Disciple warriors form the backbone of the Masari military.
Encased in combat armor complete with helmet, the Disciple otherwise appears as a slightly taller than normal human (as do all Masari). As footsoldiers, Disciples carry a small shield on their left arm and carry their powerful anti-vehicle pulse weapon on the other arm.
Disciples, as their name suggests, are extremely loyal to their queen, having sworn an oath to defend her and their people. Curiously, they also appear to act as gunners for nearly all Masari vehicles, though if the vehicle is destroyed they apparently shed their armor and become Avengers.
Disciples are first encountered in the Hierarchy campaign when Orlok invades the Masari city-ship Atlatea with the intent of disabling a Masari signal to allow for the vessel's destruction. The brave soldiers demonstrated the Masari's duel energy mode nature throughout the battle, but ultimately were unable to prevent Orlok and his team from destroying their signal generators.
Later, several Disciples aided their prince in assisting Orlok's rebellion against Kamal Re'x, but like their lord they were captured when Orlok was defeated. Fortunately, one managed to evade capture and released Zessus and his fellow soldiers from their cell, leading to a massive prison escape from a Hierarchy compound in Central America.
Tactical Application Edit
Like other basic infantry, the Disciple chiefly serves in cannon fodder, anti-air, and anti walker roles. When en-mass they can deal significant damage to just about anything, but are vulnerable to trampling from Brutes, Mirabel and Viktor, and Conquerors, as well as the deadly mutagens from Defiler and Spitter Turret radiation weaponry.
Because of the damage modifier of their weapons, Disciples are particularly effective against vehicles and walkers, but they are quite ineffective against other infantry, hence an escort of Sentries (which can transport them), Figments or Inquisitors should be provided when the opponent relies heavily on infantry.
