The sparabara, meaning ‘shield bearers’ in Old Persian, were the front line infantry of the Persian Empire. They were usually the first to engage in hand-to-hand combat with the enemy. Not much is known about them today, however, it is believed that they were the backbone of the Persian army who formed a shield wall and used their two-metre-long spears to protect more vulnerable troops such as archers from the enemy whilst the archers sent up a hail of arrows.
In game terms, it is used to refer to the combination of these shield-bearers and the archers that were protected by them.
