Harald Legion Knight Description
The Harald Legion Knight is a humonguous, bloated knight who sought the dark soul. Their armor sank into the dark with the legion, where their cavities bloated in grotesque displays, never again to fit any ordinarily-shaped body.
They carry a giant gold-decorated curved sword, which sank into the dark with the legion, where their blades were severely corroded.
