Originating from the suburbs of Australian cities, derelicts are categorised by their dependencies which will often include any form of welfare they can con their way into: unemployment, child support, trust housing, disability (for depression), etc etc.
Derros contrast with the common bogan in that they direct their culture and existance towards their own selfish dramatics rather than along racial or sporting grounds (not that this also has a place in their world).
Derelicts are community and family orientated, and will often spend their hours congregating to share how bad they have it and scheming new ways to exploit other individuals or organisations from their money.
Most of their pursuits will revolve around gambling, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, hoarding of furniture and trinkets, getting revenge, get rich quick schemes, badly written letters to family services/politicians, replacing the dead pet cat/dog/rabbit/fish (they're bound to have dozens of these suffering from neglect); petty theft; screaming or beating their kids for being kicked out of another school.
Observer - "Fkn derelict.."
P2: "Frank just dropped it there this morning."
P1: "Oh that son of a bastage! That derelict!"
Cartman: Then the game is on, Kyle.
Kyle: It's not a game, you derelict! And this isn't Scotch! It's apple juice!
They typically work in places that pay little to no money, and survive on $30.00 paychecks every week combined with welfare because they don't report their working status. They have been known to roam the streets until they are allowed into an air conditioned/heated building at which time they start pretending to work. They drink coffee, eat whatever food they come across and generally make messes which they never intend to clean up.
They often have been noted to hang out is dicey bars, or casinos during their lunch breaks spending what little money they earn or extort they spend on sex, drugs and gambling. They work at a place until the company stops paying them, and then they continue the cycle at another company.
