"We are a revolutionary group of beings from all different species who believe in the individual rights of each being in the galaxy. They believe that each person has the right to freedom; freedom from oppression, freedom from tyranny, and freedom from unjust treatment. People have a right to choose their government, not to have one forced upon them. That a government should listen to its citizens and serve them, rather than the other way around. We fight for the people and are comprised of the people. They are the galaxy's heroes, martyrs, friends and family, willing to lay their lives down for the greater good."
Night Thieves' Revolutionary Manifesto

The Night Thieves, often abbreviated as "NT," was one of the galaxy's most violent and prominent terrorist organizations during the reigns of Emperors Piett and Trey Connel. The Night Thieves described themselves as an anarchistic urban guerrilla movement engaged in armed resistance against all forms of authority. They specifically targeted large governments such as the Rebel Alliance.

The ragtag organization was formed in Year 1 Day 185 and led by Owan D'arc a.k.a. "Anti-Tarkin," Mithrander, Idalia and C'Teal.[2] They existed until Year 3, committing numerous operations, including an attempted coup d'état within the Rebel Alliance that resulted in the removal of Supreme Commander Shae Briston. Following D'arc's disappearance from the galaxy, the organization was incorporated into Hammers Slammers in Year 3 Day 98.

History

The collective known as the Night Thieves was founded by Owan D'arc (also known as "Anti-Tarkin") a month after he left Centrepoint Space Station (CSS).

Owan D'arc was Director of the Night Thieves.

The original purpose of the Night Thieves remains unclear. Many individuals assumed they were anarchists, pirates, or insurrectionists. The Night Thieves soon issued a series of political commentaries criticizing the major galactic governments in the galaxy. The response of one of these governments, the Rebel Alliance, was to brand the Night Thieves as "terrorists." Within months the Night Thieves were joined by Rik Avner and Cloud Carbine. D'arc, Avner and Carbine would become the nucleus of the group.

On Year 2 Day 40, the Night Thieves and Rebel Alliance opened discussions regarding a strategic alliance. A month later, the alliance was officially announced. By Year 2 Day 130, the pact disintegrated after the Night Thieves were accused of supporting a coup within the Rebel Alliance. These accusations led to the removal of Supreme Commander Shae Briston from the Rebel Alliance. Briston was replaced as leader by David "Dr. Fro" Salohah who assumed power under the new title of President of the Rebel Alliance. All rebel officers with ties to the Night Thieves were dismissed; other members were court-martialed.

Within months, the relationship between D'arc and Avner became strained for undetermined reasons. Avner parted ways with D'arc and later became a religious devotee of Alissma. After Avner left, the Night Thieves experienced internal turmoil and, on Year 2 Day 263, Carbine departed the Night Thieves and started a new company known as Paradox Resource Exploration.

By Year 2 Day 360, the activity of the Night Thieves had dropped dramatically. They issued a public statement that they were voiding all bounties on their enemies. Their diplomatic stance towards the Rebel Alliance was declared to be "neutral." On Year 3 Day 98, D'arc stepped down as leader of the Night Thieves and the remnants of the group became a mercenary subgroup of Hammers Slammers.

Eventually, D'arc attempted to rebuild the Night Thieves. Whether or not he was successful remains unknown.[2]
