The class of Infernals came into being in the early days of the modern era through the efforts of Ekary Lucoster, the Sinistar, a knight dedicated to Evil. Although the original guild of Infernals was destroyed in a war against the city of Ashtan, the House Maldaathi in the city of Mhaldor continued to carry on the tradition for many centuries, before being destroyed by a foreign construct.

While most uphold the usual knightly virtues of honour and chivalry in combat, most Infernal knights serve Evil before all else. They act as the armoured enforcement arm of their home city of Mhaldor in much the same role as the Paladins of Targossas. With their blackened steel and their red-eyed falcons, the Infernal knights are a vision from the flames of Hell itself when they appear on the battlefield, their eyes gleaming from behind their helms. Infernal knights eschew all weakness in their pursuit of strength and dominance over others. Naturally, most Infernal knights belong to the city of Mhaldor, although a scant few have been known to reside in Ashtan and Hashan as well, seeking other paths.

They possess the traditional knightly skills of Chivalry and Weaponmastery, sharing these with the Runewarden and Paladin classes. Their skill of Oppression, however, is a gift from the God of Evil. Profaning their weapons and armour within the Master Forge of the Infernals, the wielders of Oppression imbue these hellforged armaments with necromantic essence allowing them to exploit and punish the weaknesses of heathens that would oppose Evil's will. The skills of an Infernal are focused on raw, oppressive force and thriving off death and bloodshed.

A fledgling Infernal possesses the skills of Oppression and Weaponmastery, gaining Chivalry upon embracing class.
