- "You were a spice runner?"
"You were a stormtrooper? We can do this all day."
- ―Finn and Poe Dameron
The Spice Runners of Kijimi were a group of smugglers that existed in the eras before and during the war between the First Order and the Resistance. The Anzellan droidsmith Babu Frik served as a member of the gang. Poe Dameron had joined the Spice Runners when their ship crashed on Yavin 4 during his adolescence. Dameron worked with Vigilch, Gen Tri, Tomasso, Marinda Gan, and Zorii Bliss during his time with the group.
When the group's then leader, Zeva Bliss, planned to kill rival criminals during the Kijimi summit, having invited them under the guise of making alliances, Dameron and EV-6B6 betrayed the Spice Runners. Though Dameron was unable to defeat Bliss and was overpowered, her daughter, Zorii, came to Dameron's aid and helped him fight. Zorii offered that they work together to defeat her mother and take control of the Spice Runners, but Dameron decided he no longer wanted to be a criminal. He instead decided to return home, but Zorii would rise to take control of the Spice Runners. During the First Order and Resistance's conflict, the two reunited during the mission to Kijimi, though she displayed annoyance with his decision to leave the smuggling group.
