Their steeds are lightly armored coursers and warhorses that grant them with speed but offer little protection against blades and arrows. These units fill in a vital gap for any Fierdsvain army as they are the only cavalry force that the Fierdsvain field.

Keep them away from heavy cavalry as they can cut them down with ease.
