Talon Karrde

A smuggler chief with a vast business. While being very pragmatic, he did not deal with slavers and kidnapping and was extremely loyal to his associates. He once had a base on Mrkyr during the Thrawn era and had the misfortune of being caught in the crossfire between Luke Skywalker and the Empire.  He was considered an information broker, willing to trade intel for credits or favors. After the Imperial Remnant and New Republic signed a peace treaty, he became a neutral third party supplying intel to both sides.
