Why do Pegasus knights wear armor?

Gameplay =/= Story.

You don't just go into battle without armor, regardless if you can't take a hit or not.

Tell that to anyone who has played Demon's Souls.

Consider it this way. If they didn't wear armor, how much lower would their defense be?

The hard, sturdy armor protects them from OHKs from those numerous arrows trying to pierce the rider and the pegasus. Oh wait...

They usually can't take a hit worth ****.

So you propose they fight with even less protection? There's a flaw in your line of thinking somewhere...

The preceding were my own opinions and while I will stand and defend them, I always do my best to give both sides of any discussion a fair chance.

If their defense is like that wih armor on, imagine what it is like without it!

I figure that Pegasus Knights probably go through significant training in ground fighting before they're issued a pegasus. If they do survive a fall, or are caught without a mount, a little armor is better than nothing.

Also worth noting is that the armor they wear is not very thick, and probably not very heavy: you don't need much to stop an arrow at the top of its flight, which is good because there's only so much that a pegasus can carry (this last is why the Pegasus Knights only recruit women of relatively slight build: they're lighter than men). But although their armor is light, it's too restrictive to put on the pegasus, which becomes the point of weakness: a 200-foot fall will kill you no matter how much armor you're wearing.
