The Lost Order of Shadows have been less focused on harvesting drifting shipwrecks, and more focused on specific individual ships with questionable provenance, whose actual owners are often shrouded in mysterious business transactions. Most other recycling companies contain their operations within city limits where room must be created for more modern buildings, but these Shadow operatives have been spotted exploring ancient burial sites and lost temples out in vast planetary deserts.
During the Great Hyperspace War, the Jedi employed specially-trained agents called Jedi Shadows, often recruited from their Consular corps, to seek out and destroy dangerous Sith artifacts and talismans of power. There have also been rumors of a secret sect of Force users hidden somewhere in the Outer Rim who make use of shadows to conceal their movements and operations. It’s unclear whether The Lost Order of Shadows are connected to either of these groups.
Isolated by their own expeditions, they have turned away from public salvage and reclamation endeavors and only look to fill their ranks with those who are familiar with the once-common artifacts known as “books,” as well as those with a familiarity with ancient Force artifacts. They also seem willing, even eager, to hire veterans of combat, especially those with experience on battlefields like the War of the Hosnian Succession, and the bitter plains of the Vectinia Massacre.
Shrouded in shadows, with conflicting rumors and reports of suspicious missions, The Lost Order of Shadows is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. But maybe that in itself is a clue to their future activities.
