We also have some in-canon pirate groups which we haven't gotten any treatment of! * The Tofs! An entire culture based on the British Empire that exists in the Rishi Maze and possesses vast powerful ships despite being a bunch of evil fat green slavers! * The Hapan Pirates! The male alternative to life as nothing more than breeding stock and servitiude (also many lower class women) * Admiral Tavira Well, much of her stuff actually WAS from this book but it'd be nice to imagine a write up for her. My idea is the Blazing Sword is a Rebel Alliance affiliate which is somewhat outside the chain of command and probably heavily associated with the Laramus Base Irregulars. They're guided by their religion and theatricality as much as direct action as anythin else so they're let more or less to do their own thing. Post-Endor, they basically refuse to conform to being part of the Establishment (though quite a number of veterans retire or return to recreate their former organization). They remain a scourge of the spacelanes for slavers and the Imperial Remnant until the end of their careers, though. As for Captain Akira? My view is she doesn't become a Jedi Knight but does complete her Force training and becomes her own very distinct tradition. As Luke Skywalker says, "There's many ways to serve the Light."
