The Red Knight is the Faerûnian deity of strategy and battle tactics in Ed Greenwood's Forgotten Realms fictional world of Abeir-Toril. Her dogma dictates the use of careful tactics in battle to achieve victory, under the belief that sound strategy is the best way to win a battle with the most favorable outcome.
The Red Knight is worshiped by generals, tacticians, lawful-minded warriors, and several more war-minded paladins.
The Red Knight looks to Tempus as a father figure and it is only he who knows her true name. If anyone else discovered this they would gain insight into every strategy and every war plan in all of Faerun.
A cleric of hers is encountered in the game Icewind Dale II, who states that he is a follower of the new goddess known as the Red knight. This details that she has only been a deity for a few short centuries.
