The Imperial Knights

The Imperial Knights, formally the Knights of the Empire, are an order of Force-practitioners loyal to the Empire established around 130 ABY. They are fully trained in the ways of the Force. Originally they rejected the dark side of the Force, but did not strictly follow the light side either, today there are many philosophies within the Knights, and those devoted to the dark-side and light-side are found coexisting. While the influence of the dark-siders is growing, they are viewed as Gray by the Jedi Order.

The Imperial Knights swear loyalty to their Emperor, serving the Force as embodied by him. It is the code of the Knights that if the Emperor ever falls to the dark side, it is the duty of the Imperial Knights to either remove him or bring him back to the light, as ultimately, it is the Force that they owed their allegiance to. However, if this directive would be adhered to in a modern climate is untested.

Following the Fel Empire's displacement by Darth Krayt in 130 ABY, the Imperial Knights fled from the capital with their Emperor, becoming a part of his Empire-in-exile. By 137 ABY, several Imperial Knights were being routinely sent on missions by Roan Fel, as he sought to establish alliances with both the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances and the Jedi Order. They were often on the front lines of the Anti-Sith Insurgency, battling Darth Krayt's forces on such planets as Vendaxa, Mon Calamari, and Had Abbadon.
