Fencers belong to a school of thought that considers the armor most soldiers wear in combat to be their own worst enemy. While armor can only soften a blow, evading it leaves the defender completely unharmed. Being able to reliably dodge any offensive move is a luxury only afforded to the fit of body, and then only to those who endure rigorous training.
Outfitted with only a dagger and saber, fencers are light on their feet and useful in many situations where their armor-bound peers are at a disadvantage. They take relish in dancing circles around troops like heavy infantry, mocking the weight of their full armor.
Special Notes: This unit's skill at skirmishing allows it to ignore enemies' zones of control and thus move unhindered around them.
