The Unscrupulous


Inexperienced Pirate
Inexperienced Pirate
 

Disposition: Hostile
Rarity: Common
Region: Universal
New to the shady arts, these men and women have nonetheless chosen their path in life. Scraping together what they could manage of a ship and a decent set of weaponry they scour the reaches of both the neutral zones as well as the sectors occupied by the Empire, Federation and Union. Most often the danger they pose to space-travelers is reflected in the dilapidated hulls of the near obsolete vessels they have managed to procure, but they loom a constant threat over pilots all the same, if only in the sheer numbers in which they exist.

Region: Universal
Like the thousands of larvae laid in the nests of Space Worms and Maggots to ensure the continued survival of their species, a great number of the inexperienced pirates that roam the galaxies will eventually mature into an even greater threat. Using their newly found wealth to upgrade their dilapidated crafts into the far more intimidating and better equipped vessels, these hardened veterans continue patrolling the far reaches of space for any and all unwitting prey.


Hidden Drug Stash
Hidden Drug Stash
  . . . . .  

Disposition: Defensive
Rarity: Rare
Region: Universal
In this day and age, as it has been for countless millennia, certain substances are worth many times their weight in gold. A large majority of the more unscrupulous pilots throughout the universe rely heavily on illegal drugs to enhance both their pocketbooks and their stamina. In the cutthroat world of the underground, however, only the very foolish or very powerful keep such treasure close to home. Fearing both law enforcement and the lawless, these rogue pilots frequently squirrel away small fortunes of these illicit substances; usually in dense energy fields where sensors are rendered nearly useless. Quite some of these small packages are equipped with highly unstable self defense mechanisms. Pilots are advised to steer clear of any suspicious looking objects they encounter and report them immediately to the proper authorities.

Disposition: Defensive
Rarity: Uncommon
Region: Neutral Territories
As long as there is demand, there will be those willing to supply for the right price even the most abhorrent merchandise. And those who would supply must find a way to deliver the goods; seldom a difficult obstacle to overcome, as the lure of easy credits converts many an upstanding pilot into a skulking, hardened criminal. A seldom seem but ever-present scourge, the neutral zones house untold numbers of smugglers continually running contraband to contacts on faction borders. Most smugglers will launch a quick defense in the event they are discovered, but the bulky cargo vessels are modified for stealth, not combat, and generally pose little threat.


Escorted Smuggler
Escorted Smuggler
 

Disposition: Defensive
Rarity: Rare
Region: Neutral Territories
Few who take up the smuggling profession achieve their dreams of quickly and easily growing their wealth. Indeed, few even survive more than a few months; hunted mercilessly by authorities and bounty hunters, and frequently backstabbed by their colleagues in the underground, life as a smuggler is typically hard and short. There are, of course, always exceptions. A handful of smugglers are uncommonly good at their work and earn significant credits and respect among their peers. Addicted to life in the fast lane, these pilots often reinvest their wealth into their vessels making them bigger, faster, and better armed. Made bold with past success, they often hire mercenaries to act as escorts and bodyguards rather than rely solely on stealth. The wisdom of attacking such a group of renegades is questionable you would not be the first pilot to vanish forever into the sinister depths of a smuggler's cargo hold.


Slave Trader
Slave Trader
 

Disposition: Hostile
Rarity: Rare
Region: Universal, in the vicinity
of class D planets
While many moral deviants found their way into the slave trade by chance, just as a majority of pirates had, so too had a good number been persuaded into the position by their former/current employers. As the need for lower prices and greater profits grows ever more prominent in the current age, so too will the means for such an end. Often funded by nameless corporations, allowing them to equip their ships with high-tech cloaking and weaponry systems, members of the Black Market Slave Trade are foes not to be trifled with. Even if you do manage to overpower their well equipped freighters, you might suddenly find yourself an unwelcome guest in many of the cluster's most prosperous sectors.


Famous Pirate
Famous Pirate
 

Disposition: Hostile
Rarity: Rare
Region: Universal
After years of proving themselves to the cosmos, a select few will carve their names forever in the stars. These men and women have rightfully earned themselves a permanent fixture on bounty boards stretching from the Cesoho Sector all the way to the Izar Sector. Each month the bounty on their heads goes up, yet each month they remain as one of the most prominent names listed. If your name is not as readily whispered amongst the stars be wary of facing off against one of these veteran scoundrels, for their fame has undoubtedly garnered them wealth, and their sleek, state of the art ships and weaponry will only further reflect their many achievements.
