Scouts

Scouts resemble warriors most closely of anyone in the Fifth World. A family's scouts will keep an eye out for any monsters or threats from other families. If they spot an impending danger, they will do whatever it takes to protect their family. Mostly, this involves confident posturing to scare the threat away before anyone has to get hurt. Sometimes, though, they must resort to violence.

The scouting traditions of some families date back to the Boy Scouts of the Fourth World, before the collapse. In some families, scouts' duties include making sure no one tries to seize power or recreate ancient hierarchies.
