What's a Scoundrel?

"Good? Bad? I’m the one with the PIECE.


Scoundrels are quick on their feet, but the bombs they fling are even quicker. Whether slinking through shadows or out manipulating the masses, a Scoundrel operates with range thanks to a powerful combination of underbelly schemes and quick wits. Widely known for their usefulness in a gunfight, they’re masters of the Prion Industries Electroswitching Compact Eradicator (PIECE) style weaponry, explosives, and trickery with a knack for making use of their surroundings to maximum effect. 

Anyone looking for a fair fight better look elsewhere because the deck is stacked as soon as one of these gunslingers enters the room. If you're ready to take on the brand of a Scoundrel, you know that life's a gamble, and you're going to do whatever it takes to win.
