Refugees are rescued civilian women on the path to becoming Sword Sisters.


Despite slowly evolving from initially vulnerable and unarmed women, this line results in Sword Sisters who are extremely powerful fighters on par with Mercenary Cavalry. Refugees and Peasant Women are very difficult to acquire, as they can only be hired from a defeated party's prisoners. This means for most players this troop line will be very rare, although Steppe Bandits frequently have peasant women as prisoners owing to their high speed on their horses.

If you intend to develop female fighters, it is crucial that you keep them out of combat at all costs, as they will only be able to hold their own from Huntress onwards. Any rank lower than this will be quickly butchered by most other troop types. Once they reach Camp Defender or Sword Sister level, they can hold their own against most other troops.
