The Empire Immortals are some of the finest foot soldiers in Pendor, being more heavily armored and well-trained Legionnaires; some of their training, notably with two-handed weapons, bears similarity to Gladiators as well. If a formation of Immortals can reach the enemy, nothing will withstand them.
Without a doubt, they are one of the most powerful infantry soldiers one can encounter in Pendor, they are masters in the use of swords and throwing spears. Their offensive weapons include the Empire Broadsword and Zweihander. Some may also carry the powerful Empire Immortal Shield. While not all of them pack the signature Empire broadhead spears, those who do often dehorse incoming cavalry with ease. Donning the Empire Immortal Armor for maximum protection, they are swift and deadly, their speed comparable to the D'Shar infantry, and with enough upgrades, may even attack faster than the D'Shar Blademasters. A rank of Empire Immortals will often decimate anything that stands in their way. As their name Immortal suggests, they are extremely difficult to take down.
The empire mortals are a similar version of the Immortal, but weaker, with the main difference that they have a guaranteed shield as they'll never have the Zweihander, the Immortals two-handed sword.
To create a chapter of the Immortals, the player needs to belong to the Empire culture or own Janos, as well as 20,000 denars and a city or castle without a KHO.
Empire Mortals are usually the sons of an existing Immortal, and the strongest of all will take his father's place in the Immortals' legion should his father ever fall in battle or retire; the rest will remain as Mortals.
