Terra Knight[edit]

A newborn child abandoned by society. Toss away into the caves or mountain cliff. Man nor monster wanted this creature. But mother earth had different ideas. 

Terra Knights, unlike any other class do not come from skill, or gifts alone. Terra embraces all forms of life and adores when she is worshiped. The ability to move mountains is no easy task, let alone to create them. But for Terra Knights, champions of the earth, and protector of its well being, can surely come close to it as any mortal can. Becoming one with Mother Earth is not only the greatest gift of all, but also the willpower to hold strong against the forces that oppose her will.

While Terra Knights often have one goal in mind, to serve the earth to their best ability. Some wish to destroy the very forces that take her precious resources for granted, while others wish to slumber until the time is right to emurge. The more corpses, the more nutrients for the soil. The more creatures, the more to tend to the beast and plants that the heavenly mother oversees. There is no true way to serve the earth, but to treat it as yourself.
