You have the current association in your head from your recent activities on Cassilis. You understand Kuylen (Larios, not Anaz) used those pirates as his muscle back in the day.

Ohhh...

"I would have thought that the Red Lance would have been dismantled after the encounters they had with Master Gundark's team. But I'm afraid my knowledge of them is limited to that."

The name of the clan means very little to Gallagher, and so he just listens.

"On the contrary," says Windu. "Thhe pirates took some significant losses at the time, but in the long-term they benefitted the most from that incident."

"Perhaps I should explain the complete background here," says Mundi, in his ever calm and measured voice.

"That would be appreciated," Gallagher says. "Jelena may have some idea of who these guys are... but I have none at all."

Gallagher had only met Master Gundark once, during their mission to protect the Viceroy of the Trade Federation, and sadly drew away too little of her wisdom during their short time together. He had been added to the team later in that assignment, just in time for Gundark's poisoning, which Sienar witnessed, oddly enough.

(Bah, I hate missing the first page... Pardon the long post, I still want to make an introduction. Let's assume Andro took the greetings in a good mood. He's feeling better about himself these days.)

Ando stands beside his comrades, listening carefully to the Council give their mandate. He was very grateful for a new assignment. Not only was it a chance to prove himself worthy of the Jedi title, but it was a chance to [/i]get out[/i] of the temple for a while. He didn't deny for a moment that he'd deserved the reprimand and then needed the counciling after the Spiridos and Mandragos missions. But it was getting tiresome to feel as if your mental status was being constantly monitored.

Andro did feel that the counciling had helped. He no longer obsessed about his fighting skills. Certainly he kept them up, as to let any useful skill lag was wasteful and unwise. But he no longer pursued improvements relentlessly, instead he focussed more on the other aspects of the Force which he showed aptitude for.

As a part of his healing, he had also rebuilt his lightsaber. It didn't take Andro long in his reflections to realise that instead of a model of simplicity, his saber and harness were in fact the height of arrogance. With is, Andro was unconsciously announcing his superiority with the lightsaber, possesing and carrying a blade like no other. When he first built it with a smooth featureless body and hidden activation stud, he'd made the excuse for it's unorthodox design on his imagined belief in simplicity. In fact the thing had been maddeningly hard to make and took tireless training late a night to learn to draw and activate as fast as the Jedi with 'normal' blades. That, and it's special harness worn on his hip like some sort of Jedi Gunslinger was also eliminated. Andro had re-shelled his original saber with a conventional grip and activation controls, and made attached a clip at it's base to hang the saber on his belt like almost every other Jedi in history had.

This mission would be the first to test the 'new' Andro, and he was excited for the chance.

"The Red Lance operated in an area of space dominated by the Damagran Confederacy. This Confederacy is an island of civilisation in a lawless region of space. The planet Damagran itself is the heart of a 13 planet strong mini-empire- the Confederacy- whose passage into the Republic was always tumultuous. Despite the diffculties, having the Confederacy in the Republic was for the good of things. It extended the reach of civilisation and protection to the citizens of the Galaxy.

"The problem is, where there is stability, there is prosperity. Where there is prosperity, there are riches and trade. These things attract pirates. Damagran is quite a militaristic society, yet the rewards for piracy were so strong that the Red Lance was able to meet them head on for some while. Eventually, as Damagran rose in stability, the piracy problem was contained. The Red Lance made enough to continue to exist, but they were no maor threat.

"This changed a few years ago. A powerful triple alliance formed. A demagogue named Faylar was leading a separatist movement on Damagran itself. Such sentiment is strong on Damagran. He allied himself with Pelloran, the leader of the Red Lance. But this alliance was arranged by the third man in the group- the infamous Kuylen, back then thought long dead. Kuylen needed access to a remote planet in the Confederacy that had some items he found important to him. He needed Faylar's political backing to use the area of space, and the resources and military backing of Pelloran.

"With this alliance in place, the Red Lance grew in power tremendously. A side effect of Kuylen's ice mining operation on Avalar- the world he sought- was the extraction of exceptionally valuable crystals. Faylar and Pelloran both benefited greatly from this arrangement. Kuylen did not ask for a cut, just continued access to Avalar. The pirates benefited from riches, and new arms with which to plunder. Faylar benefited from the money and also because the growing strength of the pirates discredited his political opponents and encouraged people to believe his separatist views.

"And so it was- ignorant of the full truth- that the Senate faced in Damagran a problem similar to the one we have now. The pirates were tearing commerce in the area to shreds, and yet the Republic was doing nothing. Sensitive to the growing possibility of Damagranian independence, the Senate dispatched an armed cruiser to try and repel the pirate attacks. This cruiser was a threat to the while operation. Kulyen volunteered to deal with it. He sent his agents to destroy the cruiser in-dock near the Confederacy- which they did, taking much of the dock with it.

“That incident made galactic news, which brought the intervention of the Jedi. Our team was originally sent to investigate the destruction of the dock and bring down the pirates. But on Jaglan Beta- one of the worlds of the Confederacy, by that point effectively owned by the Red Lance- they found Kuylen's trail, and from there on it became another story. The mission to destroy the pirates was forgotten.

“Not that they didn't suffer. The triple alliance fell apart as each man involved saw to his own future in the wake of the Jedi's arrival. Pelloran moved first and attempted to eliminate Kuylen and the Jedi at the same time. He failed, and the battle on Jaglan Beta killed a great many pirates. But Pelloran him,self escaped. A portion of his spacer fighter force was later destroyed by the loyalist Confederates in orbit around Avalar, but again, Pelloran was not there. Kuylen went on to meet his effective end far outside the Galactic rim, but not before his agents eliminated Faylar. This left Damagran stabilised once more and destroyed Faylar's faction... but it left Pelloran in sole control of the riches extracted from Avalar.”

"Meaning that Pelloran was left with a vast amount of wealth with which to rebuild his pirate clan," Jelena comments.

"Indeed so," says Mundi. "We have known the wealth from Avalar has been around for some years. It is with this wealth that Faylar attracted the services of the bounty hunter Balek, and Pelloran subsequently renewed the contract. However, long before Balek met his end on roben, that contract had lapsed. Things had mvoed on- yet the wealth was unspent.

"Evidently, Pelloran was rebuilding his force. With the wealth from Avalar, his pirates returned to power as strong as they ever were, preying on still-delicate Damagran area."

"I am guessing that the original team sent to Damagran could not be assembled for this task, so you needed Jedi with OUR skills," Gallagher says, "and that Damagran wants a lasting solution to the pirate problem. Removing Pelloran as a threat and handing the wealth of Avalar over to the Damagran system would definitely help stabilize the area, and improve their ties to the Republic."

Jelena feels that Gallagher's response has covered her own thoughts.

"Is there any risk of Pelloran still working with any of Kuylen's lackeys? Maybe ones that did not follow him to his death or anything of that sort."

"Ah, I am afraid we have not been clear," says Windu. "The situation so far described was not the sitatuon now. Although Pelloran is well-funded with good targets, the Damagran authorities have been trying to curtail his activities. In these... difficult times, the Senate is less inclined to intervene in areas that have their own ability to enforce law. Irritaitng as Pelloran was, I am afraid that we Jedi are more badly needed elsewhere. After all, it was only the destructon of the space dock that sent us out the first time; Pelloran has normally been careful not to be so spectacular."

"Ah, I see," Jelena says. "Has Pelloran been successful thus far in avoiding incidents that would require Jedi attention?"

"It's a big galaxy and there are only so many Jedi," says Windu, always just that tiny bit les formal than his fellows. Though pehraps there is a hint of concern in that voice as well.

"Things have now changed," says Mundi. "Much to the surprise of the authorities... Pelloran has abandoned the Confederacy."

"Really?" Gallagher says. "What could make that old pirate abandon his accustomed hunting grounds?"

"It is hard to tell the minds of the priate clans," says Mundi. "It may be that the damage from the constant struggle with the Damagran forces was getting beyond his abiltiy to make good. At Damagran, they are overjoyed, of course. But now others suffer. Pelloran has taken his fleet and moved inwards."

"Closer to the Republic?" Gallagher asks. "A surprising move... what area of space has he preyed upon now?"

"These are areas that are not well defended," says Windu. "The Red Lance has turned to easier pickings. They are no longer attacking trade routes. Backed by their naval power, the pirates are making surface landings. They are attackinng planets- places that, unlike Damagran, do not have the capacity to fight back against such well-equipped foes."

"Absolutely. The problem is not that the palces are ltierally incapable of defending themselves. At first the pirates weere attacking remote outposts, but now they are attacking fully inhabited worlds. These worlds may niot have the sophisitication of the inner planets but they have their own military forces. It is the tactics the pirates are adopting that the worlds are unable to react to- they are poorly organised and do not work well together. Damagran could co-ordinate its anti-piracy efforts between systems. Where the pirates are now, it is every world for itself."
