Archery Unit is a group of drafted archers in the Holy Kingdom Liberation Army under the command of Neia Baraja.

Background Edit

Three weeks after the siege of Loyts, more prisoners from the neighboring prison camps were rescued. Many of these newly freed prisoners were in fact saved by Ainz Ooal Gown and Neia Baraja making them indebted to them. Those that had a talent for archery were put in this unit.

Led by Neia Baraja, they underwent intense training practices to support the reclamation of the Northern Holy Kingdom.

During training, the group seeing Neia’s skill praised her abilities and the gear she received from Ainz Ooal Gown. After training, they were dismissed. When Jaldabaoth had cast Flames of Gehenna around the city. Ainz suggested to Neia that the Archery Unit head out the city so as they would avoid unnecessary casualties. Neia agreed and gave orders to move their families to the east gate as it would be more likely that the west gate would be attacked. After that, they would form up around the east gate and engage any demons that appeared.

Upon Ainz Ooal Gown's seeming defeat at the hands of Jaldabaoth, the Archery Unit witnessed Neia declaration of that the Sorcerer King was still alive. Hearing her intent to find and organize a rescue party, many in Neia's unit pledged their support to escort her to the Sorcerer Kingdom. Neia tried to rebuke their offers despite their protests. The argument ended with the arrival of Prince Caspond.[1]
