Faction: Firstborn

The Fortress of Gergythia on the shores of the Jagged Sea is home to the Crossbowmen of the Firstborn Kingdom. Armed with specially constructed heavy crossbows, the Crossbowmen of Gergythia are perhaps most notoriously known for their love of close combat, granted an unusual trait for a missile weapon soldier.

Mounted on the front of these great crossbows are two wicked blades. While they seem decorative they are not. Crossbowmen are known to charge their opponents and strike to impale them with the twin blades at the head of their weapon. When they hit an opponent this way they fire the bolt causing a devastating wound the likes of which few walk away from.

Though they carry a short sword, they prefer the attacks of their crossbows to the use of the blade.
