The Cygnus Knights or Knights of Cygnus are a group of protectors built for only one goal: to put an end of the Black Mage's terror and bring peace to Maple World. The Knights are headquartered in the floating island of Ereve, led by their Empress Cygnus and their tactician, Nineheart.
Each Cygnus Knight has a gameplay that focuses on a special mechanic (I.E. Thunder Breaker can link their attacks with one another) that makes each job stands out with one another.
You start off as a Noblesse in the floating island of Ereve undergoing rigorous training from the inhabitants of the island. Upon reaching level 10, you have the choice to become a Dawn Warrior, Thunder Breaker or Wind Archer. (Blaze Wizard and Night Walker are unavailable at the moment.) Like all classes, their max level is at 250. However, unlike other classes, they are able to obtain 4 SP per level until 4th job and are more economical as their 4th job does not require Mastery Books.
With the massive strength and powerful physique, Dawn Warriors vanquish the enemy in close proximity. Powered with the Sun and Moon, they can send a stronger blow to their enemies with burning solar cuts or double their attacking output with the swings of the dark moon.
As expected of any great Magicians, Blaze Wizards posses powerful magic. They can call on Ignis, the spirit of Fire, to fight with them. They can also merge with Ignis to release massive fire magic. Those who always strive to better themselves and are wary of self and enemy can become a Blaze Wizard.
Attacking the enemy from a far, Wind Archers are guided by the spirit of wind. The strength of their bow is blessed with fairy magic and can strike their targets with rapid-fire precision and agility that can be accounted for.
Luck, skill, and a bit of cunning separate the Night Walkers from the rest. Though marked and assisted by the spirit of darkness, Umbra, Night Walkers put great importance in independence, which leads some to learn poison skills. Night Walkers serve justice in places where light does not reach, so those who are willing to serve in the shadows may become a Night Walker.
Having strength and power, Thunder Breakers can send a flurry of pain and destruction to the entire battlefield. A true master of linking their skills, a whole world of combinations is brought upon the Thunder Breaker with endless possibilities to defeat their opponent.

- Cygnus Knights were originally meant to be a spinoff of the Explorer classline with a level cap of 120. It was meant to be an easier alternative to playing your favorite Explorer job until various changes in the game removed the entire purpose of the class.
