Chaos Knight minimap icon.png Chaos Knight
The veteran of countless battles on a thousand worlds, Chaos Knight hails from a far upstream plane where the fundamental laws of the universe have found sentient expression. Of all the ancient Fundamentals, he is the oldest and most tireless, endlessly searching out a being he knows only as "The Light." Long ago the Light ventured out from the progenitor realm, in defiance of the first covenant. Now Chaos Knight shifts from plane to plane, always on the hunt to extinguish the Light wherever he finds it. A thousand times he has snuffed out the source, and always he slides into another plane to continue his search anew.

Upon his steed Armageddon he rides, wading into battle with maniacal frenzy, drawing strength from the disorder of the universe. A physical manifestation of chaos itself, in times of need he calls upon other versions of himself from other planes, and together these dark horsemen ride into battle, as unstoppable as any force of nature. Only when the last Light of the world is scoured from existence will the search be ended. Where rides the Chaos Knight, death soon follows.

The Schism[]

Before time even began to flow, the four Fundamentals were once united in the Fundamental Plane where they were all bound to the great Primordial harmony created by the Elder Titan. When his hammer fell into the world, it caused a devastating effect on the early universe that split the Fundamental Plane open. The first Fundamental to escape was Ezalor, the Keeper of the Light minimap icon.png Keeper of the Light. The other Fundamentals followed suit, prompting the Chaos Knight to reunite his escaped siblings. He set his sights on the rogue Fundamental who escaped his respective realm,[6] and it's only a matter of time and space before he comes for the other Fundamentals.[7]


It is strongly hinted that "The Light" Chaos Knight has been trying to hunt down and extinguish is his own brother, Ezalor.[8] He also seeks to hunt down the other escaped Fundamentals to reunite them in the Fundamental Plane.

According to Omniknight minimap icon.png Omniknight, the Omniscience can see all of Chaos Knight, including versions of him from other planes.[9] Omniknight is also hunted by Chaos Knight, whom he considers as his second target.[10]

Chaos Knight is an enemy to the forces of Light, which include the now defunct Golden Lords who are also known as Children of Light. These beings, including their creation Dawnbreaker minimap icon.png Dawnbreaker, sought out the power of Io minimap icon.png Io to bind him.[11] They failed to secure its power and were destroyed while their golem was left inert, leaving the Chaos Knight to continue his ancient pursuit.[12]
