Ravenstern Highlanders are specialist infantry of the Kingdom of Ravenstern. Drawn from the nobility of Ravenstern. These men choose to forgo the horses of knighthood and fight with the common Ravenstern soldiers on foot, as elite swordsmen.
You will face them in great numbers if you face Duke Alaric in combat. The Highlanders are foes worthy of respect. They are much more difficult to take down and a mass charge by them can usually allow them to take down foes who outnumber them, but if they're kept broken up by cavalry and/or under a near unending hail of arrows and bolts, they become slightly less threatening.
