| Protected by thick scales, skillful weapon use, and complementary magic, this draconian is a dangerous opponent. Draconian knights specialize in ice magic and necromancy.

Draconian knights are similar to deep elf knights, but with more dangerous spells. They are lightly armored fighters who wield heavy weaponry and occasionally shields, supplemented with the ability to cast powerful Conjurations. Knights are typically generated as black draconians, who can fire a Lightning Bolt.

Tips & Tricks
- In spite of the flavour text, draconian knights are neither especially competent with their weapons or armoured beyond the usual draconian cloak. Their spells, however, are potent enough to be a concern (though less so than any of the pure draconian casters). The difficulty of this foe depends mainly on its breath weapon (determined by its colour) and its randomly-selected spell set.
- Prior to 0.28, classed draconians could randomly generate with varying colours.
- Prior to 0.27, they could cast Ozocubu's Armour, but had a higher base AC to compensate.
- Prior to 0.14, draconian knights had a wider variety of spell sets, with less focus on Ice Magic and Necromancy. Specifically they could have the sets of hell knights, deep elf conjurers, or necromancers.
