Onondaga Fire Keepers Icon
Onondaga Fire Keepers are a type of missile cavalry in Empire: Total War. They are available to the Iroquois Confederacy with The Warpath Campaign DLC.


These heavy cavalry are adept at harassing enemy troops with missile fire.

The Fire Keepers are hardened warriors, honoured by the Iroquois. Thundering into battle armed with muskets and tomahawks, the Onondaga are useful for quickly reinforcing isolated units and taking on troublesome skirmishers. The fires of war burn bright in their souls and bellies!

As the Fire Keepers of the Iroquois Confederacy, the Onondaga were responsible for gathering the Grand Council of the Iroquois. They opened and closed the councils, and sanctioned the decisions arrived at by the Council chiefs. The Onondaga were also Keepers of the Wampum: the Wampum belts were historical records of the Iroquois’ traditions, rituals and events. Onondaga remains the capital of the Iroquois Confederacy to this day.
