Dark Princess Gabriella Storm was a Kaalan noblewoman and the first ruler of the Black Sun crime syndicate. A galactic personality, she later came to epitomize the ruthless politics and corruption alleged to be characteristic of Black Sun. Very little in fact is known of Princess Storm's criminal activities, and the extent of her complicity in the political machinations of her organization is unclear.
In Year 5, Emperor Vodo Bonias of the Galactic Empire installed Storm as ruler of the New Anzat Order (later known as the Anzatan Commonwealth). She came to be blamed for the excessive persecutions carried out under her rule. For this reason, Anzati historians characterize Storm as an autocrat who brutally subjugated the Anzati populace and executed all those who opposed her reign. However, she was removed from power when implicated in an Eidolan plot that resulted in the embezzlement of the Xucphra Corporation, an Imperial medical supplier.
Born and educated on the planet of Kaala in the Corporate Sector, Princess Gabriella Storm desired a career in the Galactic Empire, but later was recruited into Black Sun. Storm is perhaps most remembered for her lengthy tenure as ruler of Black Sun, a powerful crime syndicate which exerted considerable influence in the various galactic governments. Circa Year 1, the organization was infamous for its involvement in backroom politics and illegal activities, such as piracy and smuggling.
During this time, Princess Storm had a close working relationship with Zee Davin Wolf, the Supreme Commander of the Rebel Alliance. Soon, trade flourished between the Rebels and Black Sun. Despite Black Sun's clandestine trading with the Rebel Alliance, Storm was also a close associate of the Imperial High Command; in particular, Storm was an unwavering friend of Emperor Spytek. This rapport was illustrated when Spytek — overthrown from the Galactic Empire — and joined Black Sun as a personal adviser to Storm, soon joined also by Lady Dyvel Price.
Princess Storm was always a sharp expert at public relations and her friendship toward Spytek did not prevent her to also establish relationships with other prominent figures of the Galactic Empire. It has been established for example that she hosted Admiral Gorn Veynom allowing him to heal and recover after the injuries he underwent during the battle following Spytek's Downfall. Rumors spread about a very close relationship between the Admiral and the Princess but no evidence survived until today.
Throughout the formative years of Black Sun, Princess Storm was at odds with a variety of successive collectives led by Friar Blues such as the Moon Bandits, the Screaming Banshees and the JUGANOTH Mining Corporation. The exact cause of these feuds is unknown.
When the Imperial Core was formed on Year 1 Day 214, Storm became a public ally of the organization. She purportedly assisted Fleet Admiral Simms and Lieutenant General Jennifer Dreighton in its creation.
On Year 1 Day 318, Storm stepped down as leader of Black Sun and joined the Imperial Core. According to legend, Storm had grown bored with her continuing success at Black Sun. She faked her death in order to escape and join The Core. Upon learning of her membership in The Core, her loyal friends in Black Sun chose to follow her and joined The Core as well. In her wake, Dark Prince Blood acted as steward during this interregnum for Black Sun. Blood did his best to maintain peace and stability until a legitimate successor could emerge. After a long deliberation among the upper echelons of Black Sun, Keevan Colton was chosen as the new Dark Prince. Keevan gradually stabilized and rebuilt the organization.
For several years, Storm remained a prominent supporter of the Imperial Core. She used her considerable influence to expand the organization, and some believe the organization would have perished without her patronage. When the Imperial Core merged with the Sith Order and formed the Dark Empire, Storm was appointed the Minister of State. However, she had become disillusioned and reportedly feuded with Vodo Bonias, the warlord of the Dark Empire. Later, Storm would begin publicly denouncing him.
On Year 3 Day 218, Princess Storm defected from the Dark Empire to the Galactic Empire. Many observers believed her defection was one of the reasons why, a week later, the Dark Empire and the Galactic Empire declared a truce. Several months later, on Year 3 Day 290, a merger was announced between the Dark Empire and the Galactic Empire. Throughout this chaotic period and the later crisis in which Emperor Charon was deposed as ruler of the Galactic Empire, Storm held key positions in the Imperial High Command and was greatly respected.
On Year 5 Day 329, Emperor Vodo Bonias brokered a deal with Admiral Enzo Delaere to install Princess Storm as leader of New Anzat Order. Delaere agreed to the faustian pact and his staff turned the government over to the Galactic Empire. Once Storm was seated on the throne of Anzat, she allegedly executed all those who opposed her reign. These actions sparked a rebellion and Storm's reign over the Anzati people was soon widely disdained throughout the galaxy.
Storm was further disgraced when implicated in an Eidolan plot that resulted in the dissolution of Xucphra Corporation, an Imperial medical company. On Year 5 Day 356, Storm was replaced as sovereign of the New Anzat Order by Moff Vlademar von Ismay, the youngest legitimate son of the late Victor von Ismay.
- "I am inevitable...."
- "I have always been and will always be the one true leader of the Black Sun."
- "I was educated on my home planet of Kaala, in the Corporate Sector, and hoped for a career in the Empire. Unfortunately that was not to be, since all the Emperor at the time — Vodo — offered was a place in his little harem. A few years later, I joined Black Sun."
- "I like long walks on the beach, champagne, and galactic domination."
