House Black is a militaristic merchant family that participates in a variety of martial interests throughout the galaxy. Dominic von Black has recently taken over as Baron von Black, and has begun to turn the Family into a more Militaristic Trade Family.

Family History

House Black's roots stretch back to the golden age of the Old Republic, a time of booming commerce and vibrant trade routes. They weren't warriors or Jedi, but shrewd negotiators and cunning businessmen who built their fortune on mercantile ventures, mining operations, and the lucrative trade in luxury goods. Their starships, sleek and efficient, crisscrossed the galaxy, carrying exotic spices from Kessel, delicious whiskey from Corellia, and high-end furniture from Naboo.

The rise of the Empire brought both opportunity and peril for House Black. They shrewdly navigated the political currents, pledging allegiance to the Emperor while maintaining a healthy distance from the stormtroopers and Inquisitors. Their loyalty was rewarded with a noble title – Baron von Black – and lucrative contracts to supply essential goods to Imperial outposts and garrisons across the galaxy.

Baron Dmitri von Black, the last Baron before Dominic, was a man of ambition and a taste for the finer things in life. He saw the Empire's growing thirst for vice and indulgence as a new market ripe for exploitation. He pivoted the family business, turning away from mundane trade and forging unsavory partnerships with the Hutts. Ryll, spice, and even slaves became his commodities, funneled through a network of nightclubs and pleasure colonies that catered to the Empire's elite.

Family Dynamics

With the Rise of the Empire, The Family has adopted its xenophobic tendencies toward aliens, and only allowed Humanoid Setients within its Bloodline. The Head of the Family retains the hereditary title of Baron, while others of the direct line have the title of Lord, or Lady. Those outside the main line are titled Lo-Lord/Lady, Or Lower Lord/Lady.

Family Relations

With the current Baron of House Black, the Family retains friendship with Royal House Ismay, House Kain, the Kiffar Clan Nah`utal,and House Morbus
