The Wraiths are the largest group of Raffen Shiv, rogue nomads. This group travels mostly at night and preys on the sleeping and unwary. Their leader is named Dogkiller and is rumored to wear clothing of human skin.
The Wraiths are one of the two prominent nomad groups inhabiting the Badlands. They have a long history of frequent conflict and warring with the other nomad group, the Aldecaldos. The Wraiths also have a custom near 1000 horsepower car that they roam the Badlands in called the Reaver.
While nomads usually operate in a judicial grey area, the Wraiths ignore the law. They are vicious as well as aggressive and have dominated the areas surrounding Night City. They raid small villages as well as attack small groups of nomads and attack weakly guarded corp transports. Cyberware and other equipment used by the gang include reflex boosters, pain editors, heavily modified vehicles, and possibly military-grade equipment.
The origins of the Wraiths are unknown. What is known is that they are one dozen nomad-originated gangs on the West Coast, presumably consisting of exiles from nomad nations. The size of the gang is unknown but they are presumably the size of an average nomad clan, about 300 to 1,200 members.
Source of income
The main source of income for the Wraiths is the spoils from their raids. They sometimes go to big cities for transportation contracts but are notoriously unreliable mercenaries. They often break agreements and keep the loot they were supposed to transport or keep the passengers either for ransom or for their own enjoyment.
