"You have heard of our plight with the smugglers here on Talus?"
Kiki Dorente, to a spacer[src]

The Talusian Smugglers were a band of smugglers that operated on Talus during the Galactic Civil War.

History[edit | edit source]

"There is a den of Selonians just outside Nashal that are being exploited by a group of smugglers. It appears the smugglers have some of the den's people, and are using them to coerce the rest of the den into mining for them."
Agent Taarna, to a spacer[src]

The Talusian Smugglers were active on Talus, in the Corellian system during the Galactic Civil War. They had a base located near the city of Nashal.[1]

The Smuggler Base.

After the Battle of Yavin, the smugglers turned their activities to piracy. They made an arrangement with a traitorous member of the Neetha Den, a Selonians den who lived in a cave near the smuggler base. The traitor proposed the so-called Askura deal to the Neetha den mother and the other Selonians as a partnership with the smugglers. However, the deal was fake and the Selonians were soon exploited by the smugglers. The smugglers captured several Selonians and kept them as hostages in order to force the rest of the den into mining for them.[3] In fact, the captive Selonians were shipped to Ord Mantell and sold as slaves. Nevertheless, not all the smugglers agreed with that and some considered they could make a fine profit without having to exploit the Selonians.[4]

Circa 1 ABY,[5] the Corellian Security Force was aware of the situation but the smugglers used the fact that the CorSec could not intervene in Selonians matters. However, Agent Taarna then recruited an independent spacer in order to help the Selonians without involving the CorSec.[6] The spacer later worked with Tika Sileste,[7] Ravi Thienta,[2] Lika Fimente[4] and Kiki Dorente, the advisor to the Neetha den mother, to develop a strategy against the smugglers.[1] The spacer then attacked the base and killed many smugglers, including their leader. The spacer also destroyed the smugglers' droids,[7] and the weapon caches, and retrieved stolen Selonian supplies of food, hides and electronic parts.[2] Although the spacer eventually discovered that the captive Selonians had already been sold as slaves,[4] the assault severely weakened the smugglers and crippled their ability to exploit the Selonians.[2][3][7]
