Disambig icon.png This article is about the warband term. For the engineer elite specialization, see Scrapper.

Scrapper is a term used to refer to any warband undergoing punishment duties[1] usually assigned by the commanding centurion. A scrapper warband is commonly tasked with duties such as menial labor, salvaging, or otherwise tasks which are below the assignment of a normal warband. While scrapper is commonly a temporary position a warband endures, it can also be permanently applied as a label for any warband which is consistently insubordinate, unreliable, or troublesome. Charr are also relegated to a Scrapper position if deemed too dumb or injured for combat.[2] Gladium are also sometimes relegated to this position.[3]

These warbands are low within charr society and are commonly given little respect, with some even believing them to be crazed.[3] While a gladium may be regarded as one without honor and sometimes looked upon with pity, a charr known as a scrapper is seen as an untrustworthy troublemaker. The term is also used as an insult to non-scrapper charr.[4][5] Their way is to consider all objects found by them to be their belongings, and will only give up these objects through combat.[3]

  2. ^ Mired Deep
    Laria Sharpeye: Scrappers, eh? The tribune has had some dealing with them. They can be a problem...undisciplined, unreliable, insubordinate. They're barely soldiers at all. [...]
    Rytlock Brimstone: Scrappers do grunt work. They're too dumb, insubordinate, or injured for the lines; so they salvage, carry dispatches, clean the dolyak pens...all the dirty jobs real soldiers won't touch.

    Elexus Shredskin: Remind me to thank you again for taking me. Used to be my only choices were Flame Legion, gladium, or scrapper. [...]
    Zemzer Undercut: I heard scrappers are all crazy. Anything special I should do to prepare? [...]
    Braugit: We never saw no chest! Besides, it's just a stupid broken key. It's not like it had your name on it. That makes it fair game.
    Isola: Shut up now, Braugit. Okay, soldier: you got us. But we found that chest fair and square, and we took what was inside. That's the scrapper's way.
    Isola: If you want it, you'll have to fight for it—that's the scrapper's way, too.
