"Despite his piracy, it is difficult to truly hate Rus, who as least operates with some style. His is smug, overconfident and roguish. He is a pirate more for the sport of it than the material gain, and his bloodless record is a point in his favor."
General Airen Cracken[src]

Beyla Rus was a "gentleman pirate" who operated a CR90 corvette, along with approximately sixty other beings, who made up the vessel's crew. A Human male from Tibro, he and his ship were active during the Galactic Civil War.


Beyla Rus was born on the planet Tibro in 24 BBY. A pirate, Rus and his crew terrorized the space lanes for several years. Styling himself as a "gentleman pirate," his crew was never known to kill anyone and used stun weapons. Rus preferred his victims alive to spread tales of his exploits. During the Galactic Civil War, Rus was careful not to anger either the Alliance to Restore the Republic or Galactic Empire, preferring to target merchant vessels. However, with the rise of the New Republic, Rus took to raiding their cargo ships. How he obtained information on his targets was unknown, although Rus claimed to be able to small a trap a parsec away. Rus was charged with theft, piracy, and destruction of New Republic property. The New Republic posted a reward of 15,000 credits for his capture.[1]
