"They say I'm the worst kind of pirate, ambushing unarmed ships to steal their cargoes. I say that's the best kind of pirate."
Kath Scarlet[src]

The Binayre Pirates were a band of pirates and smugglers that operated within the Corellian sector during the Galactic Civil War.

Description[edit | edit source]

"Have you seen those guys!? They'd kill us! Uhh, I mean, they'd kill us if we - if we showed up without weapons!"
―A commoner, to a spacer[src]

The Binayre Pirates operated in the Corellian sector[1] and were led by Captain Kath Scarlet.[2] The Binayre maintained two home bases on the twin worlds Talus and Tralus, and were among the lowest criminal elements on those worlds.[1] They were looked down upon as disreputable and untrustworthy even by other criminals.[4] Several of them wore the insignia of Black Sun.[2] On Talus, they operated from their bunker.[3] The Binayre Pirates were tracked by the Corellian Security Force and the Federation of the Double Worlds, and they were also in open conflict with the Aa'kuan anarchist.[5] After the Battle of Yavin, the Binayre Pirates controlled several areas of space in the Corellian system, including the Binayre Razorcat,[6] the Trifecta Star and the Rayless Lantern.[7] In space battles, the pirates flied M3-A Scyk fighters[8] and Z-95-AF4 Headhunters.[9]

History[edit | edit source]

"There's a bunch of Binayre pirates just around the corner who have a real nice place."
―A commoner, to a spacer[src]

Circa 1 ABY,[10] a commoner in the city of Dearic provided the coordinates of the Binayre Pirate Bunker on Talus to a spacer brave enough to visit it.[11]

Around the same time, Kath Scarlet and a group of Binayres pirates struggled on Talus against a spacer and an Imperial Security Bureau team led by Jeffren Brek for the control of the Z-95 Headhunter Dire Hound.[12]

The same year, Jabba the Hutt's bounty hunter Bronell dispatched a spacer to the Talusian pirate bunker in order to retrieve information about a CorSec officer who owned money to Jabba, as well as to the pirates.[13]
