The Moon Bandits was a gang of pirates that once threatened the space-lanes, but were beaten back by the efforts of the Bounty Hunter Alliance. After their defeat, the remnants of the organization were later annexed by the Bounty Hunter Alliance as a squadron and rechristened "the Screaming Banshees." Its core personnel eventually joined Centrepoint Space Station (CSS) and, after several years, departed to establish the long-lived JUGANOTH Mining Corporation. Notable gang members of this organization included the legendary Friar Blues and his loyal companion Tal'ord the Wookiee.

History

In the inky twilight where smugglers and thieves ruled the galaxy, one pirate gang was feared by all and respected by even the Galactic Empire itself. These criminals — known as the Moon Bandits — were the jackals of the shipping lanes circa Year 0, preying upon everything. A self-styled "pirate clan" led by Friar Blues, a ruthless Human with an insatiable lust for Lum and a boorish charm, the Moon Bandits was primarily composed of smugglers and thieves, and plundered all that attracted their attention. One other band of pirates dared to challenge these rogues: The Raptor Pirates thought to make a name for themselves by muscling in on the Moon Bandits' territory. Through shrewd diplomacy on Friar's part, the Bandits made alliances with other criminal organizations, including smugglers and mercenaries. The Raptors were soon squelched, giving way once more to the Moon Bandits supremacy. Alas, times changed with the ascension of the Bounty Hunter Alliance. They ravaged small crime organizations like wild fire.

After their defeat by the Bounty Hunter Alliance, the Bandits merged with that organization. As such, the Moon Bandits dissolved on Year 0 Day 218 and became the Screaming Banshees, a Bounty Hunter Alliance squadron. Eventually, the Screaming Banshees attracted the unwelcome attention of Princess Gabriella Storm's Black Sun crime syndicate. The exact cause of the feud between the two collectives remains undetermined, but some claim it was the bitter rivalry between Friar Blues and the ruler of Black Sun, Princess Storm. At the height of this feud, an unfortunate accident forced Friar Blues to retire from the Screaming Banshees. Sometime later Friar reappeared as head of the station security of Centrepoint Space Station. In later years it was rumored a Lum addiction had finally caught up with him; however, there were whispers that he was plotting a new scheme.

This was confirmed when a long time comrade, Tal'ord the Wookiee, joined Friar at Centrepoint Space Station as second-in-command of station security. Soon afterward, Friar, Tal'ord, and several ex-Moon Bandits broke off once again to establish the JUGANOTH Mining Corporation.
