A Blackguard is an unholy religious knight who fights in the name of his/her dark deity and does whatever his/her code of honor leads him/her to do. Blackguards are also known to draw upon the arcane energies of their deity and channel it into unholy magic. All Blackguards are expected to be examples of tyrrany and absolute control in the realms and thus scorn the divinity and sacredness of Paladins.


Blackguards are symbols of all that is impure and corrupt and will often go out of their way to purge all purity they come upon within their code given to them by their god. A Blackguard's deity gives him/her special abilities known as "prayers" to aid them in their travels and to purge the world of all good.

Just like Paladins, Blackguards are human only. Though it is possible to find Blackguards of other races but are extremely rare and those specific Blackguards are often referred to as "the worthy".
