Question for professional writers

What's that word describing a group of people that carry out revenge on the behalf of another?

For example, say a person really liked throwing parties. Their dream was to have the best party ever! They wanted every guest to bring their friends and they pressured their guests into pressuring their friends to attend their party. Well, let's say that a friend of their guest wasn't having fun at the party, and was caught hiding in another room away from the other party goers.

So the guest was angered and wanted revenge. So they contacted a group of people who specialize in carrying out revenge.

What word describes that…other than a pack of lunatics. What's the correct word?

I think those people only exist in your head.
