Shields of Thasos
The rise of Thasos to prominence in the years following the Succession War is rightfully credited to the disciplined and well organized Shields. Their willingness to place duty above personal needs verges on religious fervor. To allow an ally to fall under the shadow of their shields is considered worse than death. They are trained in unique heavy infantry tactics, and the core of the Thasoan army is built around them. It is no surprise that they serve as personal guards to King Themarodes. Only right-handed men are considered for this position.Abilities
