Proposed Canon

First Appearance: WB2014 Duke Forecastle - Part 6

A Harpooner is a Class of infantry Unit (as in "harpooner-class infantry").[1] Harpooners get their name from their namesake weapon. Like Stabbers, they can stab at enemy units with their weapon, unlike Stabbers they can also throw their Harpoon at far off targets as Archer specialists.

They are Seafarers and as such seem to be primarily used on Ships by maritime powers and sides. A common tactic is to bring a ship into close enough range to another ship or feral for Harpooners and Stabbers to attack it.

They are one of the only conventional means of attacking submarine units, since beam weapons are useless against anything underwater.
