Some Samurais are the armored knights/soldiers of Asia; others are Ronin, samurais without a master. Samurais become ronin through one of a few circumstances: a former master's death, an individual ronins disgrace, or the destruction of his lord's clan; eventually, such ronin can resort to banditry or organized crime.

On the other hand, they can be samurai who take advantage of their honor code and abuse of it to get what they want.
