This was the name of the pirate organization commanded by Lekk Bazak, and which worked for Eelien Kirat on the outer edges of Brak Sector. Theor base was located on a planet which had been abandoned by the Lant Mining Corporation.

Beeli, Venslas
This noted pirate was one of the most feared pirates of the New Order. 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 him.

Black Hole Pirates
Founded by Hethra Mcgrrrr, this pirate band marauded the Delphon System during the early years of the New Order.

Bonestar Pirates
This group of Corellian rogues was once led by Loka Hask. During this 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.

Buula's Raiders
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 Rocky Home.

Cavrilhu Pirates
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.

Crimson Nova Pirates
This group of outlaws worked near the planet of F'Dann IX. They were hunted by Imperial forces, led by Pter Thanas and the Dominant, and were able to keep the Imperials at bay for some time.

Dark Wing
This was the name of the small pirate fleet established by Abin-Ral-Xufush 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 pirate fleet's crew.

Degan Pirates
This was the name given to the raiders who operated in the Dega System during the last decades of the Old Republic. The Degan Pirates were decimated when they tried to attack a Trade Federation convoy, only to discover that Trade Federation Battleships - loaded with droid starfighters - had been hidden within the convoy.

Denuab Venithon
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.

Des'maric Pirates
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, they worked the Trition Trade Route by obtaining information on convoy schedules in a deal with Crev Bombaasa. The Des'maric Pirates used the freighter Asagov Raider as their base, and attacked their targets in a trio of brightly painted Skipray BlastBoats.

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 of Yavin, when they mistakenly attacked the Alliance Special Forces vessel Hauler VI.

The name used by the mercenaries and pirates of the planet Aquaris. They joined the Alliance to Restore the Republic following the Battle of Yavin.

This band of pirates worked the area of space near Hargeeva during the height of the New Order. They were known for their unique armor, which made them look like scaled swamp creatures. The armor contained a special backpack which could spout methane or other gas at the touch of a button, helping to deter any pursuit.

Ghilron Pirates
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 Force
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.

Nelroni Marauders
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 Dachat. The Old Republic demanded that the Jedi Knights step in and remove the Nelroni threat.

When regular 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.

This group of cutthroat pirates was extremely active in the Kathol Outback 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.

Xhaxin, Urias
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 attack.
