    With a long lineage dating as far back as the Royal and Senate Guards, the Imperial Knights are the evolution of those roles. Created to serve the Emperor first and foremost, they are the objects of his Justice, and then the followers of his Empire.

    As Grey Jedi, the Imperial Knights have one armour, and one blade, surrendering elements of their personality to serve the Emperor. While not as deep into the Light Side nor Dark Side as either Jedi or Sith, their skills with the lightsaber are seemingly immense.

    I'm very interested in them as an alternate force in the Star Wars Galaxy. Considering the Daothmiri and to a degree Jensaari have been co-opted by the Jedi Order, and the Nightsisters, Sorceror's of Tund and Prophets of the Dark Side became later associated with Sidious's Sith and Dark Jedi Orders, the Imperial Knights represent an entirely separate and active entity in the Galaxy.

    Most of the other Force cults are co-opted, or inactive, like the Fallanassi, Theran Listeners and Aing-Tii Monks.

    The Imperial Knights are active, and here to stay.

    They could die out sooner or later, theoretically speaking.

    It ought to be emphasized, as always, that the Imperial Knights are grey Jedi in the canonical sense--they do not follow the will of the Force. This is, of course, different from the common "Force neutral" term bandied about by fans.

    That is true, indeed, Rhi. But so could the Sith. Or Jedi. Or Mandalorians. Theoretically speaking. But we're fans, not physicists. :p

    Welcome, horsey, nice to see you here. I've never actually seen you use the '[face_dancing]' smilie, mind you.

    I'm pretty sure I used it in the NUS thread the other day...

    I've never used it in the CoW thread? That's surprising. I think you're just not paying attention. :p

    Interesting distinction, GAJ, between the 'neutrals' and Grey. Makes a lot of sense - the Knights don't follow the Will of the Force. Well, Rhi, don't tell the Grey Avengers [face_shhh].

    Well, may as well get started, if 'joining' has already come up.

    I'll come up with a ranking system at some point too.

    Imperial Knights and Masters, indeed. Not so sure about Padawans. Trainee's, me thinks.

    I'll join as the Emperor. :p

    Naturally, I'll defer to the grand master of the order--the one who created the thread.

    Welcome, Madam, of course you can join! Good to hear you're getting into it as much as myself.

    I'm not going to comment on who is Emperor in here, Jello ;)

    Perhaps, perhaps. I'll just have to gain a new avatar...

    *wrinkles nose*

    So, to the Imperial Knights.

    Per Draco's disobedience in recent issues of Legacy, do you believe Loyalty to the Emperor is the same as Obedience to the Emperor?

    I'd say, in the interest of stability as an Imperial Emperor, loose-cannons should really be controlled. Not that what Draco did was a 'bad' thing, it just wasn't what Emperor Fel III ordered.

    Draco is definitely loyal, we know this.
    I think it's glaringly obvious he loves Sia and will do anything to protect her (an echo perhaps of Annie and Padme?:p)
    But I wouldn't say he's the most obedient of the bunch.
    I think his feelings for Sia get in the way of him being obedient to the Emperor, personally.

    I'd love to hear other views on this!

    Just read what you wrote VERY carefully there and you'll notice a flaw in your justification!
