There are those who do not choose to fight for glory or a higher purpose. They work for money. The guild of Shadows employs Mercenaries for the defense of Albion, and these "dirty" fighters are known to be quick and light on their feet, charging an enemy and quickly cutting them down. They scoff at the shiny platemail of the heavier-clad fighters, choosing to wear chainmail, which affords them the ability to be able to occasionally dodge enemy blows.
Not necessarily able to put out the sheer devastating damage of a polearm blow, Mercenaries utilize a weapon in each hand to be able to break through the defenses that a slow tank might find difficult. Loyal to Albion, they do not want to see it overrun by enemies, but they might as well make a profit by the conflict.
