The Alban Knights, also known as the Divine Knights, are a secret organization dedicated to serve Erinn and protect it from otherworldly beings.
Created under Aton Cimeni's will, the Alban Knights use god-like power, Crusader Skills, to vanquish their enemies. This power is fueled by Divine Light, a blessing of Aton Cimeni. They are rivaled by the Prophets, a heretic group of Fomors who worship a foreign god that wishes to destroy Erinn.
The knights were born when Aton Cimeni directly approached a cleric and ordered him to form the organization. The cleric is said to have given two commands to the knights: the first is that Erinn must mature without any outside influence or hindrance, and the second is that any interlopers must be stopped at all costs.
They operate in secrecy as they believe that Erinn's citizens, especially the churches, could misconstrue their actions. As such, the Alban Knights are very subtle and if they do appear they immediately vanish without a trace once their task is complete. Any attempt to compromise the knights is said to result in serious punishment.
Knights are usually only assigned one Crusader Skill due to its immense power. It is said that any mortal attempting to control multiple Crusader Skills will be unable to handle them and die. The Milletian is the only being capable of controlling multiple Crusader Skills due to their Demigod power.
The knights have constantly monitored the Milletian race due to them being otherworldly beings and their infinite growth, and as such know every single action they perform and had done. Although the knights reluctantly allow the Milletian to join them, Kristell warns the Milletian that one of the knights' oaths is to "eradicate any foreign creature who would dare sully this world", and as such may view them as a target.
The Knights are divided into four main squads. Each squad always operates in groups of three. These squads are named after the four Alban Festivals celebrating the solstices and equinoxes.
They operate according to the directions of a Council, whom a Commander of the Alban Knights oversees.
- The Elder : The original founder of the Alban Knights, as well as their first commander. He wields the Black Greatsword.
- Avelin: A female knight who acts as a captain and commanding officer of the Arthuan unit. She is very strict and serious, but also shows deep concern for her comrades. Avelin uses the power of Judgment Blade.
- Altam: A male knight who is introduced as shy at first, but is shown to have a very enthusiastic personality and is also often careless. He idolizes the Milletian, trying to follow in their footsteps. Altam uses the power of Celestial Spike.
- Previous Unnamed Third Knight: Before the events of Generation 19, this person was a part of Avelin's squad. They used the power of Shield of Trust.
- Llywelyn: A male knight who excels at collecting information, and enjoys doing it. He is pragmatic and careful. He can be a bit paranoid about the Milletian, and sometimes arrogant. He knows an awful lot of history on Erinn and the Alban Knights for his age.

Baltane Apprentice Special Unit
- The Ghostly Alban Priests wear a type of Ancient Alban Knights robe similar to that of Kaelic's, who also happens to be in the area. This hints that they likely were from the same unit, possibly Lughnasadh, since that is the one type of robe that is unavailable to players.
