Town Guards are the spear-wielding citizen soldiers of the Kingdom of Hyrule.
Town Guards were ordinary men from across all the Kingdom that served as volunteer soldiers. They were assigned to low-level duty in their village of origin. During particularly massive wars they were shipped to the frontlines with the rest of the Hylian army. Armed with a trusty spear and light armor, they were good for maintaining light defense against cavalry and charges, but were poor in an extended melee with enemy infantry.
