“The Jade Shoulders, elite soldiers recruited originally from the far reaches of outer Taimik, a harsh and unforgiving place.

Their hardy upbringing in those blasted lands have earned them the favoritism of several Avatara, and a fierce reputation of fighting to the death.

Now serving throughout the Fulcrum as urban and close quarters specialist infantry, they’re a flexible unit to be quickly deployed anywhere as needed.

Swift and fearless, they pin their enemy into unfavorable situations by advanced boxing strategies, before dispatching the enemy with their chosen instruments of death: Their short glaive and arming swords.

Despite the attentions of Avatara, they forgo advanced weapons and lacking heavy weapons, they are often paired with heavier armored and mechanized forces to guard key installations.”
