“The deadly Greek fire thrown by these elite specialist Byzantine troops causes suppression in enemy defenders, halving their damage and move speed.”
General Information Edit
The substance now known as "Greek Fire" was an incendiary liquid used by Byzantine military. It was especially effective when launched from ships or castle walls. Though other armies had similar weapons, the Byzantine version perfected by Callinicus of Heliopolis was the only one that water could not douse. It burned even on the surface of the sea, giving Byzantine navies a distinct and terrifying advantage. The formula for Greek fire was so closely guarded that we still do not know how to reproduce it today.
