The Nuro pirates were a group of pirates that were active throughout the time of the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems. Like several other pirate groups, the Confederacy's capture of the Nuro pirates was deprioritized by the Separatist Head of State, Count Dooku. As a result, Dooku arranged terms with the pirates and encouraged their harrassment of Republic supply lines during the war.
