Bruisers represent the common thugs of society. While some bruisers live in camps far beyond civilization, harassing travelers and robbing what few cars they can stop, plenty of bruisers make a living shaking down locals for "protection" from their own wrongdoing. Still, even individuals who justify their actions with force know to fear the Amestrain military, leading to a rise in organized crime within city centers.
