He was put through training including horse back riding, and how to fight with a sword. He was also taught how to fight and ride while wearing full armor. When the boy reached the age of 15 he became a squire. He would help a knight with his armor and with his horse and anything else the night needed. Once the boy proved he was worthy of becoming a night he was dubbed a night.
