Bounty Hunters occupy the ambiguous gray area between heroes and villains. For the most part, they are neither good nor evil; they just have a job to do. In some ways, Bounty Hunters perform a useful service, since they hunt down criminals and other fugitives, bringing them in dead or alive. However, Bounty Hunters rarely consider the ramifications of what they do or even care about whom they serve. To a Bounty Hunter, it almost never matters what a target is accused of or why there's a bounty on his or her head. Bounty Hunters are often employed by some of the most despicable villains in the galaxy. They can be found haunting the courts of Hutts, scouring The Outer Rim worlds for fugitive slaves, or toiling in the service of the Emperor.
Bounty Hunter Encounters Edit
Although some Bounty Hunters prefer to go it alone, many form small crews, with the most notorious member leading a small team of ordinary hunters. These groups form up for short times, usually until a job is done, but sometimes they collapse when greed or grudges get in the way. Hunters are not reluctant to betray even those closest to them, making their alliances tenuous at best. Should a job turn sour, they might turn against one another, perhaps giving their prey the chance it needs to slip away.
A typical Bounty Hunter encounter usually involves a skilled Bounty Hunter of note, supported by a crew of two to three minions. Bounty Hunters who are intent on bringing back their marks dead rather than alive might pair up with an Assassin to ensure that the job's done right.
