These King's Elites, though devoted to the Sabaean High Priesthood and their ancient city-gods, are personally loyal to their king.


Historically, the institution of the Sabaean Kingship wasn't always the sole authority over the Union's military forces, many being raised through tribal councils outside their main urban holdings, but it did hold complete sway over the King's Elites. These men, though devoted to the Sabaean High Priesthood and their ancient city-gods, were personally loyal to their king - from whom the cost of their equipment and training was exclusively drawn. In the days when the Sabaean King controlled the High Priesthood, they served as temple guardsmen in addition to his personal escorts, marching as a ceremonial guard and as an elite corps of regulars in battle. They were superb melee warriors, trained for the most difficult assaults and confrontations, and fiercely loyal to their king in all fortunes. Such men were the crux of a Sabaean battle line, around which all tactics and strategies were formed, and before which most enemies were driven.
