Eidola, more formally known as the Eidola Pirates, is the largest and most notorious organized gang of pirates in the galaxy. Although the group controls numerous galactic sectors, their activities seem primarily concentrated throughout the eastern regions of the galaxy, particularly within Hutt Space. Originally founded by the notable scammer and thief, Keir Santage, and subsequently led by his daughter, Teniel Djo, the pirate gang evolved from a small nucleus of thieves circa Year 4 into a powerful government.

History

Eidola began as a small tight-knit group of thieves under the leadership of Keir Santage. Early members included Bruce Spear, Derek Solo, and Lloyd Font. The group of freelancers eventually moved into Outrider Trading after Keir was given its leadership, and the company was transformed into a den of thieves who became widely regarded as the best in the galaxy's criminal underworld. Keir later sold Outrider Trading and purchased a medical company called Biotech Medical, and the group moved to the new company, picking up new recruits like Utono Brutza along the way. Later they sold Biotech and created a new collective from scratch that they named Malebranche, consisting of two separate but similarly named groups. Soon after, one of the two Malebranche groups became Eidola.

Keir led Eidola for barely five months before his alleged death in Year 5, and the group was passed on to his teenage daughter, Teniel Djo. Colloquially nicknamed the Pirate Queen, which became the informal title of the pirate group's leader, she rapidly rose to galactic fame through her clever confidence scams and her charismatic media appearances, and she transformed the group of pirates into a formal government over many of the Outer Rim Territories. She led the group for seven years before committing suicide in the Maw in Year 12, along with a handful of fellow pirates and a number of Eidola's finest ships. This left Eidola in the hands of Warlord Squall Chitose.

Chitose led Eidola as its Pirate King for five years. During his tenure, he strove to expand the pirate-controlled territory throughout the galaxy, and Hutt Space was secured as Eidolan territory under his leadership. Although the group historically did not pay its members any salary, preferring to rely on the common distribution of ill-gotten gains, Chitose instituted a small monthly salary to ensure that even the newer and less experienced pirates would have some resources while learning the ropes. Despite being publicly painted as a carefree drunk, he engaged in diplomatic negotiations with various galactic entities in the pirates' best interests. But over the years, he found himself increasingly less able to participate in the pirate group's operations, and in Year 17, his former second in command and close friend Syn replaced him as leader of the group.

Since assuming leadership, Syn began to focus more of her attention inwardly on the internal organization of the group and the wellbeing of her fellow pirates. She realized that the majority of Eidola's vast resources were going unused and began to distribute them freely, assigning new quartermasters and enabling them to develop the group's space in order to create an enormous haven for pirates within their systems. She provided the pirates with the means to undertake their own operations both overtly and covertly, and enabled them to accrue enormous sums of credits by putting Eidola's resources to good use. In a somewhat questionable move, she also ended her predecessor's diplomatic efforts and declared all groups within the galaxy a fair target for the pirates.
