Have you ever wondered why the Knight wears a cloak? I have too, so I decided to try figuring it out!

This is the first of many Hollow Knight Lore videos to come to my channel. If you enjoy the content provided, please consider subscribing! I plan on making more Hollow Knight content in the future (including live streams), so if you wanna stick around you won't regret it.

Besides that, have a good day, and thank you for watching! :D
