Anyone have any ideas for another word for the term "unit".

Originally I was using the word "Creatures", however my game has humans as well. So "Creatures" does not make 100% sense.

The context of the usage would be: "You summon X 'units' into battle."

So rather than 'units', I'm looking for another word... A better one.

assuming it is "singular"

assuming it is "singular" things, it could be "individuals", "beings", "combatants", or "participants"?

Followers?

Maybe... followers, minions, sycophants, or this kind of words?
Or... fighters, helpers, guards?

Hmm... Two good suggestions

Hmm... I like both "Followers" and "Minions". Not sure which is better. "Followers" sound more religious and "Minions" sounds more like combatants/creatures. Both terms are interesting. I'll have to think about the two...
