Remember the Emperor’s Royal Guard from Star Wars? I will be featuring soldiers in my fantasy books that are similar to the Royal Guard. My characters will have the same red robes and cloaks, but they will have armor and weapons that are medieval in nature and aesthetic. One example will be the usage of a polearm known as a bisento. Another example will be a type of helmet known as a barbute, which is a 16th century Italian helmet.
