Pirate, a bandit who operates on water.

Highwayman.

You can probably think of many more names and types of bandits. What is common to many bandits is they steal from others by force, and the victim is frequently beaten, physically abused, enslaved, and sometimes killed. The bandits in Soul of the Beast are dirty, unshaven, and dressed in old, worn clothes. That is true for many bandits, but not all.gangster

 

Bandits can be impeccably dressed in suits and ties with underlings to do their “dirty work.”
