Mount & Blade Wiki

Ailchu is one of the heroes in Viking Conquest. He is an Christian Irish peasant.

In the campaign mode, he can only be found in the Irish city of Caiseal. In the sandbox modes, he can be found randomly in any city.

Due to his high agility, athletic and horse riding skill when recruited, he can act as an excellent skirmisher or cavalry unit. In the long term, Ailchu can become a better path finder and spotter than Caio, because Ailchu's agility can be maxed by level 16, which is much sooner than Caio can be maxed in that attribute.


"You have not? Then perhaps you have heard of my steed, which cuts across the plains like a beam of moonlight? Or of my sword, a connoisseur of the blood of the highest-born princes of Hibernia?"

"I have always been a warrior, not a farmer or anything else; only a warrior. I admit a modest affection for these lands, and for the past several years, I have visited their downs, forts, and villages, making the most of my particular talents."

"Which reminds me -- somewhere out there in the town, an enemy lurks in shadow trying to imprison my free destiny. Namely, and angry, foul, unhappy husband. Not to mention the father, as well. I think there is also a mother and an uncle. I don't suppose you might consider helping me leave town, would you?"

"Indeed? You would do well to enlist me."

"Sword, spear, the bow -- my skill in all such martial pursuits is the stuff of epic verse. Together we will perform feats that will be recounted in festivals and campfires, in filthy taverns and in the halls of kings, for many generations to come."

"Before I sign up, there is  the small matter of some expenses I have incurred while staying here -- 300 peningas. Do you think that you could cover those for me, as a gesture of our already legendary friendship?"
