Star Wars: Confederacy Era
Dark Star Pirates
The largest of the various pirate gangs that operate in The Badlands, The Darkstar Pirates are not really a ‘gang’ at all, boasting over 50,000 independent members. Led by the outlawed Gesk Pirate Lord Haze, an entire wing of the group (some 250) are Gesk Stealth Fighters and Kryat Dragonfighters as well as the reason for the name of the gang.
Not operating from any one place but operating out of a stolen Worldship known as The Revelation, The Darkstar Pirates are the scourge of both Confederacy and Empire forces in the area, but have a pact with The Xarr Hutt Cartel and do not steal from them unless it is agreed beforehand (such as in insurance jobs). Being a rogue Gesk Faction, any ships brandishing the Darkstar emblem are attacked on sight by most Gesk, especially members of the Icareya Clan and Shas’ti Families.
