For a Ridir, success is everything: in combat, duties, and life.
To win is to live!
Success comes in many forms; but one of the most important is visual. The Ridir who achieve the greatest, set themselves apart with every piece of their ensemble and armament. For others to instantly recognise their status, it means they have indeed won.
If you ever fight against the Knights, beware, the light that shines brightest often burns the strongest.
