From D&D Wiki
Knight of the Anima
|“||Yes, most of my brother knights ride horses,...but why ride a horse when you can ride a bear!||”|
|—,, Baert, Bear Knight|
Knights of the Anima are a mix of druid, barbarian, ranger, and paladin. A code of honor, a distinct connection with an animal, an instinctive rage, these are what make a Knight of the Anima. A knight may choose any animal as his mount assuming it is capable of bearing him. His abilities and progression are based on his mount just as his mount is a reflection of his inner self.

If you're a rider who wants to ride something besides a horse, appeals to paladins, druids, rangers and some barbarians, Cha is the foremost ability as it determines many of your mount related abilities, your secondary ability largely depends on the animal you choose as your mount.
