Bors is extremely fond of the color black. Everything from his clothes to his armor to his horse is black. Because of this, he does not stand out on the battlefield. The enemy armies do not even consider him a Knight of the Round Table. Yet he feels his strongest suit is not offense, but defense. He takes the full brunt of the opposition's blow so his comrades may retaliate in full, making him the unsung hero of the Knights.

A knight is a person granted an honorary title of knighthood by a monarch or other political leader for service to the Monarch or country, especially in a military capacity. Historically, in Europe, knighthood has been conferred upon mounted warriors. During the High Middle Ages, knighthood was considered a class of lower nobility. By the Late Middle Ages, the rank had become associated with the ideals of chivalry, a code of conduct for the perfect courtly Christian warrior. Often, a knight was a vassal who served as a fighter for a lord, with payment in the form of land holdings. The lords trusted the knights, who were skilled in battle on horseback. Since the early modern period, the title of knight is purely honorific, usually bestowed by a monarch, as in the British honours system, often for non-military service to the country.
