The flag bearers carry the standard of their faction into battle, motivating the Rank & File to pour shots into the enemy at an ever increasing pace. Their flags provide an AoE bonus that extends to approximately compass range. Armed with a pistol and sabre, they can defend themselves if need be, or humiliate their enemies by slicing them up with their flags.

Surgeons selflessly run across the battlefield to tend to the wounds of injured comrades. A health bar appears above any injured men, allowing them to prioritise their triage.
