Bounty Hunters – Bounty hunters are feared by criminals and ne’er-do-wells throughout the galaxy. While they have the same authority to enforce legal penalties, they are not bound by the same code of conduct that planetary, system, and sector agencies frequently operate under. Instead, bounty hunters have a well-deserved reputation for violence and ruthless tactics. Many local branches of law enforcement are reluctant to bring in bounty hunters and may even choose not to cooperate with them at all because of their reputation for causing collateral damage when pursuing a criminal. System-wide and sector-wide agencies sometimes contract with bounty hunter guilds as a cost-effective way of extending their reach.

Not all bounty hunters belong to guilds, of course. There are a great many hunters who eschew the companionship of others, instead taking up the solitary life of a predator. These statistics can reflect independent hunters, Imperially-sponsored hunters, or even unlicensed hunters just as well as guild hunters.

From Edge of the Empire

Journeyman hunters have been accepted into the ranks of an existing guild and are fully accredited and licensed to pursue authorized bounties. They are the rank and file of most existing bounty hunter organizations and likely pursue any criminal whose bounty is not high enough to attract the attention of a Master Hunter. Journeymen may choose which bounties they pursue but also receive assignments from their guild. Sometimes guilds assign multiple journeymen to seek a particular target, although this might result in the journeymen fighting amongst themselves over who brings the target in.

Story Examples
  • Cordal’s Chain Journeyman – Found on Nar Shaddaa (S-12, ee-bcr-217) in the Crates of Krayts adventure.
    • They also include a Jet Pack. The story does not give them disruptor rifles as this would have made it too deadly as an into storyline.
