Preferring speed over protection the Theriaxi Screamer equips lightly armoured leather or furs if they equip armour at all relying on the toughness of their scales for protection rather than heavy plate.

The Theriaxi Screamers tend to use basic strategies but their main fall back is to overwhelm their opponents fighting their wars with a two- sometimes three to one advantage.

The Screamers are the main auxiliary unit and are usually called in to weaken enemy defences.
The primary cost of maintaining the Screamers is Theriaxi lives, their high death rate makes the
All Theraxi who join the hords warriors must serve as a screamer before they can advance to other ranks.
The idea of the Screamers was conceived by Thoian-Xio, a Theriaxi war lord who conquered much of Borum-Theriaxi using his greater number of warriors as shock troops to overwhelm his rivals. Thoian-Xio tactics became so effective that when the Theriaxi rallied together during the first Theriaxi war against the humans, they employed the screamers in every battle. Unfortunately for the Screamers, the Hestian armies adapted quickly to the overused approach and began laying traps that killed many of the Theriaxi trying to overwhelm the Hestian defences before they could even reach the gate. With the death toll of screamers rising higher and higher after every battle it became clear that the warriors they were hemorrhaging were not being replaced quick enough and new tactics would need to be used.
Like the rest of the Horde the Screamers worship Xia, Mistress of Death.
