Kenshi Wiki

Skeleton Drifters are wanderers or civilians that belong to several factions: Skeletons, Drifters, Flotsam Ninjas, Mongrel, or Tech Hunters. As civilians of the Flotsam or Mongrel, they can be rarely found patrolling and shopping in the respective towns. Otherwise they can be found wandering several biomes such as Cannibal Plains, Heng, Iron Valleys, The Eye, The Great Desert, and Floodlands.

They wear [High] armour (25% chance of [Specialist]) and have weapons manufactured by Skeleton Smiths.
