Infantry as a term has not yet been strictly defined in [[Erfworld]]. Infantry, in the real world, covers a wide range of personnel. Infantry are generally fighting [[Units]] that operate as squads rather than individuals. Infantry have ridden horses and remained infantry (mounted infantry), and used a variety of weapons from fists to pikes. In Erfworld where some normal species [[flying unit|fly]] (see [[Transylvito Vampire]]), infantry would fly, too, so it can not even be said for certain that Infantry are limited to only ground-based Units. If a Unit is not [[mount|Cavalry]], [[Siege engine|Artillery]], or Support, then it is probably Infantry.

Proposed Canon

Infantry are Units, or stacks of Units, that perform combat on foot. They can be promoted to Warlord at a rulers discretion. They generally have simpler minds than commanders, and rarely have any desires beyond their duties in croaking enemy units.

Classes

Speculation

For species capable of flight, infantry may include flying Units in Erfworld. A broader definition for the term may be required to account for the broader array of sentient species represented on Erfworld, but so far has not been necessary.
