This unit is from the Era of Chaos. Its coding and art were done by the various people who created the Era of Chaos.

The ancient elvish lords may come back to this world in times of great need, to lead their people to glory once again. When attacking, they sing a chilling death chant, which can freeze in terror their oponents; this has been known to have caused a fair number of defeats at the hands of elven armies, and to suddenly turn the fight in favor of them, when victory was close to be achieved by those who dare oppose the almighty lords of the forests.

Special Notes: Spirits have very unusual resistances to damage, and move quite slowly over open water. During battle, this unit can drain life from victims to renew its own health. This unit’s arcane attack deals tremendous damage to magical creatures, and even some to mundane creatures. The terror skill of this unit scares enemy units next to it so they deal less damage in combat, though this only applies to units of lower or equal level. This unit will regenerate 5 HP per turn in forest or mushroom grove terrains.
