Armor knight DD2

The Armor Knight (also known as the Heavy Knight) is a recurring class in the Disgaea series. Armor Knights are graduates of the Knight Academy and are trained to protect royalty. At the Knight Academy, they are taught the skill, courage, and etiquette needed to become a knight and receive their armor and first position on graduation. While initially a male class, female graduates have rapidly increased in recent years and now greatly out number the men.

Armor Knights are not agile but boast the strongest defense in the Netherworld, which makes them invaluable for any form of combat, from full frontal assaults to defense missions. Despite this, they have a mild personality and see the importance of teamwork.
