The Knight's Baron is a leader of a group of horse people called the Knightmares. The elderly horse rules his kingdom within Planet Shanazar from his throne, while his followers capture citizens as "sport". Once he realised that aliens Sonic the Hedgehog and Amy Rose were powerful, he tricked them into going into the forest to destroy the "Black Knight" that plagued their lands. However, the threat happened to be peaceful Kritturs who were trying to defend their land from the Baron. Believing that the Kritturs were the good guys, Amy went back to the Knight's Baron, pretending that Sonic had been killed. Realising that the "Knight" was too powerful, the Baron ordered his troops to never return to the land of the Kritturs.
