Trained to be an elite non-noble cavalry unit to reinforce the small unit of cavalry forces of The Kingdom of Sarleon, the common men of Marleons and its surrounding land are trained by Duke Aelfwine, lord of Marleons to assist the Order of the Lion to fight for their city.
Wearing a sallet, mail surcoat and riding on a heavily armored hunter, they can be commonly seen in the midst of a cavalry charge along with the Sarleon Knight and Knights of the Lion, with lances, morningstars and Sarleon Knight Longsword in hand. All of them also carry kite shields to defend from enemy attacks. Their hunters enable them to use their lances to great effect, being much faster than the warhorses and chargers used by the knights. Their longswords and morningstars also deal extremely heavy damage.
They make an excellent and dangerous force when complemented with knights. However, they are easily taken out by pikes, halberds and ranged fire. Whenever you are facing them, try to keep them away from your archers or crossbowmen or expect to take some casualties.
The city of Marleons will add to the garrison these knights periodically to protect their city. They are Sarleon's unique Special troop. They can be captured and recruited from prisoners sacks, as mentioned before, they are Duke Aelfwine's household troop, meaning he will field a big number of these.
