Nemesis – Bandin Dobah – Crime Boss
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 Edge of the Empire
Found near Formos (T-10), Bandin Dobah is a stereotypical pirate captain: reckless, crude, and aggressive. His belligerence soon earned him the respect of several of his fellows on the Aqualish home world of Ando and he proved a natural gang leader. Dobah’s impressive force of will compensated for his natural lack of charm. He soon made a number of enemies for himself on Ando, and so he embarked on a career as a spacefarer, captaining a roguish crew willing to undertake all manner of mercenary activity or acts of piracy in order to keep the credits rolling in.
Age has mellowed Dobah to some degree, though by any civilized measure he’s still a violent brute. He no longer has the energy to ply the hyperspace routes of the galaxy in search of easy pickings, but he has been able to turn his resources into effectively managing his network of smuggling teams around the Kessel Run. He tends to conduct his business through a series of intermediaries such as Daro Blunt.
Dobah still rules through intimidation rather than true leadership qualities, and his crew obeys him more out of fear than loyalty. His bullying and boorishness offend all but the most hardened of space pirates, but while the profits from the black market glitterstim trade continue to flow, they remain loyal nevertheless.
