This one kinda looks like an escape slave, don't you think?


Manhunters are a Faction of people who hunt people who escaped Slavery for a living, similar to the Slave Hunters faction.

They can often be found in areas with lots of escaped slaves around, and will sometimes attack innocents (including the player) and sell them to the slavers as "escaped slaves".

Manhunters which encounter the player will question among themselves whether nearby Player Characters look a bit like a slave regardless of the situation and ask themselves if they're worth taking. Depending on how many other characters are around, the Manhunters might attack the player's squad.
