So I clicked on this article expecting to read about wasteful raiders: maybe ones who waste time or waste the guild's money...http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/prodigalHeh. People commonly misunderstand the word "prodigal" to mean someone who is lost or has departed, as the narrative of the Parable of the Prodigal Son revolves around a son who leaves dramatically, burning all his bridges, wastes his inheritance (hence, prodigal), and then comes crawling back, only to be surprised by the warm welcome he receives from his father. Incidentally, my favorite parable. Always gets a bit dusty in the room when we discuss it.

That is because the focus is usually on the father's joy for the return of his son, and not focusing on the son's departure and waste of his inheratence.
