An elite cadre stands watch over the frontiers of the Shrouded Kingdom. These men and women, the Takar Hunters, are scouts and falconers of the first order. No enemy can remain hidden from them for long. Their eagles range far ahead, revealing and marking foes. These raptors then return to fight alongside their masters, who are fair warriors in their own right. The Takar Hunter is a hero of the Mershael faction. May be taken as an Ally, with Independent, in any freeband. Only one may be taken. The package also comes with the parts to make the Takar Lookout instead. Takar Lookouts man the Amakir, or border castles, of the Kingdom of Mershael. They have many duties as part of the guard that protects the frontier and the most promising are eventually raised to the rank of Hunter and learn the ways of Taumari and Eagle. The Takar Lookout is a follower of the Mershael faction. May be taken as an Ally, with Independent, in any freeband. Only one may be taken. May not be taken in a non-Mershael freeband that contains a Takar Hunter.
