Veterans are the highest ranking of the regular Legionaries, exceeded by Caesar's elite centurions, Praetorian guards, and their own officers. They have served in the Legion for around ten years. Due to the extremely brutal nature of life in the Legion, life expectancy for a Legionary is very short, and those Legionaries who have managed to survive in the Legion for ten years have to be exceptionally tough.
Veteran legionaries have exactly the same health and skill level as prime legionaries, however their Legion veteran armor offers slightly superior protection compared to Legion prime armor, and they are often equipped with better weaponry.

Behind the scenes
|The following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and may be inaccurate.|
The veteran legionary is based on the Roman Republic's Triarii (singular Triarius). The Triarii were the most experienced and best-equipped members of a Legion and formed the third line of the Legion formation in battle, using spears instead of swords and being used to "finish off" tired enemies.
