The Pykes

Spice Dealers

Details

Description

Profiting from the poor decisions made by a galaxy facing difficult times, the Pykes have positioned themselves into power as the preeminent spice dealers in the galaxy. During the Clone Wars, they were able to keep a steady supply of the illicit substances funneling into the stores of some of the most influential crime families operating in the lower levels of Coruscant. From their well-guarded stronghold on Oba Diah, the Pykes oversaw the distribution of fresh narcotic spice harvested by slaves and other unfortunates toiling for the pampered barons living in comfort on the unspoiled side of Kessel. The Pykes relied on smugglers and unscrupulous freighter captains to pull off foolhardy Kessel Runs to deliver their prize to customers eager to pay top credit for the destructive, addictive substance.
