The Backbiter is a promoted unit from the Raider. Like the Raider, his passive is Shield Wall.  He has a base movement range of 4-tiles.

Ability: Run ThroughEdit

Run Through

The Backbiter selects a target and then runs through multiple spaces to reach them, causing 2 armor damage to each character he runs through. He then stops behind his target and stabs them for normal strength damage.

This allows the Backbiter to move through both friend and foe, giving him the highest mobility of any character on the board. The Backbiter is the most useful when hunting down ranged or weakened enemies hiding in the back rows.

Rank 1:  run through 2 tiles

Rank 2:  run through 3 tiles

Rank 3:  run through 4 tiles

Passive: Shield WallEdit

By standing next to an ally, the raider creates a Shield Wall, raising the armor of both himself and his ally by 1. This bonus remains until the raider is no longer adjacent to the ally.

When multiple raiders stand next to each other this effect is magnified as they grant each other their own bonus. Four raiders standing in a square formation will each gain an additional 4 armor.
