Cretean foot soldiers are spear-and-shield troops designed to fight on the frontlines of the Cretean militaries which protect and fight for the city-states of their land. Most foot soldiers have been drilled in combat from an age of 12 and are around 16-18 years of age when they first experience real combat. If a soldier is thrust into close combat or uses all of his spears (he carries 6) then he will fall back on his gladius (short sword) for close combat skirmishes.
