I'll keep my friends close... And my enemies closer.
Traitorus is a new character introduced in King of Cards and a supporting character to King Knight. He has his own Joustus card.


Traitorus is the former advisor to King Pridemoor. He betrayed the king and stole the Turn Coat, Treasures icon 400 and a Joustus deck. He then sells the Heirloom for MeritMedal 6 and, after being invited to the Glidewing by King Knight, gives the gold for free and challenges him to a Joustus match. He also shows fear for his former king while there.

At the Turn Coat Course:

Hello, sire. A moment of your time, if I may? I'm King Pridemoor's former advisor, Traitorus.. I've lost faith in the doddering old fool, and I seek a new king. And you look... Hm-hm-hmm!
Every bit
the part. To prove my devotion, I'll give you this pilfered Heirloom. I'm sure King Pridemoor won't notice I stole it! Here, my liege. Have a glimpse. Isn't it a beauty?



Buying his Heirloom:

"Traitorus: I'll await you across the ramparts. Note that this area's magic disables your Shoulder Bash."

At the end of the course

"Traitorus: Well done, your majesty. My faith seems
in your wisdom. King Pridemoor is naught to me now!
"King Knight: I enjoy your way lf thinking, Traitorus! Why don't you join my retinue? Your loyalty will be well-rewarded!"

When first spoken to:

"Traitorus: Hsss... Take these gems. I looted Pridemoor's private vault before I left, and now his riches are yours!"

When spoken to again:

"Traitorus: I bet you'll never guess whose Joustus deck I stole. It was King Pridemoor's!
Let's play!

When spoken to after King Pridemoor is defeated:

"Traitorus: Do mine eyes deceive me? Pridemoor stands right there! I'll keep my friends close... And my enemies closer."


  • The name Traitorus is a play on the word Traitorous which references how he betrayed King Pridemoor.
