Once, a species of beetle became intoxicated by the rare enzymes found in Phoenix droppings. This delicacy was impossible to reach because the Phoenix's domain was fiercely guarded by the Flower Knight and the beetles presented a threat to the natural balance the Flower Knight protects. Over countless generations, the insects evolved into the likeness of a hulking knight to avoid the Flower Knight which sees no threat from feeble humans. Clever and hungry, it savagely hunts for nourishment to fill its massive ball, which also serves as a repulsive weapon.
Resourceful and hungry, this cunning species has evolved a knight's shape to fool booth predators and prey. It rolls a massive resin ball formed from spit used to collect rare feces for its meals.
