Soldiers are known for both combat and battle tactics, using different weapons and wielding shields. Equipping them with a bow and arrow is also good for them, balancing out not just defense but offense as well.
Menelaus's Special Ability: Menelaus inflates into a ginormous ball humanoid whenever he gets too angry, and can move farther within range. He stays there and will not take any damage until the next turn, causing him to inflate the second time, where he inflates to his limits and explodes, damaging whatever is within closer or farther range and not only dealing much damage, but also breaking nearby walls and locked doors.
Ajax the Great's Special Ability: Thanks to his size, Ajax's offense and defense increases greatly, but decreases his speed and giving him less range.
