Normally, it takes at least three strong men to operate the ballista. After all, it has to be precisely aimed, the giant bolt has to be loaded and the bowstring has to be drawn. Even the firing lever requires enormous strength. The weaponmaster Bullmeras does it all by himself, as he is a giant with the strength of an ox. He can operate the ballista single-handedly − and he’s also an incredible shot. He rarely misses his target.
