Glyph Knights were a Sarafan enemy class featured in Blood Omen 2. Glyph Knights were first encountered in Chapter 5:The Sarafan Keep and reappeared in Chapter 10:the Wharves, they were arguably the strongest Sarafan unit encountered by Kain.

Kain first encountered a Glyph Knight in Chapter 5: House of My Enemy, on the roof of the Sarafan Keep, the knight had been made aware of Kain's presence and had been sent to guard Umah[1][BO2]; after dispatching the knight Kain was able to rescue her. Glyph Knights were later seen (and were far more numerous) in Chapter 10: the Wharves, where the heavily guarded stronghold was defended by them[2][BO2].

Glyph Knights were the elite troops of the Sarafan;[2][3] effectively an 'upgrade' of the Sarafan Knights (with whom they share many attacks) and with elements of Glyph guards; they wore red-colored heavy armor that was infused with Glyph Magic and would glow when vampires were near which made it impossible for Kain to sneak up on them.[4][5] They were stronger and more resilient than their Sarafan brothers and frequently carried Broadswords in their right hand and used a special armor plate on their left arms for defense. Like their Sarafan Knights subordinates, Glyph Knights were also immune to grab attack decapitations[BO2]. They apparently watched over the most heavily guarded Sarafan strongholds such as the Sarafan Keep and the Wharves[BO2].[2]
