The Pathfinders is a cohort in the Legio XVIII Dassaretica. It is normally based in Achrida, Dassaretum Province in the Empire of Makhaira. Its current chiliarch is Milanko Tomcic, however Hecatontarch Piriska Mrnjavcevic serves as their day-to-day commander.
They are heavy infantry generally armed with swords, spears, and shields. They generally wear mail in battle. While they are trained with Old Imperial techniques, such as fighting in tight formation each armed with a large shield (known as a scutum) and a short sword, they generally fight in looser formations that allow them more flexibility.
Most of its members are from the Dassaretae tribe.
Like all of the cohorts in Achrida, which is known for its political infighting, they are capable with non-lethal weapons. In particular, though, the Pathfinders train with certain wrestling techniques.
