Sol Mazer is the Leader of the Smugglers Guild (Yr 11 to present). During the closure of the Guild (see below), he held a board position with long time ally Knights of the Fountain. Mazer is also known as the "President of Charmath."



Solomon (Sol) Mazer grew up as many Corellian young- going to school to become a productive citizen. He progressed through the Corellian education system earning average marks and managed a placement Corellia University. While pursuing a degree in geology, he was employed as a crewman for an government run parcel service alongside his brother, Nah Olos . It was here that he learned how to handle a starship (light freighters and gunships). Upon graduation from university, he found employment as a prospector with a now defunct mining operation in the Corellian sector. Mazer often piloted the ships to his surveying jobs as well as handled the vehicles. While employed as a prospector, Mazer discovered a number of significant mineral deposits.

Introduction to the Smugglers Guild

Early Year 8, Nah Olos tapped Mazer to prospect a very notable moon belonging to the Smugglers Guild: Nar Shadda. The Guild needed a full survey, but didn't want an untrusted entity on their base of operations. Olos, a ranked Smuggler at the time, recommended Mazer. The official contact came through Jaggo Bral who would also handle Mazer while on the moon. His aptitude with starships, as well as his technical knowledge, made him an valuable find for the Guild. Olos would proceed to ask Mazer to help move gear and conscripts on the Guild's behalf from time to time. Mazer agreed- the extra money was good and the danger was low. It was during one of these deliveries that Mazer met Guild Leader Metuki Ryuujin. The meeting was brief but noteworthy. Mazer was offered Hopeful status in the Guild which he accepted on the spot as he was drawn to the possibility of a larger role in the Galaxy. It is also thought that the chance to work with Nah Olos was too good to pass.

Freelance Trader

Adhering to the tenants of the Guild, Mazer advertised himself as a "Freelance Trader" and kept his Guild membersbip secret. As a Trader, Mazer enjoyed much success and established numerous contacts. He would host auctions that were more akin to social events and usually ended up being very lucrative for the Hopeful Smuggler.

Putting himself forward as a trusted trader allowed Mazer to become a self sufficient Smuggler as well. The Guild needed operatives that could be available and self-reliant; to which Mazer fit the description. Within his first year of being a Hopeful, Mazer earned his first million credits, paid off the freighter on loan from the Guild, and had a respectable amount of clients. As a result, the Guild permitted Mazer to sell some of the rarer items they had (Imperial armors and uniforms as examples). Because of Mazer's ability to bring people to his auctions, these items would fetch a high price. As a result, Mazer was promoted from Hopeful to Smuggler during Year 9.

Maintaining his Freelancer status became increasingly difficult due to the fact Mazer was constantly being recruited by legitimate organisations. Mazer decided to make himself unavailable in the eyes of recruiters by co-founding an organisation of his own. Together with fellow Trader Ma-Nak Kwel, they established the Galaxy-Wide Spacer's Union (GWSU) (founded Year 9). This group was dedicated to providing reasonable shipping for anyone to anywhere. The group was entirely Freelancers, with the exception of Mazer who maintained his Smuggler status with the Guild. Through the GWSU, Mazer would add more names to his contact list. Regrettably, with the passing of Ma-Nak Kwel, the GWSU closed its doors (Year 10); but Mazer would go on to become employed by fellow member Sorel Karr (Year 10 through early Year 11). Again, this helped to provide Mazer the excuse of not joining with any other corporation or government. It should also be noted that during Year 11 Mazer was promoted again from Smuggler to Master Smuggler.

Leader of the Smugglers Guild

By mid Year 11, then Leader of the Smugglers Guild, Nah Olos, grew tired of the position and bureaucracy. He decided to retire and elevated Mazer to Leader of the Guild. Though Syran Fattel was 2nd in command, Mazer was picked due to his interest in the position, capability as a Trader, and the network of contacts he had at that time. Mazer was also a man that could be trusted and while being a Smuggler was always a label, it was well known that Mazer never went back on his word.

As Leader of the Smugglers Guild, Mazer was essentially outed as a member of a criminal organisation- but that didn't keep him from continuing his craft as a Trader. Mazer held his auction events and market offerings as if he was like any other Trader. The Guild was pulled along into the public eye to a degree. Mazer would hold press conferences, enjoy the celebrity of his position, and pursue his adventurous interests. The Guild remained an underworld, secretive establishment; but, Mazer remained accessible. As a result, the Guild enjoyed a good deal of profit- all of which would be needed to ensure the future of Mazer's project planet: Charmath.

Planet Charmath

Mazer's biggest goal as Leader was protecting the Charmath System and establishing the Guild as its governing force. The backwater planet is located in the center of Farrfin Sector, which is controlled by the Galactic Empire. Charmath was a Guild acquisition through close ally Knights of the Fountain in Year 9. The planet was fortunately mislabeled as a gas planet, when in fact it was a sizable terrestrial. This error may have protected Charmath for a long time, but Mazer was sure that would not last. Using the profits gained through trading Guild assests, or Guild technology, Mazer pushed a monumental building effort on Charmath. This construction would not only provide planetary shields, but also bring numerous immigrants to the world with the promise of a fresh start. The effort was a success, and Charmath enjoyed the safety of its defensive shield, as well as the protection of the Smugglers Guild. In a gesture of gratitude, Mazer was elected as President of Charmath in Year 10 though no formal election was held and no campaign run. Mazer served one term and retains the title as an honorific.

Mazer would also put his Guild to use in other capcities. In Year 10, he "invaded" the Wyl system with "Smugglers Guild Informational Kiosks." These were in fact sensory satellites placed throughout the system, as well as one Guild escape pod, for the sole purpose of attracting defectors from the Galactic Empire. Also of note, is Mazer's participation in the exploration of a sentient space station with a team of adventurers. These events helped to show that Mazer was not content to have the Guild viewed as an organisation that avoided exposure. His goal was to make the galaxy understand the Guild was as capable as any other group and would campaign as it desired.

Dissolution of the Smugglers Guild

Though Mazer enjoyed success as a Leader, many issues plagued him. The retirement of Nah Olos was one of the major losses to Mazer. Though he fully understood his step-brother's decision, Olos was sorely missed. Mazer would also begin to voice his concern over the galactic economy and the Guild's place in a "cold war" environment (see news article below). Finally, the over use of planetary shields countered the Guild's ability to get their wares in marketable locations.

With declining membership and concerns over the Guild's place in the galaxy, Mazer decided to close the more public side of the faction mid Year 15. The Charmath System was "sold" to the Knights of the Fountain (Year 14) and the moon Nar Shadda handed over to the Eidola Pirates (Year 16). All other Guild property (ships, gear, and properties) went to Mazer (though retirement packages were offered to Guild members in good standing). Mazer did state that the lesser known underworld side of the Smugglers Guild would persist in some measure, but this has never been confirmed. Regardless, it is reported that Mazer still owns numerous items and ships of profound value (including the modified freighter Bloodstripe).

The Smugglers Guild Reopens

Mazer disappeared from public eye for almost all of Year 15 up through Year 19. His absence was spent mostly by taking a position with close ally the Knights of the Fountain. For a time, he held a Board Member position with them and assisted in the oversight of Charmath.

During late Year 19, Mazer reopened the public side of the Smugglers Guild with the support of Eidola Pirates and Jax Starblade. It is assumed he used some of his personal wealth to bring the Guild back into public standing. Jax Starblade, magistrate of Nar Shadda, continues to ensure that the Guild has access to its headquarters (returned to the Guild by Eidola Pirates)on Nar Shadda.
