The Klan WarriorsEdit

Some Klans have a caste of Klan Warriors. The right to be a warrior is passed from father to son. It is from the ranks of the Klan warriors that the empire enlists its troopers. A Karn warrior born outside this caste may attempt to become a Klan Warrior only by undergoing the right of Hassim-Ra. The individual must defeat his peer master to be accepted. Failure in the trial results in death.

Karn Glaive RidersEdit

These warriors enter battle with jetpacks that hurtle them towards the foe. Their Alto Suits lend them great strength and the speed to keep pace with the Banshees, but they are often overcharged and if damaged can erupt into a huge fireball consuming the Glaive Rider and all around him. For this reason they seek out the heart of the battle.

Banshee Attack ThopterEdit

There can be few sounds in battle that instil such fear as that of the Karn "Banshee" attack thopter. The awful thrumming of their pulsing grav engine is unmistakable. They attack at low level, their stinger and ripper missiles can tear apart Nexus troop and armour formations. This armement is complimented by the venom assault cannon. The banshee is lightly armoured and relies on its speed to make it a difficult target as it weaves its way to the enemy.
