Chevalier Cavalry serve as the Kingdom of Hyrule's heavy cavalry.
These knights excelled at combat on horseback, and their heavy armor made them prime candidates for leading full-on charges against enemy armies. They were rightfully feared across the known land and respected by the Hylian people for their courage.
The heavy armor of these cavalry allowed them to fearlessly plow into enemy armies with a glorious charge. They also carried shield with them, givign them an edge against enemy archers while on the run.
