Racial Ability

Humans can train low-tier creatures to become high-tier ones (Peasants to Archers, Archers to Squires, Squires to Clerics, Clerics to Cavaliers). Training can be performed only in Haven towns where Training Grounds facility exists, and only by Haven heroes. Heroes of other races would not be able to use Training Grounds as they do not have the ability to do so. Creatures of other races can not be trained either. The cost of this training ability is rather high at first, but can be reduced by upgrading the Training Grounds building or by learning a special skill called Expert trainer.

Hav-Lazlo.jpg (72483 bytes)

Lazlo

Fighting his way up from a lowly birth with a certain grim resolve, the ordeals that Lazlo has endured have hardened his heart. Covered with scars, stern and ruthless, he hews his way into the enemy ranks like a force of nature. The “kings of battlefield”, as he proudly names his infantry, have little choice but to follow their commander, causing – often involuntarily – extraordinary feats of bravery.

Hav-Rutger.jpg (51811 bytes)

Rutger

Rutger was mostly known as a vagabond, free spirit, and traveler before the call to arms brought him into the ranks of the Griffin Empire's Wolf Duchy. Using the knowledge gained during his more carefree years, Rutger exploits every path, trail, and shortcut to speed his troops from battle to battle. The sooner he finishes the war, the sooner he can return to the roads that still seem to call his name.

Freyda.jpg (68333 bytes)

Freyda 

“Strike like lightning” is Freyda's motto. During her years as a student at the Imperial College of Strategy she often surprised her instructors with daring solutions based on forced marches, surprise attacks and rapid outflanking. At heart, Freyda is always impatient for the next battle to try some new twist on her favorite tactics. Though some murmured that she was promoted because she is Godric's daughter, a string of victories and exemplary leadership have silenced even the most cynical critics.

Godric is rightfully upheld as a model knight and sterling example of chivalric ideals. Demanding the highest standards of courage and integrity from both himself and his followers, Godric commands respect wherever he goes. Troops under his banner trust him without question, as his history of great deeds and his favor in Elrath's eye convince them that his mere presence upon the battlefield can guarantee victory.

Klaus

Rigorously trained but coming from a poor noble family in a backwater of the Griffin Empire, Klaus might have remained unknown if luck had not smiled upon him.

Since that day, his feats have earned him the devotion of all mounted warriors.
