In Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776, Forrest Knights are the promoted form of the Free Knight class, wielding Swords as their sole weapon of choice. Their Skill and Speed are superior to those boasted by the Paladin class.
Like all mounted units, Forrest Knights generally have great mobility, although they may be considered slower as compared to other mounted units. Forrest Knights are noted for being the only horseback-mounted unit that is able to navigate across water, a feat that is normally something only Berserkers, Pirates, Thiefs or flying units are able to perform.
This class shares its name with Ike's class from Path of Radiance, but they are unrelated. This is a 2nd Tier mounted class that can use Bows and Swords, whereas the Ranger class from Path of Radiance is a 1st Tier unmounted Lord class that only uses Swords.
