Germanic Levy Spearmen are Germanic "free" men of the lowest rank, farmers and hunters accustomed to persistent raids and ritual warfare, but their experiences in constant tribal clashes make them more effective than militia mustered by other peoples.

(GhAI-so-FUL-kho FRI-jod, "One's own Spear-Troop")
Gaisofulxo Frijod, whose name also means "Free Spear-Folk" are composed largely of local farmers and hunters, Germanic freemen of the lowest rank, accustomed to frequent raids and tribal warfare from a young age. According to Germanic tradition, as soon a man receives his spear and shield, he is a "free" adult charged with an equal share and responsibility in the tribe. Frijoz also came to mean "one's own," for to belong was to fulfill those duties of being free.
Historically, every "free" man of the Germanic tribes was a warrior, and expected to serve frequently in such a capacity. Though lacking in the organized training of the warbands that serve in a more regular capacity, these men are veterans of the ritualized tribal warfare which persisted for millenia across Northern Europe, and fight with a force and fury superior to their neighbors’ militia.
