Galactic Underworld – Pirate
The Galactic Underworld – The Galactic Civil War is a struggle between the Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic. In between the two, however, are the dark shadows of the underworld. In these gray areas, criminals find opportunities for profit by selecting one side or another to assist or, more commonly, by playing both sides against one another in an extremely dangerous, if rewarding, game. Many factions within the underworld have suffered significantly at the hands of the ruthless Empire, and as a result are happy to lend their assistance to the Rebellion – although not for free. Desperate for supplies and equipment, the Alliance is happy to make deals with anyone who will assist them, although they draw the line at such horrendous offenses as slaving and trafficking in some forms of spice.
The Empire, on the other hand, typically has little use for criminal elements. There are exceptions, as the Emperor himself has connections with the Black Sun crime syndicate, and individual officers and Moffs may have agendas that lend themselves to cooperation with criminals. For the most part, the Empire does not endorse or support underworld connections. The most notable exceptions are bounty hunters, whose cruelty and ruthlessness have gained them recognition as legal representatives who can count upon the Empire for some of their more lucrative contracts.
From Age of Rebellion
The vast void between worlds is not something that most citizens of the galaxy spend a great deal of time thinking about; it is simply something to be passed through until a journey is complete. However, the dangers of the void are innumerable, and pirates are far from the least of them. Apolitical and cursed with endless avarice, pirates prey upon any ship weak enough for them to target. This rarely includes military ships, such as those belonging to the fleets of the Empire and the Alliance, but individual teams of operatives on either side of the Galactic Civil War can fall victim to pirates’ endless greed if they are not careful.
From Edge of the Empire
The sort of beings who embrace the life of a pirate are typically those who simply could not fit into society in any other situation. Pirates are selfish, bloodthirsty individuals who thrive on the thrill of combat and the cruel joy of victimizing others. These people live with the ever-present threat of death; when boarding another vessel or if attacked by law enforcement agencies. Because of this ever-present threat of death, pirates tend to embrace a hedonistic lifestyle that includes revelry at every imaginable opportunity and of every conceivable variety.
