These bandits might be of any racial background; if it's important, feel free to add a racial skill or aspect to reflect who the bandits are. Below is a bandit typical of the few roads that weave their way between the older cities of Gallea and Faeln.

Stunts
Spurs and Leather
You can get more out of your mount with liberal application of the spur or slap of leather. You gain a +2 to any actions in a chase scene, but with the cost that your mount will take a consequence at the end of the scene. If your mount has already taken a consequence, or cannot take consequences, then your abuse will likely kill it - but at least you have a chance to escape justice, a posse, or angry victims.
Ambush
When you use Stealth to place aspects relating to setting an ambush ahead of an encounter, those aspects provide a +3 bonus when invoked instead of the usual +2.
Extras

Light Leather Armor. This well-worn armor provides one free invocation for defense.

Short Sword. This may be used as a finesse or martial weapon. Optionally, a bandit might simply use a hand axe as a martial weapon instead.

Short Bow. A bow suitable for use from cover or from horseback.
