Terrorists are criminals who use terror (hence their name) and commit flagitious and unforgivable atrocities for some gain. Terrorists range from ruthless, yet well-intentioned anarchists such as V from V for Vendetta to extremely destructive and genocidal individuals such as Not Important. They can also be hate-mongers, fanatics or simply insane individuals who commit mayhem for fun or as an act of retaliation against the society or a law enforcer they hate (e.g. The Joker whom is quoted above).
Many terrorists believe what they are doing is right (especially those known as Eco-Terrorists), but have no qualms about killing innocent civilians or causing massive dommages in order to achieve their goals; in fact, unlike most soldiers, terrorists often deliberately target civilians as they see "terror" as a valuable tool of getting what they desire.
Terrorists can also be linked to other crimes such as piracy, drug-dealing, and slavery, which they may do to fund their cause or as a means to gain more notoriety for themselves.
