Hersir (Hero)

Hersir are the Norse hero units. They are not very tough against anything but myth units, but unlike other heroes are easy to mass produce. Like all norse infantry, they can construct buildings.

Hersir slowly generate favor on their own, and generate twice as much favor from combat than regular units.
