Street thugs are crude muscle employed by other criminals to keep rivals at bay and shake down hapless shopkeepers and terrorize the citizenry with brutal beatings. In lawless cities, street thugs can serve as corrupt guardsmen or as a vigilante militia. Street thugs can also be used as bouncers in a tavern or casino. Some might be trained in the arts of intimidation and extortion. Outside of cities and towns, street thugs can also be used as bandits or brigands, or as low-level guards for a merchant caravan.

You can use the above statblock to represent low-level bodyguards or security forces, switching their armament up for more lethal weapons.
