Outriders are veterans of the Pistolier cavalry, in battle either leading a unit of Pistoliers or forming their own Outrider units.
They often act as instructors for the younger Pistoliers. [2a]
The role of Outrider units on the battlefield is to accompany the artillery and war machines of the College of Engineers and protect them from surprise attacks.
