The Savage Hunter is an elite troop, primarily used to track down the hiding gears and humans of Sera. Hunters are bred for one reason, and they do not relent. It doesn't matter that they're abandoned to the Deadlands. You still can't hide from them. Eventually, they will find you. Known for their habit of finding humans relentlessly, they are not to be messed with.
The Savage Hunter was originally named the Savage Marauder and was meant to be playable as part of the Fenix Rising DLC pack until that was changed and the character was removed and replaced with the Savage Creeper which is now named by the Savage Marauder.
