The Cwmyr (Koo-meer; "Heroes") are non-noble midlander champions. They carry swords; a rarity among midland soldiers, though these swords are still rather short compared to those of southerners and Gauls. They wear good quality leather armor, that remains flexible and allows them full movement to make use of their shields and swords. Their considerable skill at arms inspires their fellows in battle, and their bravery is noted.

Historically, warriors in the midlands with swords were often nobles or champions. Champions and heroes were used as rallying points in battle, and their own bravery served as an example to others. They would likely be equipped by their local chief, accounting for their sword, and any other fineries or armor. They would live lavishly; such men were awarded well for service, and they expected to be given the best things available. This may lead to sloth in many societies, but Celts are rather unforgiving of those who 'fall from grace', as it were, and they would work hard to maintain their position.
