2127.10 – The political situation between the dominions around the area known as The Badlands has attracted the attention of different powerful groups that are fighting to control the area and benefit from it. The Malthar’s Crime Syndicate, the Piracy Ring, the Thuldan Slave Ring and the Melange Smuggling Ring are the mayor ones on this “market competition”.
Star Devil – The Star Devils is the reigning faction of the organized Piracy Ring. Yep, those pesky sons of guns that stirred up so much trouble during the Volturnus Expedition are in power, under the leadership of one Lucifer Yurack (a.k.a. “the Star Devil” himself). No one has seen Lucifer in centuries, but his history is a rich one. It is believed that he is a cybernetic organism, which certainly explains his lengthy existence. Some theorize that he is even an agent of the Sathar.
Red Devil – The Red Devils are a mercenary outfit offshoot of the Star Devils with a similar insignia (a red demon’s head encircled with stars, as opposed to the Star Devil’s encircled full demon. Wild, unpredictable, and out of control (save for their allegiance to the Star Devil), they are the most dangerous and most ruthless.
The Piracy Ring also uses other kinds of bands or criminal groups as marine troops when they want to attack a bigger base or colony. This groups include the Judoon and The Rhino Troop, Dabbla Lang, The Bad Hunters and the Old Cykotek.
