In Dark Age, there are unique characters who refuse to be identified with any major factions of Samaria. While Bounty Hunters can choose which factions they work with, on their own, they are an offshoot of the Outcast faction by principle. This allows other factions to take on Bounty Hunters to supplement their army to compensate for weaknesses in their ranks. For example, a melee based army could bring on a couple ranged Bounty Hunter units to provide options.
The logo of the Bounty Hunter features a compass rose to represent the pioneering spirit of these unique characters. They embody the idea of living free or die trying and on Samaria, many find themselves doing the latter.
