    How would you translate Holy Warrior?

    Hello!

    How would one translate into Russian, Holy Warrior? Or maybe, Faithful Warrior?
    The context would be someone like Alexander Peresvet.

    Thank you so much.

    Literally 'святой воин'.
    But note that this combination of words is relatively rare thing in Russian because adjective 'святой' here is indistinguishable from noun 'святой (saint)' and saints have weak association with killings. It is preferred to say like 'saint who is known for his battle achievements' or something like that. Alexander Peresvet is called 'воин-монах (monk-warrior)' for example.
    However it can be said so.

    Thank you so much! My friend suggested 'верный воин'
    I'm wondering if that would make sense as well?

    Нет, верный сюда не подходит.
