OOC: Our new player, I presume? 

Justin answers the stranger "I hope so, as your only other options locally are some royally pissed off fairies and the armed forces of Lord Splynncryth. And to offer a small, helpful correction, the female form of Knight is Dame. Lady is a lower rank." 

In a lowered tone aside to Alex "He's lucky we know what a white flag is, that's not multiversally adopted. In some places, that's how you declare a blood feud." 

OOC: Calling someone a title below their rank can be an insult. A mixed greeting like that can be as well. I mean, would you address a gathering of armed individuals as "Gentlemen and Whores"? Lady equates to Gentleman, not Knight. A Gentleman is a non-noble of wealth, a step below a Squire. Even the poorest Knight stands two social steps (or more, depending on local structures) above a Gentleman (and what is two steps below a Gentleman? A criminal).
