“Sir Griffiths, you take the first and fourth year students to the south wall! I'll lead the second and third year classes to defend the main gate.”
Swordmore Brickland to Griffiths in "In Charge"

Sir Griffiths is a knight and teacher at the Knights' Academy. He gave Clay Moorington his copy of the Knight's Code.


Prior to the series

Griffiths studied at the Knights' Academy, where he was a troublemaker with his best friend Swordmore Brickland.[1] He and Brickland acquired the most amount of demerits between themselves than any student ever.[2]

After graduating, he became a famously brave and honorable knight and stayed as a teacher at the Academy.[2] He was also responsible for giving Clay his copy of the Knight's Code.[3]

The Knight's Code

Clay tells the other Nexo Knights that he gave him his copy of the Knight's Code.

In Charge

He was briefly seen when told by Principal Brickland to defend the south wall with the first and fourth year students.

Weekend at Halbert's

He and Principal Brickland chaperoned the field trip to the Fortrex. He and Brickland pranked each other and the students constantly before the Stone Monsters attacked.

When Jestro and the Stone Monsters attacked, Brickland and Griffiths decided against using Nexo Powers and obtained typical swords and shields from the armory to battle them, which they did successfully before their students helped fend them off.

March of the Colossus

He was seen with the rest of his class when he was preparing to defend Knighton.

The Fall

He joined the other Knights when he was trying to stop the Stone Colossus. He also supervised Jestro and Roberto Arnoldi's community service.


Portrayed with an approachable yet noticeably southern drawl and interjections associated with old western cowboys, Sir Griffiths' actions have been shown to speak louder than his words. Stated to have been a troublemaker in his youth, he has since grown to be a responsible and mature knight. Despite having matured over the years, Griffiths is still has his adolescent fondness for practical jokes and pranks.

Well-known to be an incredibly brave and honorable knight, Griffiths has thus far acted consistently with his reputation. He has shown himself to be willing to go against the odds to protect the children in his care, and buying time for his students to escape from danger. Having also given Clay his copy of the Knight's Code, Griffiths has been depicted as being a rather caring and supportive authority figure towards his students.

Official description

His best friend at the academy is now the principal. Though he went on to become a famously brave and honorable knight, while at the academy, he and "Binky" Brickland accumulated more demerits than any other students.[2]
