The Black Flag
A group of outlaws formed during the Space Age among the Debris Zone. They are not merely a group of pirates, the Black Flag are made up of mercenaries, bounty hunters, fixers, etc. The largest group of them all are the pirates and thus, they are called the Black Flag.
After the ‘War of the Invaders’, there was a large number of refugees that arose from the redevelopment of the Stellar Nations and the issue of ownership over the new trade routes. As a result, the Black Flag grew rapidly in size and many revolutionaries arose. The majority of pirates that were captured were either independence fighters who were fighting for his nation’s freedom or the son of a wealthy governor who was working with natives of the planet. This has become so commonplace that it no longer surprises anyone.
