Shepherds, also known as Peace Makers, are humanoid DeeBees and are the standard DeeBee encountered on the battlefield. They are armed with the Enforcer Submachine Gun, providing light fire but often in larger numbers.
Like other DeeBees, the Shepherds were not initially built for intense combat, but for security and more dangerous labor jobs to keep the remaining human population safe, hence their common recommendation of "social" behavior in their dialogue. These non-lethal security units are known as Peace Keepers and are equipped with Shock Enforcers and an electrically charged whip to suppress any security threats.
Shepherds, like all DeeBee units, are vulnerable to hijacking from a Flock of Swarm Leeches. How these organisms could hack a robotic mainframe is unknown, but these DeeBees would transform into suicidal Rejects.
