They wear golden armour with white surcoats covered in blue circles. They are said to be trapped in the Eternal Tower which shifts from plain to plain until the fan of their king is returned to them. They are searching for this war fan of their king, which has upon it the symbol of nine gold arrows, a blue circle and a white background. This fan was found in Hachiman and suggests that the knights are from an age of Hachiman (or the land on which Hachiman now stands) before the days of the Shogunate. They may even be part of the civilisation that built the ancient roads and dykes that criss cross the Spider Fens. The time they are from was riven with conflict given their battle scars.
