Recruits are a really important part of your covenant.  While you as the leader of your covenant tend to be stronger than recruits, you can have up to 5 of them so they make up a very large portion of your covenant's power.  Recruits seem pretty simple up front, but there is a lot to take into account when choosing which recruits to keep and which ones to recruit.



The simplest part of recruits is their level and class.  This works exactly like the player.



Each recruit has 4 skills.  One or two of these will be always be the same based on the recruits class, but the rest of the skills will be random.
