Mamluks are the elite professional cavalry of the Egyptian Army. Bought as slaves from the hardy Turkish steppe peoples, they are trained from boyhood to be men of the sword. When their training is finished, they are freed and enrolled in the army. Although cavalry archers, these are no light skirmishers. Instead they operate in close formation to lay down a heavy barrage of fire. They have maces for use on anyone who gets too close.
