Quadav Shieldwarriors


The Quadav Shieldwarriors are the military of Beadeaux, armored defenders in the service of Za'Dha Adamantking and the Shadow Lord. This division of Quadav footsoldiers wears incredibly thick steel armor to protect them against the powerful firearms of the Republican Army of Bastok.

Retaliating against the Republic for being driven out of their settlements in Palborough mountains, the Quadav engaged in open warfare in the southern Quon theater with backing from the Dark Kindred. Many of their elite generals led their forces in the hills, marshlands, and fields against the Allied Forces.

Heavy Armored Division[edit]

The Quadav Shieldwarriors maintained ten regular forces, consisting of one paladin unit, two red mage units, one thief unit, one dark knight unit, one warrior unit with an autonomous engineering squad, one beastmaster unit, two white mage units, and one black mage battery. In addition, the Quadav maintain a physician unit of Imps on loan from the Dark Kindred, and trained War Ajattaras for combat.

Each soldier in the Quadav Shieldwarriors is capable of using the unique ability "Diamond Shell," a defensive technique that negates all damage inflicted on the Quadav's shell area including various spells and Ninjutsu. Among their commanders, they utilize the Ore Lob ability to deal significantly more damage than their soldiers' Ore Toss.

Their commander, De'Vyu Headhunter, is a proven wielder of the Wrath of Gu'Dha and his frequent use of Invincible and other defensive magic has given him the reputation of having the strongest defense among the Quadav ranks.

Vhuud Vanguard[edit]

Vhuud Vanguard

The Vhuud Vanguard are a skilled unit of fast, evasive Quadav under the command of Ga'Dho Softstep that patrols the Rolanberry Fields (S) area. While their choice of weaponry is small and their strength is average, they are capable of attacking quickly and evading attacks with greater ease then other Quadav units, making them among the fastest Quadav in the Shieldwarriors. Ga'Dho Softstep is well known for his high-speed attacks, capable of striking several times per attack. Unlike other Quadav commanders, Softstep works with a phantom-like partner known as Gu'Dho Staggershell who appears in times to land a powerful strike on an enemy caught off guard as well as defend Softstep when he is forced to use the Perfect Dodge. Together, they are a formidable duo that is both powerful and fast.

No'Mho Elite Guard[edit]

The elite guard of No'Mho Crimsonarmor is similar unit to Di'Dha Adamantfist's Elite Guard, specializing in divine magic with greater reliance on enfeebling magic. This unit is typically seen on assignments in Grauberg (S), providing a constant threat to Allied units in the area. No'Mho Crimsonarmor is an accomplished mage, skilled in black magic and white magic. He is also a durable fighter, as he has proven to withstand numerous attacks only to replenish himself with Benediction.

Bo'Dho Elite Guard[edit]

Bo'Dho's Shieldwarrior

Of all the elite guard, these Quadav under the command of Bo'Dho Hundredfist comprise the engineer corps of the Quadav Shieldwarriors. Instead of guarding their commander and actively participating on the frontlines as the Elite Guard are traditionally known for, this unit works autonomously from Waughroon Armored Division and participates in support operations for their military. They are capable engineers that can repair as well as constructing mantelets, siege turrets and belfries when the Shieldwarriors acquire enough technological resources. Apart from support missions for the Quadav, they also participate in spy operations for the Shieldwarriors which often includes sabotage missions in Allied operations. Though they place their assigned missions as their highest priority and avoid direct combat when possible, they are all proven to be more than capable warriors when engaged by Allied forces.
