Hulkchaser is a generic term for any clade of adventurers who seek out hulks not only for profit, but simply for the sheer joy of it. Some hulkchasers show an almost manic disregard for the dangers, and will rush gleefully into a newly claimed hulk, protected by extravagant, baroque, or simply functional layers of exoskeleton, nanoskins, and/or remotes. Hulkchasers see mercenary salvagers as beneath contempt, and the feeling is mutual. But among themselves there is a clear sense of honour, even between rival clades, and it is rare for hulkchasers to fight over a claim with more than acerbic insults and prank goo.
