The Hellriders were a group of skilled horsemen who acted as the primary armed force of the city of Elturel. Skilled soldiers who fought from horseback, they were typically proficient with spears, composite bows, and a curved saber similar to a scimitar.[1]


In addition to policing the city itself, they patrolled the nearby reaches of the Chionthar River and those regions of the Fields of the Dead that were within Elturel's jurisdiction.[1]
