Collectors are numerous in the Hive. They scrounge up a living by gathering corpses decaying in the streets and sell them to the Dustmen in the Mortuary for a few coppers. Their income is usually supplemented by stripping whatever possessions the body has.
Due to their grisly occupation, collectors are mistrusted by the locals. Rumors abound that the bodies they sell aren't always quite so dead when they lay their hands on them.
