The Fugitive Dacoit is a treasure guardian.

HistoryEdit

The word "dacoit" is an anglicized version of the Hindi word "dakaethee," meaning a local robber or thief. Since the fourteenth century, dacoits held a position of prominence in rural Indian life, the most powerful of which became local warlords, making money through ransoms and robberies, and by protecting members of their own castes against wandering bandits and rival dacoit.

TriviaEdit

  • They have no association with the Marathan Catamaran unit (which is an entirely separate unit despite the fact Dacoit appear to steer those vessels).
