34. 18.i - Midnight’s Introduction
Many people are accept the idea that once one has become a fully-fledged member of the Chess Pieces, they start as a Pawn and slowly work their way up into the ranks.
This is a misconception.
The Chess Piece organisation is a very structured one. It chooses permanent ranks for its members. Some are more arduous than others. Pawns do the small jobs: recruiting, the odd mercenary assignment and administration work. Bishops do all the mentoring and teaching, the brainwashing and admonishing. The executing, too.
But Chess Piece Knights were something special.
Knights were members of the Order that were taken in at birth and created into the ultimate soulless murderers.
