As its name suggests, the members of the Beggars Clan (丐帮) are mostly beggars but there are also non-beggars as well. They are noticeable by the public for dressing and behaving like ordinary beggars. The members of the Beggar Clan are people from poverty. The members are characterized by their strict code of conduct and respect for ranks. They uphold justice and help the poor. They also defend their nation and race from foreign invasion as well.


The clan has a wide communication network and its members are reputed for having excellent information-gathering skills. These are attributed to the clan's large population size, the nature of members which allow them to blend in easily and the organizational structure. One of the unique accordance to the Beggar Clan rules and regulations, no matter how large and important or small a meeting, Beggars Clan members could not lose their identity by sitting on chairs. The Dog Beating Stick and wine gourd has been the trademark of the Beggars Clan leader. It's like the golden seal of the emperor.
