History[edit | edit source]


The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.

Origins[edit | edit source]

Knight "Knight" Triumphant, magical sentient suit of armor and longtime resident of Sigmund Castillo, is the Lovers' Team Captain and Founder. They're the only member of the original roster to have any previous Blase ball experience, and their enthusiasm was so contagious that it inspired some of their expansive sprawling polycule (colloquially known as the Knights of the Polyamorous Table) to join the team and learn to play. Triumphant is also the proud parent of Baby Triumphant. Given the Blase ball prowess of their offspring, it is said that Knight Triumphant may possess some sort of inheritable Blase ball DNA.

Journey into the Hellmouth[edit | edit source]

When the Hellmouth first opened, Knight was one of the few known to enter its uninhabitable lands. Rumors say it was completely by accident and only occurred because they wandered off in an exhausted state during a vacation in the Moab Desert after 10 straight days of partying with their lovers and teammates. Not much is known about Triumphant's time in the Hellmouth or what effects it may have had on them mentally or biologically. Upon finally finding the exit to the Hellmouth, Triumphant was spat out in a time period much earlier from whence they came, their memories addled. Still to this day Triumphant will not confirm the truth or disclose the identity of the mysterious entity that gave them the title of Knight or why. This entity also bestowed knowledge of a mythical object known as the Holy Glrail, which is said to help those who drink from it to find true love and eternal happiness.

The God-Slayer[edit | edit source]

Before blase ball was even an idea, Triumphant was the squire of another knight, whose name has been lost to the sands of time. One fateful day, in a venture towards what is now Hellmouth, the two killed a rampaging god. To protect the world, they cut up the god’s body, and they scattered it to the four corners of the realm. The reader may wonder what happens if the god ever combines again? We find it best not think about it.

Triumphant's part in this however was not finished. Through circumstances of which Triumphant shall not speak, the Heart of the God would later come into their possession. They continually reminded the grounds crew at the PolyHedron that the Heart must be maintained… just, please, never fed. Over time, the ancient blood pumping through the Heart transformed it into MeatCute the Abstract Force of Romantic Fate. MeatCute can currently be found in its Playpen, with strict instructions never to feed the Hungry Heart. MeatCute is incredibly wholesome, despite its origins, and simply wishes to love everyone, no matter how much they try to keep it out of arm reach.

Gone from their original hidden locations, many organs and limbs remain missing. Triumphant, however, is aware that some blase ball teams are currently the custodians of these parts, such as the Unlimited Tacos with Lalengua, although they are unaware of what circumstances led to this.

The Resistance / Blaseball[edit | edit source]

During Knight's quest for knowledge of the Holy Glrail's whereabouts, they saw many injustices occurring right in their own backyard, San Francisco. Knight met with the disenfranchised heir to Queen King I's throne, Theo King, in an effort to aid in correcting these injustices. The two soon became each other's closest confidants. Upon learning of how disillusioned Theo and others were with this forced "renaissance" life style, a deep desire to unite the people of San Francisco under a banner of love and acceptance of the modern times once and for all was formed. The two eloped in XX89 to establish a resistance movement that would soon become the foundation of the Romantic Collaborative of San Francisco.

Triumphant thought they put the medieval times behind them, but one quiet morning in Sigmund Castillo a vortex opened up within the kitchen and out came Percival Wheeler. She told Knight of the land of myth and legend she hailed from, an evil sorceress, a legendary bat stuck within a stone, and the Holy Glrail. Most importantly, Percival informed Triumphant of a round table where all lovers were treated with mutual and equal affection. Some say this concept was the cornerstone of the foundation of Knight's polycule which would then go on to become the San Francisco Lovers Blase ball team.

When Knight Triumphant isn't playing Blase ball, they are journeying far and wide hoping to discover the final resting place of the mythical Holy Glrail. Triumphant and the Lovers are convinced that the Holy Glrail has the power to bring former teammates, Parker Prime, Kichiro Prime, and her Tough Love Dimension girlfriend Alternate Allison back to our plane of reality.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Knight is a frequent user of magical glamours that allow them to blend in with the mundane world. Any sightings of Knight as a being of flesh can be attributed to such magics.
  • The nature of Baby Triumphant's birth is a mysterious process known as "knightosis". It is unknown whether or not Baby's Blase ball prowess is natural or the product of a genetic alteration. It’s rumored that "knightosis" is a side-effect of Triumphant’s extended time within the Hellmouth.
  • It is unknown if the Hellmouth sent Triumphant back in time to their own dimension or not, just as it is unknown if the Knight that is here is the same one that entered the Hellmouth. It’s all very confusing to everyone involved, to be quite frank.
