This general has a bodyguard of loyal spear-armed cavalry to accompany him onto the field. Armed with spears, these men are shock cavalry, able to deliver a devastating charge attack; they are then well trained enough to fight effectively in continued hand-to-hand combat.

Like all general's guards, this unit is best commited to the fight at the point of crisis, when the general's inspirational leadership and the combat power of his men can tip the balance.
