|Nephite; Teancum (Nephite Captain); Warfare
A defender of liberty, Teancum was also a proponent of early guerrilla warfare, often employing a combination of brute force with stratagem in order to win battles against the Lamanites. Teancum slew Amalickiah, evil king of the Lamanites, by piercing the king with a javelin as he slept in his tent.
