现在很少有人还会记起"九圣灵骑士",但在他们存在的那个时代,"九圣灵骑士"的名声却是响誉整个Cyrodiil行省——事实上,是整个帝国.在 Septim帝国建立初期的一个短时间内,"九圣灵骑士"旗下的冒险者们是这片大陆的代言人.但是他们那极高的名望却被后来发生的"Red Diamond(红钻石)"之战给吞噬了.今天,他们的公会所在地点也随风遁入了历史的尘埃之中.

"九圣灵骑士"是在第3纪元的111年被Amiel Lannus爵士所建立的,在此之前发生的"岛屿之战"中他表现英勇.这个公会的首要目的就是找回一位传奇十字军英雄的遗物——-Pelinal Whitestrake的武器和盔甲,这些装备在几千年中都不为人所知.就这样在三纪元的第一世纪,在大陆上充满乐观和雄心的氛围下"九圣灵骑士"正式诞生了.那个时候正是Tamriel大陆有史以来的第一次统一以及和平的降临.什么事都有可能发生.

Amiel爵士后来带领着公会的骑士们对抗居住在Elynglenn的Wyrm(这条恶龙在第一纪元之后沉默了许久又再度出现)并找回了古代十字军英雄的胸甲,这件事也使得骑士们建立了自己最早的名望.很快,那时全帝国最好的骑士都聚集在一起并加入这个新建立的公会,位于Cyrodiil行省西Weald 的公会所在地也成为了吸引各路英雄到来的一块磁石."九圣灵骑士"也因此成为了帝国的焦点.特别是当Colovia地区最有名望贵族的后代Berich Vlindrel加入了公会以后,"九圣灵骑士"当之无愧地成为了整个帝国最有名望的骑士公会.在接下来的很短的时期内,骑士们又找回了三件十字军英雄的遗物.在那时,公会中每个人的名望都已经达到了一个新的高度.没有人会怀疑他们最终是否能找回所有十字军英雄的八件遗物.

但非常遗憾的是,骑士们在早期的许诺随着"Red Diamond(红钻石)"之战的爆发最终没能实现.从3纪元的121年开始,这场战争就使帝国分裂并陷入了重重内战之中.在战争爆发的初期,Amiel 爵士努力让自己公会里的骑士们不介入到战争中去.但这个有着众多成就的骑士在此时却失败了,因为公会里的骑士们大多都来自帝国各地的贵族或是皇室家庭,而他们的家族现在正站在各自的阵营里展开着血腥的内战.很明显,Berich爵士是第一个离开公会的人.在离开公会后他便加入了Cephorus的阵营,随他而去的还有古十字军英雄的长剑和护胫甲.在这以后很短的日子里,其他骑士也相继离开了公会并加入了各自支持着的阵营进行内战.

虽然公会的建立充满了荣誉的光芒但它末落的色彩也同样是非常的暗淡.在3纪元127年,Cephorus最终获得了内战的胜利,Berich Vlindrel也成为了胜利一方的有功之臣.据说后来就是他在幕后颁布了于3纪元131年解散"九圣灵骑士"的法案,尽管这个说法目前看来不一定可靠. 但是不管Amiel爵士的如何努力,这个公会在这场残酷的内战后就再也没有被恢复了.

那些被"九圣灵骑士"找回的十字军英雄的遗物现在都在哪呢?长剑和护胫甲都被Berich爵士带走了,但人们并不知道它们现在被安放在哪里.那双手套则躺在Chorrol的Stendarr教堂内,Casimir爵士在3纪元139年的时候曾在那不理智地杀死了一位乞丐,之后那双手套就从他的身上落下并再也不能被人力所移动.十字军胸甲的存放地点也随着Amiel爵士的命运一同消失在历史的长河之中.Amiel爵士曾在3纪元的150年被一位旅者发现在旧骑士公会里,那时他还活着.

同样,"九圣灵骑士"也在历史河流的冲刷下渐渐地褪去了身上的色彩….

新手注释:

The Knights of the Nine
by Karoline of Solitude
The founding and breakup of the original Knights of the Nine


Few people now remember the Knights of the Nine, but in their time, they were famous throughout Cyrodiil -- indeed, throughout the Empire. For a brief period in the early days of the Septim Empire, their adventures were the talk of the land. But their renown, as with so much else, was swallowed up by the War of the Red Diamond, and today even the location of their priory house has been lost to history.
The Knights were founded by Sir Amiel Lannus in 3E 111, following his heroic turn in the War of the Isle, with the high purpose of recovering the legendary Crusader's Relics, the weapons and armor of Pelinal Whitestrake which have been lost for thousands of years. They were born out of the sense of optimism and ambition that characterised the first century of the Third Era. Tamriel was united and at peace for the first time in many centuries. Nothing was impossible.
The fame of the knights was established early on when Sir Amiel led them against the Wyrm of Elynglenn to recover the Cuirass of the Crusader, which had not been seen since the First Era. Soon, the greatest knights of the day were lining up to join the new order, and the Priory of the Nine in the West Weald of Cyrodiil became a magnet for the great and the good. The Knights were the toast of the Empire. When Berich Vlindrel joined the order, the scion of one of the great noble families of Colovia, it was clear that the Knights of the Nine had become the Empire's mostprestigous [sic] knightly order. In relatively short order, the Knights reclaimed three more Relics, and their fame soared to new heights with each one. No one doubted that they would eventually succeed in their quest to recover all eight Relics.
Sadly, this early promise of the Knights did not survive the ravages of the War of the Red Diamond, which tore apart the Empire beginning in 3E 121. At first, it seems that Sir Amiel was able to keep his knights out of the war. But the very success of the Knights undermined this, as many of the Knights came from important families from across the Empire which were lining up on either side of the bloody civil war. Sir Berich was apparently the first to leave the Order to join the war on the side of Cephorus, carrying the Sword and Greaves of the Crusader into battle with him. Many other knights seem to have left the Order shortly after this, some joining the war on one side or the other.
The end of the order was as ignomonious [sic] as its beginning was glorious. Following the victory of Cephorus in 3E 127, Berich Vlindrel became an important figure on the winning side. It seems likely that he was behind the Imperial decree which officially dissolved the Knights of the Nine in 3E 131, although in truth this was little more than a formality -- despite Sir Amiel's best efforts, the order had never recovered from the bitterness of the civil war.
What happened to the various Relics originally recovered by the Knights of the Nine? The Sword and the Greaves went with Sir Berich, but where he bestowed them is unknown. The Gauntlets famously lie immovable on the floor of the Chapel of Stendarr in Chorrol, where Sir Casimir left them after his disgraceful murder of a beggar in 3E 139. The location of the Cuirass is a mystery, lost to history along with the eventual fate of Sir Amiel, who was last reported still living alone in the empty Priory of the Nine by a passing traveler in 3E 150. And so the Knights of the Nine faded away into history.
