Medieval Spawn real name Sir John of York is a supporting character in the Spawn comics.
Medieval Spawn was both a knight and Hellspawn from the medieval era of 16th century England.
Due to Lord Carnadile's invasion of the Elven world of Faerie, a time portal opened thrusting Medieval Spawn into the Top Cow Universe. When he found Katatrine Godliffie, who recently discovered the Witchblade, under attack, he aided her in fighting off the invading troops. After a short discussion, they agreed to travel to nearby Faerie and vanquish the invading armies.
Upon arriving, they were aided by Achon into infiltrating the castle and battling the Lord Carnale. Katarina removed the invading lord's head and they returned home, successful upon their victory. Spawn returned to his home timeline and left the Top Cow Universe.
