First seen in Gatekeepers, the Red Flag is a loose alliance of bandits in the Northern Arcade.
The Red Flag is a loose alliance of bandits in the area, that got together when the bandit-free-for-all in the northern Arcade from last year stopped being quite so free. A lot of the unaffiliated bandit groups have already been dealt with, but the Red Flag allows bandit groups to communicate and send each other warnings.
Nevertheless, they've been going down slowly anyway.
The kid was the son of the founder of the Red Flag, who is currently in custody. He recently developed some cool abilities along "thwackback" lines.
