This group of people lost their homeland and has been seeking it ever since. Perhaps it was destroyed, or they were exiled, or they were on the losing end of a war. When their home habitable, they often want their original home back and prepare to solve the problem that prevent them to live in it. However in cynical stories, some bad things usually happened in progress, making it uninhabitable. They decided to abandon it, choosing to [[WalkingTheEarth wander around]] until they [[HomeSweetHome find someplace to call home]].

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', this is the case for the [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]]. Unlike the other playable races, the Orcs do not have their own recognized homeland. Several times throughout history, they've attempted to establish the city-state of Orsinium as such, but each time, they've been forced by their hostile neighbors (the Bretons of High Rock and the Redguards of Hammerfell) to abandon it, in part because of [[TheBerserker the threat the Orcs pose]] and in part due to plain old fashioned FantasticRacism. As of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' in the 4th Era, Orsinium has again been abandoned with the Orcs forced to assimilate into High Rock as slaves in all but name. Only a few Orc tribes still live independently in destitute, scattered "strongholds", scorned by all.

* The Sforza dynasty was started by the leader of a band of PrivateMilitaryContractors that used his men to take over an Italian city-state. They decided on Milan; Sforza ended up hiring LeonardoDaVinci when the latter ended up being too prissy for the Medicis' tastes.

** A more benign example would be the Minutemen of the Commonwealth wasteland in ''Videogame/Fallout4''. They already have their homeland, but this place being a part of the Fallout world, there's quite a few monsters, mutants, raiders and larger factions messing with poor people only trying to make a living. The Minutemen was a militia protecting the settlements in and around Boston, but due to [[WeAREStrugglingTogether internal strife]], the Minutemen you find in [=FO4=] are reduced to a small group. Joining the Minutemen during the main quest allows you to retake the Commonwealth for the people, reestablish trade routes and stop the rest of the larger factions from messing with the people.
