The Brigand is a bulky, powerful shotgun created by the asari company Meriz Weaponsmiths. It nearly faded into obscurity, but its use in the asari action holo "Overwhelming Force 2" in the hands of beloved anti-hero Alicha Zeri inspired a good number of young huntresses to pick it up.

Out-of-character notes

Modem's inspiration for the T-7 was the (in)famous SPAS-12, though looks-wise it's very different - best described as a bulky AA-12 with asari styling and a top-folding stock.
