Serving alongside their like minded comrades in the Teutonic Order, Sword Brethren seek to remove the Pagan presence from Livonia and surrounding regions. While conversion is the preferred method, these men often feel it is too slow a process and that the matter is best resolved with a sword.
The Sword Brethren are the standard sword wielding unit of the Teutonic Knights and can cut their way against light infantry and spearmen and hold their own against other melee infantry and are an excellent unit to protect the walls against units climbing from ladders or siege towers.
They are best used in the flanks of units such as the Order Spearmen (Teutonic Order). Like other non-spear units however, they can easily be killed by a heavy cavalry charge and missile attacks can slowly whittle their numbers.
