So many vows. They make you swear and swear. Defend the King, obey the King, obey your father, protect the innocent, defend the weak. But what if your father despises the King? What if the King massacres the innocent? It's too much. No matter what you do, you're forsaking one vow or another.
~ Jaime Lannister mocking vows by knights in the Seven Kingdoms.

Dark Knights are Stock Characters of sorts in fiction, especially fantasies.

As their name implies they are often evil or misguided Knights, high-ranking Military people from medieval times or fictional equivalents.

They can also be found in the modern ages but as a title rather than a position and Modern Knights share their medieval counterparts' traditional titles of "Sir" or even "Ma'am".

In some cases Dark Knights can be Arthurian or connected to Imperialists due to stories of King Arthur being set in medieval times or imperialism revolving around an oft-warped form of modern knighthood.
