Young women who, for whatever reason, have decided to become mercenaries, with the name of scout being applied to them. They are most likely the female equivalent of sellswords, being armed similarly with (usually but not always) a shield, a crossbow/bow, and some one-handed weapon along with being the base of the female mercenary troop tree. They can be acquired the following ways:
- Trained from peasant women you've rescued,
- Hired in taverns (either through their own volition or an intermediary)
- Rescued from prisoner stacks.
