The Eagle Warrior is one of the unique units in Civilization VI. The Eagle Warrior Unit belongs to the Aztecs. This powerful version of the basic Warrior Unit can turn defeated enemies into Builder units.
Within the Aztec army existed two classes of elite infantry: the Jaguar Warriors and the Eagle Warriors. Eagle Warriors were comprised of the bravest young men of noble birth who had managed to take the most prisoners in battle. Only after taking 20 prisoners intact enough to serve as human sacrifice could a young man be considered for Eagle Warrior status.
