The Scavengers were a band of Malcontent Zentraedi who operated after the defeat of the Imperial Grand Fleet during the First Robotech War. Whilst some Zentraedi attempted to integrate into Earth society, others were unable to curtail their violent instincts and formed various bands of fighters that opposed the United Earth Government.
Among these bands were the Scavengers who were led by Gorian who engaged in various acts of destruction and theft against the Robotech Defense Force. Ultimately, the group would meet its end at the hands of Jack Archer of Base-6. However, Gorian would later link up with Zeraal's forces and become one of his lieutenants. (Robotech: Battlecry)
