|Knights of Westmarch|
|Appearances|| Storm of Light|
Book of Tyrael (mentioned only)
Pure at heart, during the Darkening of Tristram, the knights closely followed the teachings of the Zakarum. The knights have since become a largely secular order, more focused on defending Westmarch from physical rather than spiritual harm.
The Knights of Westmarch were founded after Rakkis's conquest of Westmarch. In 1263, the knights defeated the forces of King Leoric of Khanduras, who had ordered an invasion of Westmarch. After Mephisto's corruption of the Zakarum Church was revealed, the knights, eager to diminish their connections with such corruption, absorbed the Order of Paladins into their ranks.
