You’re a hero. The Knight in shining armour, there to save the day. How many times have you saved a friend’s ass? You’ve lost count. Point is, you’re real good at it. But you’ve got a problem, sorta.

There’s a Dragon on the loose, now. I’m sure it’s not a big deal, right? Other people have bigger problems to worry about. Stick to what you’re good at: helping people. Even if it means you can’t help yourself.

Self-sacrificing, heroic, caring, and frightened. The Knight is threatened by something powerful and dangerous that they can’t face, in part because they can’t or won’t put themselves first. They could save everyone, but they can’t save themselves.

The Knight is a playbook for Monsterhearts 2e who uses the metaphor of a Dragon to explore problems in their life; their Dragon might literally be a giant fire-breathing lizard, or it might be your concerns around your sexuality and gender identity. But the Knight doesn't actually want to stand toe to toe with their Dragon if there are other people who they can help first.

For more Monsterhearts 2e skins, check out The Hunted, The Goblin, The Mare, The Succubus, The Necromancer, The Caged, The Kelpie, The Seer, The Bogeyman, The Heartless, and The Lost.

This skin was... amazing and poignant, and hitting a bit close to home for me in some ways but still amazing.  The names also were really cool choices; "J.A." did take me a minute, but "Artura" helped me figure it out.  Very awesome.


you're knocking it out of the park with these skins! keep up the good work!


This Skin is just spectacular! It faces down issues in ways I would never have expected while balancing real world issues with urban fantasy issues. Throw whatever modern word for perfection at this Skin you'd like. It has earned it.
