In French they are called "Robinneux" derived from the word rubbing, from rubbing alcohol --> Rubbiner --> Robinneux.

Bums are homeless people living in our city, but sometimes sleeping or camping in UE sites. Bums are often victims of mental disorder.

Bums are often alcohol or drug addicts from ages 40-70. They are usually easy to deal with as long as they don't become violent. Younger bums are more often punks or skin-head types.

Bums can be friend or foe:

If you encounter a homeless person while exploring, be very respectful and be sure to state your intentions clearly. They might be afraid of having their stuff stolen, so make sure you tell them that you are just passing by and you won't disturb them. Alternately, you can start a conversation to gain their trust.

Although given a bad name by the media, most homeless people are very nice and won't harm you.
