A duty-bound trader dedicated to his herd, Scathach is more trusting of strangers than the majority of his kind. While most humans think of horseborn as a myth, Scathach has interacted with the Kragsmen of the southern bogs often enough to temper his fear.
Active Ability: Trample
The Horseborn Teulu charges forward and tramples an enemy, then attacks from behind. The enemy target suffers regular Strength damage during the charge, is subesequently struck for 1 Strength per tile the Teulu moved before the trample, and is left Concussed, suffering 20% miss-chance on his next (regular) Attack.
Rank 1: Trample 2 tiles
Rank 2: Trample 3 tiles
Rank 3: Trample 4 tiles
Active Ability: Mule Kick
- When promoted to Rank 6, Scathach gains the primary active of Ro'Ech, Mule Kick.
The Horseborn Teulu delivers a devastating kick with his powerful horse's legs, dealing (Armor) Break damage to the target, sending him flying across the battlefield and leaving him Stunned when he lands. Any other unit unfortunate enough to be in the path of the flying enemy suffers a violent hit as well, taking 1 Strength damage. Be careful who is in the Knockback path!
Rank 1: Knockback up to 2 tiles
Rank 2: Knockback up to 4 tiles
Rank 3: Knockback up to 6 tiles
Passive Ability: Hit and Run
Joining the Party
Scathach joins the Skogr caravan in Chapter 10, when the Horseborn are first met near Lundar.
Possible Death or Departure
- Trample increases both the range and the damage output of the Teulu's Attack: at Ranks 1/2/3 it effectively adds +2/3/4 to both range and damage.
As with Derdriu, Scathach is the name of an Irish mythological figure.
