Ellyrian Reavers are a type of light, fast cavalry raised from the High Elf province of Ellyrion. They are amongst the best horsemen of Elven kind and ride ahead of the Phoenix King's armies, serving as scouts as well.[1b] Reavers utilise both bows and spears from atop their mounts to harass enemy formations and attack swiftly from the flanks of foes.
They ride out from their city of Tor Elyr and patrol their homeland's coasts, keeping watch for potential invaders such as Dark Elves and Norse Marauders. In a similar fashion they keep a lookout for any monstrous beasts such as Chimeras.
