The horse legions break the lines of enemy advancement and outflank enemy units. They consist of heavily armed knights led by a knight-captain. The horses are raised in huge horse farms in southern Taldor.
The elephant legions move supplies and, in some cases, crush the core of the enemy army. They are led by knights but consist mainly of regular soldiers. The elephants come from breeding stock brought from Garund thousands of years ago during one of the expeditions of the Armies of Exploration.
