The Bandits of Goldharbour are known by many names thanks to keeping their birth names and life stories closely-guarded secrets.

Subsequently, they have adopted and cast aside a long series of preposterous aliases as they carry out one of the longest-running crime sprees ever to plague the city of Goldharbour.

Currently known as Alison Steel and Dirk Broadsword, the two young scoundrels have found themselves the most-wanted criminals in Goldharbour and the most heinous criminals in the eyes of the good burghers of the city since the days of Ansgar the Jaywalker.

They are, for the record, loving every minute of it, confident that they are earning themselves a place of prominence in the annals of Realmgard’s criminal history.

On the one hand, the Bandits are a force of violence and criminality, snatching up valuables, kicking out windows, and knocking down anyone who gets in their way.

On the other hand, the Bandits are also a force of the power of True and Eternal Love.

The Bandits of Goldharbour are as famous for their displays of violence and theft as for their public displays of affection and constant use of ridiculous pet names for each other.
