La Hire (also known as Étienne de Vignolles) (Born 1390 - died 11 January 1443) is a playable character from the Joan of Arc campaign, who served as a military commander. He first appears in the 3rd mission, The Cleaning of the Loire. He has the same appearance as a champion, although his stats are much better. He is portrayed as a brigand-turned-warrior and constantly refers to the fact that he does not have enough blood on his sword (or that it is going dry), or that he needs to kill or break necks. La Hire appears on several missions, more so than most other hero characters.
