Enemies

Bandits-hostile humans that have inhabited Pandora. They will kill anyone and anything in order to obtain equipment, food, and fuel. They are very similar to the Raiders in the Mad Max series, and stereotypical post-apocalypse ruffians. A bandit Psycho appears on the cover of Borderlands. The majority of the bandits were actually convicts used to mine the planet Pandora as cheap labor. When the planet was found to contain no valuable resources they were simply left behind. Although not very powerful, bandits tend to be encountered in groups. They are known to be fond of roaming the game world in vehicles. They sometimes wield quite powerful weaponry, as well as Shields, thus making them potentially very dangerous
Creatures:
-Skag-Quadrupeds with large front legs. They have powerful front claws and a large mouth that opens vertically. Armored plates cover much of its back and head. Skags move through a mix of a gallop and a hop, drooling all the while. Skags, as well as coming in a variety of sizes and colours, can also gain elemental effects that result in a different appearance (Fire Skags have a flaming back, Corrosive skags glow green)
-Rakks-Flying creature with a razor-sharp beak and talons and a stinger on its tail. Like all creatures, rakks have elemental properties and will often try to bomb you with their element as well as dive.
-Scythids-large, insect-like creatures that dig from the ground and attack in groups. They have wings that allow them to hover short distances. They come in a large array of sizes and types, from the small and annoying scythid crawler to the giant scythids. They will often attack vehicles and can pose a danger when massed.
Scythid Crawlers are very small scythids. They will emit a high-pitched noise (akin to a kitten mewing) and leap at the player, and can be difficult to spot due to their size and constant leaping. Shotguns are effective for dealing with them and they have very little health, so they often die in one shot. You can also use melee attacks, especially if your character is Brick (Though there is no need to waste berserk unless there are other enemies around.)
Desert Scythids are like scarab beetles, they have a dark shell and can hover around for a few seconds. It is easiest to kill them with a burst of automatic fire, a shotgun blast, or a well-placed melee attack.
Bursting Scythids are big and bloated scythids, they get close to the player and attack. They have very little health and explode when killed, damaging the player if they are too close. These are also a hazard when driving, since their explosion will deal damage to a vehicle if they are run over.
Giant Scythids act like most other scythids but are bigger and stronger. The easiest way to kill them is with a vehicle but gunfire/grenades/skills will also work just as well.
-Spiderants-arachnid like enemies, that attack in small groups, comprised out of weaker variations, led by a low number of stronger representatives of the species. All of them have frontal head and leg armor and are susceptible to critical hits on their abdomen.
Even the heavens are awed by the power of the Bear -

Well, I was wondering if our characters had to adhere to any of the written classes you have here. As much as I liked the Borderlands game, I hope that an RP of it could grant a little more leeway with characterization.
