Star Wars - Dirge's Dogs
Black Sun held a massive amount of reach and influence, extending its tendrils of corruption deep in the various galactic governments of each era. It was infamous for its involvement in piracy and smuggling. But smuggling was just the tip of the iceberg of the galaxy-wide organization. It was involved in every known type of illegal activity; its information networks surpassed even the accuracy and scope of Imperial Intelligence. The resources available to Black Sun rivaled those belonging to a large planetary army, including foot soldiers.
Below the leader of Black Sun were nine Vigos (Old Tionese for “nephew”). Each Vigo ruled over his or her own territory and sector.
Black Sun existed in some form or another for centuries, possibly originating from remnants of the Exchange. It was known to have existed as early as 3,623 BBY, where it controlled a large district of Coruscant at the time. Although headquartered on Coruscant, its influence stretched the length of the galaxy. Around 33 BBY, Black Sun was headed by Alexi Garyn, who was killed by Darth Maul on his master’s orders, as well as the other Vigos, severely damaging the organization.
During the Clone Wars, Black Sun dealt extensively with the plant Bota, which was found on the planet Drongar. Originally, Admiral Tarnese Bleyd was the main contact with Filba the Hutt for the smuggling. He was later assassinated by Kaird, a Nediji, following the death of the former operative Mathal. Another partnership was later established with Thula and Squa Tront to secure the bota. Upon learning that the bota was losing its potency, Kaird escaped from Drongar with a supply as a gift for his Vigos; it was subsequently discovered that the case was filled with explosives, in attempt at betrayal by Thula and Tront.
Black Sun was known to have several hideouts in remote, scarcely populated planets of the Outer Rim Territories.
