"I am their hope incarnate, their pride, their joy. Yet, if I were to reveal myself to them, I fear they would not accept me. So I will continue my charade, it is the only way to preserve order."
The Golden Knight is considered the greatest warrior in Earth Space, and is the mentor of the Silver Knight. These two shining beacons of hope are the most skilled, most powerful and most dangerous opponents to ever defend Earth Space. In the eyes of the human race, they are a sterling example of what Humanity can achieve through augmentation and training. But the two knights are harboring a secret they cannot reveal to Earth, a secret they have hidden from their comrades. They are not Human, not even partially. If this was ever revealed, Humanity would come to the realization that they are constantly surrounded by more powerful forces, and the paranoia from the Great War could return.
Despite rarely being in Earth Space, the Golden Knight is the single most recognizable icon in Galactic Order lore (in Earth space at least). He appeared at the end of the Great War, a supposed product of splicing Human DNA with Alien DNA, who had his strength boosted not only from that, but from a multitude of ability boosts as well (thus justifying the Galactic Order to use these on any new recruit to massively amplify their abilities), allowing him to almost singlehandedly push back the Alien invasion. Almost all of Humanity views him as their savior, and they believe he can bring them into a new era. But he is not Human. Long story short, he continues to pretend to be to preserve Humanity's hope.
The Golden Knight is a fearsome fighter, and one of the few in the Galactic Order army who can face Aya after she unleashes her powers. Using his massive Lance, and powerful mechanical wings, the Golden Knight is capable of delivering powerful blows from almost any angle. And he is a tactical genius, for even when he is not watching over Earth space, he is always giving advice to his student, who commands the Earth space Galactic Order. The Golden Knight faces against Aya a few times in the war against her, and is one of the few who almost matches her consistently. In the final battle against Nightmare Aya, he kills General Therax in revenge, but is slain by Aya shortly after.
