The Outlaws are a group bandits that roam Avalon. They are usually looking to rob the traveling caravans or wagon trains of the Craft Masters transporting their art to Craft Fairs. Most Outlaws are mostly male, but some are female, including a beautiful woman who appears to be a second-in-command after their boss.
Their dangerous and nasty leader, Civello (or Cirello, as his name is also written in the scripts), works with the evil sorceress Lady Kale. Kale too is an outlaw by status (and so "no longer bound by the laws of Avalon"), and is often described as "Outlaw Princess" in the season one scripts.
Civello and his gang are featured in two episodes through both seasons of the series. In "Badlands", Lady Kale learns that the Jewel Riders escort a caravan to Castle Greenwood so she joins their ambush in the Badlands so she can capture both Princess Gwenevere and Merlin's Key. When the Outlaws manage to capture Gwen, Kale just steals away their catch and flies off.
Later, in "Prince of the Forest", Kale hires them to capture or kill (with the help of a giant crossbow weapon) the mysterious Beast (Ian) in the Forests of Arden in order to get its Wizard Jewel for herself. The witch not only pays the gang but also, disappointed with their failures, intimidates them to work hard or else ("Unless I get that jewel, you're going to get a one way ticket into the wild magic!"). It ends up with the enraged Beast completely trashing their camp and the Outlaws flee in fear and awe.
