  1. Outlaw: In historical legal systems, an outlaw is declared as outside the protection of the law. In pre-modern societies, the criminal is withdrawn all legal protection, so that anyone is legally empowered to persecute or kill them. Outlawry was thus one of the harshest penalties in the legal system. In early Germanic law, the death penalty is conspicuously absent, and outlawing is the most extreme punishment, presumably amounting to a death sentence in practice. The concept is known from Roman law, as the status of homo sacer, and persisted throughout the Middle Ages.
    • also known as 不法分子, Fuorilegge, 무법자, Fora da lei, Vogelvrijverklaarde, Lovløs, Fredløs, 無法者, Forajido, Proscrit
  2. Outlaw: Though the judgment of outlawry is obsolete, romanticised outlaws became stock characters in several fictional settings.
