As the class name suggests, Oliphantiers are meant to imitate the appearance of elephant-mounted archers. The horse mount is fitted with a face armor with features like a trunk and a pair of tusks. The rider's uniform is inspired from the elephant archers of medieval India, as they have a history of using these kind of troops in the past.
Regardless of what weapon they have equipped, all Oliphantiers wield a strange, futuristic-looking bow with many mechanical-looking moving parts, which fire arrows that explode upon contact with the enemy.
'Oliphant' was an old word for 'elephant'. It may also be a reference to the elephant gun.
The Japanese name of the class share its name with a powerful Ballista.
