Little was known of his background, but except that he first appeared
as an out-of-work spacer in the Outer Rim Territories. After gaining employment
on a pirate ship, Beeli found his own calling: seizing other ships. He
was famous for his headlong rushes into a captured ship, blasters blazing
as he quickly secured it for his group. When the pirate group broke up,
Beeli joined forces with several other pirates and formed the Solar Terrors.
They were hunted down by the Empire and Beeli quickly surrendered. He
was approached by Vocis Kenit and offered a deal: his life in return for
service to the Empire. Beeli agreed to help Kenit by pretending to be
a privateer team hoping to join the Alliance. In this way, Kenit hoped
the Solar Terrors would hunt down the Far Orbit. To insure Beeli's cooperation,
Kenit infected the Solar Terrors with Vira606, and rationed out the serum
as the pirates performed their roles.
Big Jak Targrim
This four-armed, hulking alien was the pirate leader of the Riders of
the Maelstrom. His genetic structure has been altered over time by the
addition of gene material from various evil criminals and warlords to
make him even more ruthless and evil. This plicing of genetic patterns
has resulted in Big Jak having a wildly-variable personality, as each
of the genetic patterns tries to assert itself. His face was scarred in
battle. Big Jak resented the intrusion of Rodin Higron's pirate group
on Oasis, and schemed to capture a large ship passing through the Maelstrom.
Once he was in control of a large ship, he would set it on autopilot to
crash into Oasis and destroy Higron's pirates. Big Jak's chance came when
the Kuari Princess made its way through the Maelstrom. The Riders were
able to board the luxury liner and gain control of its bridge. His plot
was foiled by the timely intervention of Alliance agents, who were on
board the ship trying to thwart the plans of Imperial Moffs Vanko and
Torpin. Big Jak managed to escape before the Alliance agents could capture

time, they were pursued by the Corellian Security forces for several crimes.
An interstellar chase resulted in the pirates landing on Gus Treta to
create a diversion. The diversion involved the destruction of a fuel depot,
owned by the Antilles family. The devastation, caused when the pirates
lifted off while still coupled to the fuel dispensers, destroyed the Antilles'
depot and killed Jagged and Zena Antilles. Wedge Antilles was safely off
the station when the "accident" occurred. He and Booster Terrik
pursued the pirates, destroying their ship and leaving them for dead.
This pirate gang worked for Buula Nen during the Galactic Civil War. Like
most of Buula Nen's operations, the Raiders were based out of Buula's
Agroup of marauders who wreaked havoc in the Amorris system. They were
led by Captain Zothip, who manages their operations from the Void Cutter.
They maintained several bases in the area, including a base deep in the
Kauron asteroid belt. This base was compromised and abandoned about ten
years after the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn, when Luke Skywalker went
in search of the clones being used byZothip.
This Rodian pirate is somewhat more cultured than his average relative,
but still has a mean streak. Chordak did not use violence for the thrill
of violence, which was a departure from the Rodian norm. He plied the
spacelanes in his freighter, the Oo-ta Goo-Ta, travelling though the Minos
Cluster and springing traps on unsuspecting transports. His usual plan
of attack was to wait in a spaceport, searching for a suitable target.
He then placed an explosive charge on the transport, which he could remotely
detonate. He then followed the transport through hyperspace to its destination,
where he would detonate the explosive. The crippled ship would then be
easy prey. Chordak had hoped to catch the attention of the Imperial forces
which occupied the Cluster during the Galactic Civil War, but never received
an Imperial commission.
This Givin pirate was, at one time, a priest among his people and an expert
in "transfinite hyperspacial mathematics." He dreamed of being
rich, and resigned his priesthood after the Fractal Heresy. He soon found
work as an astrogator aboard a bulk freighter, but his xenophobia forced
him to find other work. He was later employed by a the Duros who owned
the Tesserahedron, which Chrag'mak'al eventually purchased out from underneath
the Duros and manned with Givin officers. He used the Givin's ability
to survive for a short period in hard vacuum to his advantage during boarding
operations, breeching his victims' ships and allowing the interior atmosphere
to bleed out, killing all aboard but leaving the ship open to Givin takeover.
This legendary space pirate and smuggler was described as a hairy humanoid
with oily green skin. He hid out in the Hoth asteroid belt, lying in wait
for ships to fly too close to it. He was never found, because he kept
hopping around the asteroid field, relocating his base and hiding until
he could strike again. Clabburn was known to leave a space slug living
in his abandoned bases, further eliminating any pursuit.

during the New Order. It consisted of a bulk cruiser, three CR90 corvettes,
and 20 assorted starfighters. Their ultimate goals were never known, but
they had several tactics which made them stand out. They almost always
freed the crews of the ships they attacked, unless the crew resisted capture.
Then Abin-Ral-Xufush ordered his pirates to execute them immediately.
Slave cargoes were always stolen by the Dark Wing fleet, although they
were never seen again. Many believed the slaves were absorbed into the

that Trade Federation Battleships - loaded with droid starfighters - had
been hidden within the convoy.
This Ithorian and his twin brother, Dorin, were among the most vicious
pirates of the New Order. This made them a great aberration to the normally
placid Ithorian people. Formerly members of such notable groups as the
Fivaran Organization, the Bandits of Ggy-ynt, and the Yarnak Gang, the
Venithon Twins joined the Hy'thor Pirates shortly before the Battle of
Yavin. The Twins left the Fivaran Organization after a failed raid on
the Alliance Special Forces vessel Hauler VI, and fled to the Hy'thor
gang, where they quickly established themselves as cruel leaders. They
were even made special ambassadors to Safonne Pendon's gang. Whereas Dorin
was belligerent and bullish, Denuab was somewhat reasonable and diplomatic.
This band of space pirates operated in the area between Minos Cluster
and Kathol Sector during the early years of the New Republic. Led by Miktiss,

This pirate gang operated during the early years of the New Order. Nearly
all the Fivaran pirates were killed or captured shortly before the Battle

helping to deter any pursuit.
This gang of shipjackers and thieves plied the Ac'fren Spur of the Sisar
Run, and were the main rivals for the spoils of the Spur of the Disac
Pirates. After the Ghilron gang witnessed the extermination of the Disac
gang, they went into hiding.
Hawk-bat Independent Space
This was the name of the pirate identities used by Wraith Squadron during
their attempt to infiltrate Warlord Zsinj's forces. Several of the Wraiths
donned makeup and became Hawk-bats, in order to hide their identities
from anyone they met with. The Hawk-bats concentrated their early efforts
on the planet Halmad, which was just outside Zsinj's area of control.
Their base was situated in an abandoned mine, designated A3 by Tonheld
Mining Corporation, within a large asteroid in the Halmad system. After
stealing several TIE Interceptors from the garrison in Hullis, and pirating
the cargoes of a number of Halmad-based shippers, Zsinj finally stepped
in and took protective control of Halmad. He then offered the Hawk-bats
a chance to join him, rather than fight against him. They agreed to participate
in Zsinj's raid on Kuat, where the New Republic's forces - led by Han
Solo and the Mon Remonda - nearly caught the rogue Warlord.

of Endor. In order to secure their supply lines, the Alliance destroyed
the Hurrim base and captured Golov Nakhym.

Gamma-class assault shuttle. At the height of his influence, Woern commanded
over 200 different pirates of all species.

This ancient group of pirates was based on the planet Voon until they
took control of the Hyabb-Twith Corridor, nearly 1,000 years after the
Great Sith War. They preyed upon the ongoing feud between the governments
of Hyabb and Twith, and eventually the Marauders established a base on

channels failed to bring him into custody, the Federation hired Vana Sage
to capture Nym. She was able to lure Nym and his crew into a trap when
they tried to sell off a load of experimental Scalp-Hunter blasters they
obtained from the Trade Federation. Despite her success, Nym's crew soon
rescued him from the Federation's control. Nym piloted his ship, the Havoc,

during the early years of the New Republic. They maintained a fleet of
capital ships and support craft that was rivaled only by the Imperial
Navy fleet assigned to Kathol Sector, making them a formidable opponent.
This firepower made them virtually unstoppable, and they attacked wherever
and whenever they chose. The Skandrei later allied themselves with Gorak
Khzam and the Sabriador Slavers, in an effort to eliminate the Qektoth
Confederacy. During the Battle of Kathol, the Skandrei agreed to help
Khzam defeat the FarStar as well as the Confederacy, but their combined
forces were not enough to overcome the Imperial warships in orbit arounf
Kathol. The Skandrei Bandits and the Sabriador Slavers were both destroyed
in the battle.
This pirate group was formed by Venslas Beeli and several other pirates,
during the early days of the New Order. The Terrors were infamous for

that Dren Melne, a member of Naboo's Bravo Squadron, would assist in obtaining
the starships. However, Dren didn't count on resistance from Essara Till
and the loyal Naboo pilots of Echo Flight. When it became apparent that
Dren would be unable to deliver the starfighters, Sorran ordered Dren's

X-Wings and Y-Wings, and they were unable to change tactics quickly enough
to avoid over fifty percent losses of hardware and pilots.

This white-haired, white bearded pirate captain owned and operated the
Nebulon-B frigate Free Lance. His band spent much of its time attacking
Imperial supply ships, both during the Galactic Civil War and into the
era of the New Republic. They were quite successful during the early years
of the New Republic, as the Republic spent its time tracking down the
remnants of the Empire and turning a blind eye to piracy. However, after
the negotiated peace between the Imperial Remnant and the New Republic,
Xhaxin found the pickings growing slimmer and slimmer. He was forced to
being arranging for travel of supply ships himself, advising them to fly
along spacelanes that his pirates regularly patrolled. While making trying
to ambush a convoy near Bastion, the Free Lance encountered a Yuuzhan
Vong warship and was nearly destroyed. Xhaxin and his crew made a blind
jump into hyperspace to escape, and were forced to obtain aid from the
Republic. In turn, Xhaxin relayed the information of the Yuuzhan Vong

old injury. He was known by the nickname of Grayclaw, a reference to the
gray bantha-hide glove he used to cover the prosthesis.
