All legions are also usually accompanied by three attached century of cavalry, a century of Brelani of Autumn (casters), and occasionally an air cavalry century (griffon riders). The legions prefer consisting of non-dhampyr Eladrin, but that varies. For many times, the daywalker fey can prove very tactically useful.
