Listen up you wretched scum. I see your struggles. Trying to survive in the wasteland. It's time to face the facts. The end of the world's come and gone. Your past lives are a dream. It's time you woke up. They thought they could take our land and give it to the machines? They were wrong. We won the war. And now we reap the spoils. We built a new world from the ashes.

The Junkers are a cutthroat society that resides in the Australian Outback.

Background[edit | edit source]

The origins of the Junkers lie with the destruction of the country's omnium, which turned the Outback into an irradiated wasteland that was uninhabitable to most humans. Those who survived formed the Junkers, who scavenged the husk of the omnium and formed a lawless, cutthroat society in its shadow.[1] The Junkers continue to pilfer the omnium. When they aren't doing that, the Junkers blow off steam in the Scrapyard—a massive gladiatorial arena whose combatants fight for glory, riches...and to survive.[2]

Known Members[edit | edit source]

A group of Junkers

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Hammond is the current champion of the Scrapyard. However, the Junkers do not know that Hammond is a hamster, and Hammond himself is not a Junker.[3]
