Scavengers are Invalids who are considered dangerous by and prey on other Invalids in the Wilds. They don't take sides in politics and are not loyal to anyone but themselves. They do jobs for whoever pays them, no matter what the job may be. Quite a few Scavengers are those who have had botched cures, and thus are incapable of feeling anything for anyone.

Despite the fact that Scavengers usually prey on other Invalids, they were involved in taking down a DFA rally in New York during the events of Pandemonium.
