A Knight Bachelor is a man who has been knighted by the monarch but not as a member of one of the organized Orders of Chivalry, making him an English knight of the lowest rank.

Batchelor is a post-positional adjective. The noun is knights.

There is no female counterpart; a woman deserving an honour of this rank is appointed a Dame Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (DBE) instead.

The old knights likely are those who have plundered the world. I like your knighted stars better, esp. the middle one. When she raised her hands and whirled, it is heavenly.
