When you become a Fallen Knight, you lose your old Knight abilities.Description
As their name says: former knights who turned to the Dark Side. They lost their old skills after the betreyal, but adopted new.... And now, they don't need to follow the Code of Chivalry anymore, so they can use Ranged weapons again.
Now they are wandering. They can work alone, for Keldorn, or in clans. Or they can be simply mercenaries who work for money only.
There are many ways to be excommunicated and become a Fallen Knight.
You can do something which is fodribben by the laws and get exiled, only to find new allies: the Dark Side.
Another way is to ally with the evil yourself, get bribed, etc.
The third way is to become what knights swore oath to destroy: if you become a vampire or a lycantrophe yourself - even by accident - you are immediately exiled and no longer Knight.
