Burning Devils

From Holocron of Zend
Jump to: navigation, search

The Burning Devils are a merciless band of Twi’lek slavers notable for their red skin and fire-motif tattoos operating in Kala'uun, one of the largest cities on Ryloth. They frequent the Inferno (a bar on the fourth level of the city). Most know not to cross them; those who do are usually taken out into the depths of the sunward side and left there to burn (the Devils are notorious for risking death by venturing as far sunward as possible). They’ve recently started a new sideline trading in teenage Twi’lik girls and boys with musical talent, kidnapping them from Kala'uun as well as other nearby settlements.

They were dealt a major blow near the end of the Restoration Era (KOTOR) when a rival gang broke into their headquarters and liberated their slaves. A violent gang war ensued that saw many of the Devil's killed. The gang lives on as a shadow of their former selves, constantly scheming revenge.

In actuality, it was the Jedi padawans of the Unified Force Academy who secreted away the slaves, and who pin the blame on a rival gang.
