If the knight can reach his achilles tendon, he can kill 'im. Cut one or preferably both, then go to town.

Cut the back of the knee, then the tendon in the loin, then go to town

I would argue the opposite: playing a character who's wealthy, noble or in a position of power (assuming your standard fantasy setting) is easier to justify than some random commoner, for multiple reasons.
>The PCs need to afford arms, armor, adventuring gear and/or magical training. These things can get very expensive, with late medieval full plate armor being more or less comparable to a modern house in terms of value relative to the times
>These PCs will often recieve their quests from important people like kings and high priests. Who do you think a king is more likely to trust with such sensitive affairs as the fate of his realm or the life of his daughter, someone from the warrior nobility or some randum schmuck? A well connected merchant's son the king may perhaps even know personally, or some filthy peasant who smells of poverty and failed harvests?
>By D&D WBL charts, even a level 1 character is significantly wealthier than even whatever passes for a 'middle class' in that setting
>In terms of rewards, it would be less controversial for a noble or even a rich merchant to be rewarded with land and titles than some commoner
In my eyes you'd have a harder time trying to justify playing a 'normal' character. If you're afraid of these characters gaining too much power, either make the nobles foreigners or make them lower nobility. By which I mean that the PCs father only rules one incredibly shitty city in the armpit of the realm, and even then the PC is his fifth son so he will almost certainly not inherit.
