Velites were skirmishers that threw javelins at their enemies. They were equipped with a linen clothing, a wooden shield, sword and a wolfskin called a fursona or fursuit (yes this is actually where it came from). They were often used in hit and run tactics to goad enemies into breaking rank in pursuit or to harass specific weak points in the enemy lines.
