After hundreds of battles and duels, the survivor learns that victory is not as important as survival. The best warrior is not the one who kills the most enemies, but the one who survives the most battles. Even with fewer kills per battle, the one who lives longer will eventually kill more people than fighters who kill enemies in large numbers. And the secret of survival is proper defence. Even in duels, the winner is the one who does not get hit, not the one who can hit the best.

Those who understand this rule learn to defend extremely well and become so legendary in duels that even kings call them their champions in various occasions, like trials by combat. Sometimes they even adapt to wearing a light armour to protect themselves.

Gameplay notes:
This unit is highly defensive and focused on counterattacks, not on damage.
Advancements are defense-oriented, this unit's potential in avoiding hits is the greatest of all units.

Special Notes: This unit’s skill at skirmishing allows it to ignore enemies’ zones of control and thus move unhindered around them.
