Outlaws on the run, a small group of men found themselves at the edge of known space, forced into hiding by a world that rejected them. This small band of brothers, alone in the galaxy, swore an oath of complete loyalty to eachother. An official charter was written, and as a symbol, the glowing-orange skull was chosen... Thus The Skulls Swoop Gang was born!
In their beginning, The Skulls called Wild Space their home, making sure that the sector's name was true. The Skulls made their name by savagely raiding any supply ship that made the mistake of traveling through Wild Space. Typically, the only evidence left after an attack by The Skulls was the burnt-out remnants of a ship, and the skull of its captain... dipped orange and hung as a display and a warning to others. The Skulls do not 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 quickly made a name for themselves, built on their bloody reputation. Seeing someone wearing the Glowing-Orange Skull in public meant one thing; Blood would soon run in the streets. The Skulls were known to deliberately turn their Swoop Bikes into crowds of civilians, sometimes as a tactic to distract law enforcement from their other criminal activities... or to simply cause mayhem.
After gaining several members, and creating such a feared reputation, The Skulls have since left Wild Space with their sights set on other worlds in the Galaxy.
The Skulls are also well-known not only for their savage attitudes and violent reputation, but also for their role in the spice trade, dealing primarily in Polstine Spice, and Ryll.
Patched Members of The Skulls are easily identifiable by their distinctive set of armour, and by their helmets which displays a holographic skull in an orange glow. The display was designed to strike instant fear into the hearts of anyone that sees it.
