The Byne Guild was a guild[1] based in in the outer reaches of the galaxy during the High Republic Era. Owning a fleet of starships, the guild was headed by Scover Byne.[2] One of the Guild's ships, the Legacy Run, which was captained by the military veteran Hedda Casset, was destroyed in the crisis known as the Great Disaster.[1] The Guild was dissolved not long before the dedication of the Starlight Beacon space station after Byne was reported to Galactic Republic authorities for abusing laws relating to the treatment of indentured workers.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Byne Guild was created for the Star Wars: The High Republic multimedia project, and first appeared in the novel The High Republic: Light of the Jedi.[1] All pre-released excerpts of Light of the Jedi named the organization the "Byrne" Guild, so the proper spelling was unknown until the novel's final release.[4]

  3. The Star Wars Book dates the launch of the Starlight Beacon to 232 years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which corresponds to 232 BBY in the dating system used by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. As The High Republic: Into the Dark depicts the launch, its events, including the dissolving of the Byne Guild, must take place around that year.
