The historical figure Vlad Tepes (pronounced tse-pesh), who intermittently ruled an area of the Balkans called Wallachia in the mid 15th century. He was also called by the names Vlad III, Vlad Dracula and Vlad the Impaler. The word Tepes stands for "impaler" and was so coined because of Vlad’s propensity to punish victims by impaling them on stakes, then displaying them publicly to frighten his enemies and to warn would-be transgressors of his strict moral code. He is credited with killing between 40,000 to 100,000 people in this fashion. He was also the inspiration for the Bram stoker novel Dracula and countless Horror movies.

Venetian Archers were raised into the Venetian standing army in the late 15th century. They were made up from conscripts from the local population. The Venetian’s thought it would be more effective to have home grown troops than the unreliable mercenary's that they had been using in the past. These troops were also much more reliable as they were seen to be fighting to protect the home sate and empire.

The troops were very well trained and could fight on both land and sea. They would work in tandem with hand gunners and crossbowmen as they had a greater rate of fire. They were also very colourful in their dress. Don't let their flamboyance deceive you these troops were deadly.
