Description[edit | edit source]
"Hard-hitting cavalry mercenary."
"The Persians were among the first in history to field true 'Heavy' Cavalry - armored horse and riders designed to directly engaged enemy troops rather than stand off and shoot arrows at them. Seen during the Archaemenid Empire (550-330 BCE), the Persia cavalry wore plate armor while the horses wore leather. The Persian armies would eventually be obliterated by Alexander the Great, but for two centuries they dominated a large portion of Asia and North Africa."
