Merman Hoplite


With their towering shields, the Merman Hoplites form the elite guard of the watery realm. Their powerful armor and rigid discipline allow them to hold a steadfast line in the maelstrom of battle. In times of desperation, they can even do so on land, though not nearly as well as a creature with legs.

Special Notes: The steadiness of this unit reduces damage from some attacks, but only while defending.
