Origins

The Huns at the Battle of Chalons by Alphonse de Neuville (1836–85).

A barbarian is a human who is perceived to be either uncivilized or primitive. In idiomatic or figurative usage, a "barbarian" may also be an individual reference to a brutal, cruel, warlike, insensitive person.

The term originates from the Greek: βάρβαρος (barbaros). In ancient times, the Greeks used it mostly for people of different cultures. In the early modern period and sometimes later, Greeks used it for the Turks, in a clearly pejorative way.

During the Roman Empire, the Romans used the word "barbarian" for many people, such as the Germanics, Celts, Gauls, Iberians, Thracians, Parthians, and Sarmatians.

Description

Ancient warriors that still battle among the Greek ruins of the Atlantis Shrine. They come armed with a spiked mace and wear a rather peculiar-looking helmet. They attack by performing long lunges with their weapons. When hit, they will stagger and be knocked back a bit, canceling their attacks.

While not having particularly high resilience, they are often found obstructing strategic spots where it is hard to hit them. In these cases, it is advisable to take them out with ranged attacks or even an ultimate attack.
