While the Abandoned are all those men who live outside the law and protection of the compact, these men do sometimes find their way in - through conquering, capturing, swearing fealty to a Great House, or any number of reasons a displaced person might find a new home. These former-Abandoned are referred to as 'prodigals', as a reference to an old folktale about a prodigal son's homecoming.

Prodigals are members of the Compact, with the full complement of rights owed all citizens. How much they blend in with the general populace (and their welcome) can vary wildly.
