Legendary Puma

A legendary Puma Spearman.

In Aztec society, membership in the calpulli established each individual's religious and secular schooling, as well as how they would be trained in warfare. The men of a calpulli served together in battle and on the numerous public works projects. Their soldiers wielded weapons of wood and stone, and they often sought prisoners to be sacrificed in religious ceremonies.

To the Aztecs, the puma was a respected predator and held religious significance withing their pantheon of god. The Spanish recorded that Montezuma kept a puma-like creature called the cuitlamiztli (or wolf-cat) in his private zoo. Mexican legends refer to the existence of the onza, a long-legged and extremely aggresive cat native to the region.

Puma Spearman In-GameEdit

The Puma Spearman is a spear-bearing unit with decent hitpoints and damage, but no range. This unit does all of its damage in melee combat. Puma Spearmen are good against cavalry or buildings. You can upgrade the Puma Spearmen to Elite, Champion, and Legendary. With their home city upgrades, they can become a suprisingly easy unit to spam, given the home city upgrades are present. Also, as with all native units, their combat effectivness increases when the War Dance is active.
