Scottish Gallowglass

Shield Grogs


The Gallowglass are Scottish mercenaries. They were noted for wielding the massive two-handed sparth axe and broadsword or claymore. For armour, the gallowglass wore a mail shirt over a padded jacket and an iron helmet and carried with him throwing spears. The Gallowglass of the Inverted Tower were displaced after being on the losing side of a clan war and sought refuge south in Northumbria where they were hired on by the Voluntus covenant and subsequently paid to assist in the recovery of the Inverted Tower.
