Soldiers are members of the Burthorpe Imperial Guards. There are some Soldiers that you cannot attack who are doing military drills in the main area of Burthorpe. They appear to be wearing spiny helmets coloured black without the spikes. When talking to them they will say a random sentence in Latin. They have since been replaced by Patrolling guards.

The soldiers' line about a banana in his ear might be a reference to a Bert and Ernie cartoon, in which Ernie also has a banana in his ear. It may also be a reference to the popular video 'Charlie the Unicorn', in which the characters start singing a song about putting a banana in your ear
Burthorpe Soldiers used to wear dark brown tops for a small period of time, meaning that the top they wore was actually a Plague Jacket as their tops were updated along with the jacket and the rest of the whole Mourner gear.
Despite having claws, they use their fists to fight.
For some time in late November 2010 and early December 2010, a glitch caused the soldiers to have pink jackets.
When you talk to the soldiers he speaks Latin, even though near him a Sergeant training some other soldiers speak to each other in English.
The sergeants are addressed as "Sir" by soldiers, even though they are not officers. The correct term should be simply "Sergeant".
One of the lines that the soldier says is "Eat my shorts!" This may be a reference to The Simpsons where Bart Simpson says that.
