The Knights Templar, also known as the Temple Knights, are an armed branch of the Church of Glabados in Final Fantasy Tactics led by Folmarv Tengille. Most of them are under the control of or in league with the Lucavi demons, and the others are unaware that they are in fact serving the Lucavi, such as Folmarv's son, Isilud. When Ramza Beoulve is declared a heretic after stumbling onto the Lucavi plot, the Knights Templar do everything in their power to keep Ramza from interfering in their plan to resurrect Ultima.

Despite the failure of most of the Lucavi, three Knights including Folmarv learn the location of the portal to Necrohol of Mullonde, where Saint Ajora Glabados, Ultima's human host, was buried. One of them opens the portal and stays behind to guard it while the other two proceed forward. Ramza arrives and dispatches the first knight, making it through the portal where he kills the second. He then chases Folmarv to the Airship Graveyard, where the Knights Templar Leader transforms into the Lucavi Hashmal in an attempt to sacrifice Ramza to help revive Ultima. Ultimately, however, it is Hashmal that is destined to be a sacrifice as he realizes Ramza is too strong and takes his own life to trigger Ultima's resurrection.

Etymology

The Knights Templar (formally called "Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon") were an actual order of Medieval Knights who fought in the Crusades and later held great power throughout Europe before being forcibly dissolved through violence by Phillip IV of France and his ally Pope Clement V. The actual order of the Knights Templar has been subject to numerous myths and legends, and have been subject to much speculation in pop culture, such as the book The Da Vinci Code.
