Halberdiers are yeomen who lord over and physically bully other peasants and force them to pay their fair share of the lord's taxes during tax season. Generally, these taxes are foodstuffs and raw materials so the yeomen are generally the strongest and fattest of the peasants in the village because they eat well. The lord is aware of this and uses yeomen as fierce and stubborn infantry in the field, where their acquiring several iron tools and pots and pans are converted into a crude brigandine armor that is both heavy and effective and sewn together with thick leather. Yeomen are described as the lord's attack dogs and as gluttonous boars and their temperament is not far off, vicious in packs, stubborn and mean. Their heavy cleavers are forged into fearsome halberds and bills with sharp hooks, great for hooking into the armor and flesh of enemies and pulling them to the ground as well as standing in tight schiltroms and literally impaling any enemy foolish enough to charge them.
