Black Sun was formed at the end of the Great Galactic War. After the Sacking of Coruscant in 3,653 BBY, Galactic City soon fell into chaos and rioting, overwhelming the already stretched thin Coruscant Security Force police officers. Taking advantage of the situation, several prominent gangsters joined together and began seizing control of neighborhoods in the lower levels. With this, in reference to the gangsters, denizens of the lower levels coined the phrase “better a black sun than none” and the Black Sun crime syndicate was born. Black Sun quickly carved out a territory for itself and developed spice and weapons trafficking operations. Though their advance to claim more sectors was halted by the Justicars’ Brigade, the rioting and looting never stopped within their own territory. In the following years of the Cold War, Black Sun’s influence stretched beyond Coruscant and the gang became a galactic criminal syndicate. The Galactic Senate soon came to realize the full situation and CSF forces such as the Special Tactical Unit began actively fighting back to regain the sectors under Black Sun’s control. It was during this time that the Republic Strategic Information Service began joint operations with the CSF and Republic Military to counter Black Sun.
Salarr is the current leader of Black Sun, and has seven “Vigo’s” (tionese word for Nephew) beneath him who control his assets.
