Heroes or companions are unique troops with individual names, stories, skills, attributes, and equipment (all of which can be chosen by you). Like the player character, heroes never die and are only knocked unconscious. You can never station them in garrisons.
Just as in Mount and Blade: Warband it is possible to collect a number of Companions to help you in your quest. These Companions will form part of your party and will gain experience as you progress in the game.
Mount&Blade: Warband is a stand-alone expansion pack for its predecessor, the action role-playing video game Mount&Blade. The game was developed by TaleWorlds and was published by Paradox Interactive on March 30, 2010.
