For the outdated Road with the same name, see Road of Chivalry

Via Equitum, commonly called as the Path of Chivalry, is one of the paths in the Road of Kings (Via Regalis). The Muslim version of this path is called Tariq el-Harb.

Followers of Via Equitum are sometimes called Paladins.


Those who choose to follow the Path of Chivalry have taken the medieval codes of chivalry to heart in order to quiet their Beast, following rules of honor, truth, and valor. Although Cainites on this Path still feel superior to mortals, they also feel that with the power they have gained is a responsibility to guide and protect the weak.

Among the Paths available to those on the Road of Kings, Via Equitum is the most organized. The Paladins have their own orders of knights and squires, where those new to the ideas of chivalry may be trained and those experienced can easily guide them. Classical knightly pursuits, such as tournaments, are favorite activities of the Paladins, but any opportunity to uphold their knightly duties and oaths will be taken. The ideas of nobility and honor also strongly appeal to the Toreador and Ventrue clans, both of which can be found on this Path in large numbers.
