The Dread Legion, led by Maltise, is not your average Snake Cult army. The typical weak Snake Cult units are not present here. In addition to scores of Serpent Priestesses and Anaconda Knights, Maltise brings zombies to the field, likely corrupted and devoured by snakes. It is rumoured that the Dread Legion is actually the elite Third Legion sent by the Baccus Empire to stop the Snake Cult but was never heard from again.
Maltise can be captured. She can be ransomed for a Qualis gem, 100,000 denars, the secrets to making several pieces of armor (Maltise Asp Armor, Snake Priestess Armor, Dread Legion Armor and Anaconda Knight Armor) or if told to leave Pendor forever, she will give you her armor (Maltise Asp Armor).
The Dread Legion ranges between 401-1201 soldiers, and consists of the following:
- 100-200 Serpent Priestesses
- 100-400 Anaconda Knights
- 100-400 Dread Legion Infantry
- 100-200 Devoured
