A combatant in a backalley tournament in one of four Coasts: East, West, North, and South (though there are pipe fighters that have no designated Coast, such as those in the In-Between). Generally, a pipe fighter allies himself with other pipe fighters to fight a common foe. All pipe fighters must have a pipe (with which to fight), a nickname, an occupation (before pipe fighting, of course), a special power, and a weakness. Some lead, some follow; all fight.
"Pipe fighters rule."
