Throughout the Prince of Persia (2008) game, the Prince and Elika encounters the corrupted minions of Ahriman which are known as Ahriman's Soldier.
These creatures were human beings that were affected by Ahriman's Corruption when Elika's father, the Mourning King destroyed the Tree of Life releasing the 4 Corrupted.
Ahriman's Soldier are depicted in the game as humanoid, dark creatures a bit taller than the Prince and are holding a sword (sometimes, it comes with a shield).
They can be defeated easily with attack patterns or combos given by the Prince and Elika. Sometimes, these enemies can be defeated by pushing them off the playing field.
