Valiant

From LOTR-TCG Wiki

Valiant is an Unloaded Keyword appearing on cards from the Culture Rohan.svg Rohan culture. Valiant companions tend to be more lone-wolf types rather than about the masses, but this is not a hard-and-fast rule. In general the keyword is very vague, unlike its counterpart Knight in the Culture Gondor.svg Gondor culture that it was a mirror to.
