Hero Scipio is a Hero introduced in The Rise of Rome expansion. He is represented by a Cataphract, but is much stronger and more durable. He can also be upgraded just like any other cavalry, but cannot be trained at the Stable and can only be found at the Scenario Editor.

He is based on Scipio Africanus, a Roman general who defeated Hannibal at the Battle of Zama.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Like Hero Caesar, one of the special characteristics of this unit is that he moves roughly 25% faster than an ordinary cavalry unit. This makes him less vulnerable to ranged attacks as he can easily outrun a Heavy Horse Archer.

Another thing that makes him unique is that his line of sight is much larger compared to regular Infantry or other Cavalry, making him effective for scouting and attacking isolated enemy units on the Map.
