retain their class upon promotion to Heavy Unit
