13th century Teutonic Sergeants from the time of the Prussian Crusade -

The Prussian Crusade, unfolding over the course of the 13th century, provided the stage for the Teutonic Knights' aspirations: this historical episode was marred by oppression, land confiscations, and the formation of the Monastic State of the Teutonic Knights, casting a shadow over the history of medieval Europe and its religious conflicts.

In the 13th century, the Teutonic Sergeants were a vital component of the Teutonic Order's structure. Unlike the fully-fledged knights, who were of noble birth, the sergeants were often of common origin. They played essential roles in supporting the knights on and off the battlefield. Teutonic Sergeants were skilled in various functions, including logistics, administration, and combat support. They managed the day-to-day operations of the Order's estates and fortifications, ensuring the smooth functioning of the Teutonic Knights' expanding domain. This included overseeing agricultural production, trade, and the management of resources. Despite their commoner status, Teutonic Sergeants were highly respected within the Order for their dedication and contributions. They were integral to the Teutonic Knights' success during the Prussian Crusade and the broader Baltic campaigns of the time.

As a display of their lower status, they wore padded aketons but no mail, as well as nasal helmets instead of greathelms. On the battlefield, sergeants often fought alongside the knights, providing crucial support in the form of archers, crossbowmen, and spearmen. Their combat skills, while not on par with the knights, were decent, and they played key roles in securing victories during campaigns.
