HistoryEdit

Silent Knight' is a young man named Brian Kent, living in 6th Century England.

At a jousting tournament, the evil Sir Oswald Bane killed Brian's father Sir Edwin, claiming it to be an accident. Before he died, Edwin, a feudal lord, instructed his son to continue his rule and look after the people. Sir Oswald heard this and set Brian under the knightly training of Sir Grot, a friend of Edwin's. Brian excelled at his lessons, but fearing that Sir Oswald would kill him if the boy became too good, Grot publicly humiliated him as an oaf.

While looking for one of Sir Oswald's prized hawks in the Forest Perilous, Brian found a trunk with a suit of silver armor, a sword, a red helmet and shield. When he first wore the armor, he discovered that it was a perfect fit. He then heard travelers being threatened by Sir Oswald's men-at-arms, and came to their aid, defeating the soldiers without uttering a word. When asked his name, he stayed silent to prevent the soldiers from identifying him to Sir Oswald. Hence, he became known as "the Silent Knight".

He kept the armor hidden in the Forest Perilous, and hid his secret even from Sir Grot. As well, Lady Celia who loved the Silent Knight never did suspect that he was the seemingly dull, Brian Kent.

The Silent Knight also had adventures involving King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. He also met the evil sorceress Morgaine le Fey.

NotesEdit

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-Two era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985-86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
  • Though never clearly indicated, it has been suggested that Superman (through his adoptive family) is a direct descendant of Sir Brian Kent.[1]
