Specter Knight is one of eight Knights of "The Order of No Quarter" who serves the Enchantress. He is the boss of The Lich Yard.
Specter Knight is a thoroughly cruel Knight, showing sheer coldness towards his enemies, as well somewhat sarcastic. His cause of death has not yet been revealed. He shows to be thankful to the Enchantress, who, according to him and his official bio, brought him back from the dead.
When about to face Shovel Knight, he taunts him with the memory of Shield Knight by insisting she is dead. Before battling Plague Knight, he is quick to mock him for his cowardice, being the only one able to reduce Plague Knight to stunned silence. Whilst many of his comrades acknowledge Shovel Knight's strength to some extent after the Battle Royale, Specter Knight instead affirms his faith in the Enchantress and assures Shovel Knight that he cannot succeed.
