Hm...the main problem that I'd have with "chevalier" (which is a French word that Blood+ creators basically took just for the series, right?) is that it's akin to "knight", which implies that the values of chivalry are associated with the position. fits somewhat, but at the same time, it doesn't because I'd say there's more free will associated with being a knight...

Other terms I've seen used include the ancestor/descendant and sire/offspring pairs, but nothing really captures the master/servant dynamic which Araragi and Kiss Shot have.
