The Agrianikoi Pelekephoroi are elite light axemen. Their fierceness and their armour-piercing axes make them particularly useful against heavy infantry, though they have the agility to chase down skirmishers as well. However, they have little in the way of armour, making them easy pickings for cavalry.


Historically, these men were members of the Agrianian tribe. They loyally served Alexander the Great during his conquests, and after his death, they continued to fight fanatically for the Macedonian kings.
