The Desert Cavalry are a mixture of Moors and Arabs living in the arid and desert regions of North Africa and the Middle East. The heat of the desert makes armour unpopular with these men, but their loose-fitting robes give them protection both from the sun, and spent missiles or light blows. Armed with javelins these fast moving units are best against other light troops, or harassing enemy flanks where they can stay out of harm's way.
