Bandits are scoundrels who live by preying on weary or unsuspecting travelers. When times are tight the rogues will brave the gallows by attacking settlements or even cities. All bandits encountered by the Player work for Gao the Greater and some were assigned to his son, Gao the Lesser, as bodyguards. Bandits used flyers to attack and destroy Two Rivers and were also used to enslave citizens of Tien's Landing. Bandits are the most diverse enemies as they can use various styles ranging from basic styles to Leaping Tiger and Long sword to Spear.
