Yvresse Sea Guard
The Sea Guard can fight as effectively on the land as on sea, and are equally resolute defending the walls of Yvresse as battling across the decks of Elven warships. Most Elven soldiery is called to arms only in times of great need, for there are too few Elves to maintain large armies all the time. The Sear Guard, however, is always kept at strength and retains a cote of full-time warriors. When the armies of Ulthuan go to war, the Sea Guard go with them, to crew the many warships and secure beachheads enabling the rest of the army to come ashore. The function of the Sea Guard means that they must fulfill the dangerous tasks of defending their vessels from attack, mounting boarding actions against enemy ships and attacking coastal positions. To achieve this, they are armed with spears and bows, the better to achieve their many tasks combining the best aspects of Elf Spearmen and Archers. Those who have witnessed the Yvresse Sea Guard in action can attest to their practiced skill, disembarking effortlessly from their boats as the keel brushes against the shore. Advancing in a disciplined formation through the churning foam, spears lowered and bows at the ready.
