Trope-a-Day: Bounty Hunter

Bounty Hunter: Widely used in the wilder and woolier “frontier” parts of the Worlds, mostly in the Expansion Regions and Periphery, criminals for the retrieval of.  Equally widely decried by the more civilized parts of the Worlds, including most of the ones which use them in the wilder parts but prefer to maintain at least a public “we don’t need that scum” attitude.  In short, the usual hypocrisy in action.
