Brighter minds than I have said it 'any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.' and I thought...what about vice versa? I then thought perhaps if magic was advanced enough it may take on the trappings of magic. Which is why this knight is in a pseudo technological cockpit. In the back of a cockpit is often machinery. This fellas cockpit has weird devices and rune encrusted magica that powers this baby.
