The Knight Commander (full title: Knight Commander of the Danish Templar Army, or simplified title: Commander of The Army) was a position granted to the leader of the Danish Templar Army – and later a title worn by a member of the Dane-Norwegian Templar Council.
When The Army was first established around the 1270s, the Knight Commander was chosen by the most skilled fighter of the Templars' army. The rank garnered a large amount of respect from other members within the Order and indicated individuals who possessed uncommon skill and talent, most often in the arts of fighting, manipulation and strategy. A Knight Commander was meant to not let the Order's reputation fall in a battle with Assassins or other nations.
Today, the Knight Commander are being held by Bodil Laurinzen. She have decided to find a Piece of Eden in ordrer to defend the Templars in any attack – and in this way win over the Assassins in combat.
