"Trash... just not approved trash."
―Cal Kestis on the treatment of Scrapper Guild workers[src]

The Scrapper Guild was an organization active on the Mid Rim planet Bracca during the reign of the Galactic Empire and into the First Order/Resistance War that scrapped capital ships and other materiel from the Clone Wars.

History[edit | edit source]

The Scrapper Guild was established during the Clone Wars, when the facilities on the planet Bracca were optimized to efficiently dismantle and salvage capital ships, a process known as "scrapping". Scrapping soon became the most profitable industry on Bracca, with the Guild expanding and adapting its enormous scrapyards to handle the disposal of many types of starships and vehicles, as well as the recycling and repurposing of related technology and infrastructure.[2]

During the war, sympathizers from the Guild aided the Confederacy of Independent Systems in an attempt to wrestle the system away from Galactic Republic control. In response to this, the newly formed Galactic Empire cut wages and lowered safety standards within Bracca's scrapyards. Despite these cutbacks, the Guild began an expensive campaign to find favor with the Empire by focusing on eradicating any vehicles, equipment and technology associated with the Galactic Republic. Prauf and former Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis were members of the Guild during the early years of the Empire.[2]

The Guild was still active around the time of the First Order/Resistance War.[1]

Organization[edit | edit source]

"What if I screw up, take a fall? I got a family to worry about."
"A Rigger with a family? Oh friend, you've made some poor life choices."
―Two scrappers[src]

The Guild scrappers were divided between specialization: Cutters, Hazmats, and Riggers.[1] They were supervised by foreman droids, flying around on their hover barges. Being a scrapper was a hard job, when it was not downright dangerous.[2] Hazmat scrappers were at the bottom of the heap, having worked in toxic conditions and relied on dated safety equipment.[3]

Members of the Guild tended to come from low-income communities located all over the galaxy.[3]

The Guild operated a large network of high-speed cargo trains that transported salvaged parts and technology to be shipped off-world. The average shipment passed through 25 security checkpoints before being sent to the Core Worlds for resale.[2]

The guild also had a Guild store that was selling hardhelmets to scrappers for 250 credits.[2]
