Based out of Wild Space, The Skulls SG has become one of the Galaxy’s most feared Swoop Gangs. The group is notorious for raiding any supply ship passing through Wild Space. Typically, the only things that remain after an attack are the burnt-out remnants of a ship, and the skull of the ships Captain. The group generally doesn’t leave survivors, but they have been known to free slaves, and prisoners when transports carrying them are foolish enough to enter into their territory.
The Skulls are also well-known for their role in the spice trade, dealing primarily in Polstine Spice, and Ryll. Possession of Polstine Spice is punishable by death in most systems, and Skulls prospects have been known to drive their swoops into crowded areas to avoid being caught with it. This makes them very difficult to catch.
Members of The Skulls are easily identifiable due to their distinctive set of armour, and skull helmet. Members earn a skull patch each time they win a swoop race; these patches are placed on the sleeves of their armour. Typically, the more skull patches one has, the more experienced they are.
