The Looking Glass Knight is a plate-wearing, “specular monstrosity” that awaits challengers at the end of the King’s Passage. King Vendrick's lieutenant, charged with testing the prowess of those who seek to serve in Drangleic's order of royal knights. Ever dedicated to his duty, he continues to await challengers long after Vendrick's disappearance and the kingdom's subsequent collapse. Those who fail the test are remorselessly slaughtered by this enigmatic knight whose face lies hidden behind a cold metal mask.
King Vendrick tried all manner of things to purge the curse that threatened his kingdom ,but when every last attempt failed the King fled through the King’s Passage and never returned. His warrior, the Looking Glass Knight, forever true to the King’s command, stands ready to expunge those who would challenge him. The Looking Glass Knight now serves to prevent any who would follow, from pursuing the runaway king, though now perhaps serves the purpose of guaranteeing a worthy heir to the throne.
The Looking Glass Knight use the King’s Mirror as a shield. This item was likely created in Aldia’s Keep, as we find a number of similar mirrors on the walls.
