Bandits represent the common thug of society. While some bandits live in camps far beyond civilization, sacking caravans and robbing travelers for everything they have, plenty of bandits make a living shaking down locals for "protection" from their own wrongdoing. While bandits are much more likely than most to engage in combat, they're as likely as anyone they shake down to back down if they believe their life is in danger.
