The peasant is a neutral creature in Heroes of Might and Magic III: Armageddon's Blade. It can be found at the hovel, and as a first-level creature, it can be recruited for free.

To know a peasant is to dread knowing a peasant. It seems the only hero eager to fight a peasant or have a peasant in the army ranks is the Necromancer.OffBck

The peasant is the weakest creature in Heroes III, and even with the numbers they can muster, they won't add anything of value to an army.

As their manual description hints at, the best use for them is sending them to a Necropolis to be turned into skeletons.
