From the preview:
Far less subtle than thieves, Bandits are the base criminals of Terra. These thugs rarely work for criminal masterminds, committing crimes in larger population centers, and rarely getting away with it. Due to the food crisis in Yorak, the Bandit often resorts to burglary in the daytime, or joins a group of other desperate individuals. If he is lucky, the Bandit will end up in prison, but in Mercurious, the capital, most criminals end up in the gladiator pits, fighting to the death for the amusement of those better off than they.
