Grey Knight[edit]

a hooded figure moves quickly across the battlefield, he points to a Hezrou and charges a blow with his sword, when the monster attacks the warrior he becomes a shadow and the monster attack misses, the warrior disappears and then reappears only a few moments behind the demon, too late to notice, the monster is the pierced in the chest and lightning is released from the sword, killing the creature.

meanwhile a glorious knight in dull armor is holding up against a barbed devil, after delivering a large number of blows he is surprised by a lethal attack, but before falling he channels all his strength to unleash a mighty attack, which destroys completely the monstrosity in front of him and then get up again.

not far away a knight with a skull-shaped helmet is surrounded by a group of imps, when the creatures start running towards him he slams the halberd to the ground and starts praying, the imps attack him several times, but no attack seems to take effect, then a shock wave sends the imps flying away, the chaplain closes his eyes and begins to concentrate and he manifests a psychic wave, all the heads of his opponents burst in a shower of blood.

Grey Knight are selected only from the human that can use their mind to connect with the warp: a mystical plain of existencem where time and space are only a name and where you can find Chaos in its purest form. Grey Knight once served the Imperium of Man, an enormus empire from another world, their role is to kill all of the warp spawn: demon, undead and all of monstrosity that treaten humanity. But these days is almost impossible to find a Grey Knight, since the fall of the empire only few are alive, they still serve the Emperor Will and worn armor with purity seal rappresenting old prayers and litanies, such as: "The warrior faith is an impenetrable shield and the mightiest of the sword" found on the armor of a dead body near a skeleton of a dragolich. Grey Knight were created to defende humanity, and so will be till the end of time.
