Blog Number 133 - The Immortals of the Persian army

In Blog Number 131, we were provided the first look at several members of the cast wearing masks who will portray the Immortals. The Immortals were the crack unit of 10,000 warriors who comprised the royal bodyguard of Xerxes, the king of Persia. They were named the Immortals because whenever one of these elite warriors would die of wounds received in battle or of sickness, another replacement would fill in the ranks, thereby, keeping the unit at 10,000 strong.
