    The imposing presence of Sergeant Knox came to Neverwinter when the Mintarn mercenaries were hired to retake the city following the eruption of Mount Hotenow.

Celeste reached out to her old friend following the catastrophic events at Elturel, hoping the veteran mercenary would join the Champions as they face the greatest foe the Sword Coast has ever seen!

Sgt. Knox is a Tanking & Support Champion who leads from the front, using his Rallying Cry to increase the damage of those behind him.

When you want to add him to your formation, you can swap him with Asharra (Slot 6).

III. Sgt. Knox's Design

Sergeant Knox chooses what is right above all else, even orders. Hailing from Neverwinter along with his companions Celeste and Makos, Sgt. Knox is fiercely loyal to his city. Alphonse Knox is a sergeant in the Neverwinter Guard, and one of Lord Neverember's personal guards. Sgt. Knox was in charge of the defense efforts when Valindra Shadowmantle put Neverwinter under siege.

Sgt. Knox is a solid Tanking and Support Champion even without his Neverwinter Companions: Celeste and Makos. He buffs Champions behind him with Rallying Cry and this can be further enhanced with Explosive Rally. Sgt. Knox has great synergy in formation with Celeste and Makos, with Allies of Convenience buffing both Makos' Dark Blessing and Sgt. Knox's own Rallying Cry. An old war ally, Celeste is used to healing Sgt. Knox, and his thus Blessed by SelÈ—ne, if he is affected by Celeste's Mass Cure Wounds. As a Hero of Neverwinter Sgt. Knox can increase the health of all of his companions, and protect them with his Shield Wall.
