A tribe of charau-ka raided a dwarven citadel loaded with prized firearms. They suffered severe casualties but absconded with scores of guns. The ape-men mastered the weapons, forming an elite caste of assassins, monster wranglers, and bounty hunters. Many warriors managed to survive this unorthodox training and now wander the jungle command, eliminating enemies, retrieving fugitive slaves, and stocking the beast pits.

Rather than confronting foes directly, sharpshooters take aim from above, disappearing into the wilderness long before victims can muster a counterattack. They show no remorse and chase wounded targets through the jungle for miles with relentless determination. Priests instilled a strong sense of survival in these sharpshooters, who show surprising restraint for charau-ka. The telltale frenzy of their kin surfaces only when enemies draw close to these gunslingers, and several have broken their muskets bludgeoning foes to death, only to suffer horrible reprimands for their carelessness.
