Kenshi Wiki

Unique Recruits are unique Playable Characters that can only ever appear once per game unless imported. They have dialogue unique to them, and often have higher stats than average recruits. While most unique recruits are just found in bars and often require a fee to hire, this is not necessarily true for all of them. Note that if a recruit has unique dialogue and joins the player's faction, the dialogue will remain even after the character's name has been changed via the Plastic Surgeon.

Not all of them have a guaranteed name and may be given a random name. In those cases, it will be difficult to pick them out of a crowd without talking to them, though you might be able to, depending on their Equipment.

Note: The locations listed are just their possible spawn points. It is still sometimes random if they actually spawn there. It's entirely possible for some of them not to spawn at all.

Randomized Names

These recruits are similar to Generic Recruits because they have names from the default random names list. The unique part of these characters can be increased stats, lower prices, or special dialogue.
