Arrow Knights are descended from the Méxica Otontin warrior societies – once higher in status that the Jaguar and Eagle Knights – and sometimes known as Otomitl, the ‘wandering arrows’. An Otontin was equipped with an atlatl, or spear thrower, and darts or javelins, tlacochtli, made of oak. The Otontin were not chosen for government office, as they were believed to be too unrestrained for such responsible positions.
As modern Imperial Méxica Army regiments, the Arrow Knights still strike from afar, but as orbital assault troops.
