The '''Zann Consortium''' was an [[underworld]] organization led by [[Tyber Zann]] to sabotage and interfere with [[Alliance to Restore the Republic|Rebel]] and [[Galactic Empire|Imperial]] affairs during the [[Galactic Civil War]], as well as to accumulate wealth and power. During the course of the war, it amassed considerable power, even becoming a threat to the Empire.

The '''Zann Consortium''' was an [[underworld]] organization and crime syndicate led by [[Tyber Zann]] which sabotaged and interfered with [[Alliance to Restore the Republic|Rebel]] and [[Galactic Empire|Imperial]] affairs during the [[Galactic Civil War]].

The Consortium would become even more powerful after the [[Battle of Endor]] due to Tyber Zann's discovery of [[Palpatine]]'s hidden vaults and the elimination of its main rivals: [[Jabba the Hutt|Jabba]] and [[Prince]] [[Xizor]].

The Zann Consortium was formed sometime between [[19 BBY]] and [[1 BBY]]. Led by crimelord [[Tyber Zann]], the movement spread corruption throughout the Galaxy. Zann worked closely with affiliate [[Jabba Desilijic Tiure|Jabba]] the [[Hutt]] and learned much from the corpulent gangster. Zann then stole a valuable [[Sith holocron]] from Jabba, but was arrested by Imperial forces on [[Felucia]] and sent to [[Kessel]]. Moments before his arrest, Zann entrusted the holocron to his trusted partner, [[Urai Fen]], who evaded capture and escaped the planet with the artifact.

Concerned for the survival of the Consortium, Urai Fen contacted allies of the Consortium on [[Kamino]]. They were willing to harbor the remnants of the organization, so Fen moved Consortium forces from [[Ryloth]] to Kamino. He led the Consortium to victory over the Imperial forces on Kamino, the only remaining obstacle to the group's use of the planet, and laid low until Tyber Zann was ready.

===Accumulation of power===
As Tyber rummaged through the remains of the [[Death Star I|first Death Star]] in orbit around [[Yavin Prime]], he discovered plans for the [[Eclipse-class Star Destroyer|''Eclipse''-class Star Destroyer]], under construction in the [[Kuat Drive Yards]]. The ship, Zann hoped, would prove his power to the Galaxy.

Eventually, after the [[Battle of Endor]] and after spreading the Consortium's influence across the galaxy, Tyber managed to steal the ''Eclipse'', though he did not keep it, instead downloading information from the ship's mainframe. After his theft, Tyber decided to abandon the ''Eclipse'' as it would be a target even the Rebels could not ignore. It is not clear whether he just abandoned the ship or simply sold it back to the Imperials for a huge sum of money, the former being the more likely prospect.

The Consortium was also intent on discovering the mysteries of [[Carbonite Sith Army holocron|an ancient Sith holocron]], stolen from Jabba while he was making a deal with Prince Xizor on Felucia.

Tyber Zann[src]

The Zann Consortium was an underworld organization and crime syndicate led by Tyber Zann which sabotaged and interfered with Rebel and Imperial affairs during the Galactic Civil War. During the course of the war, it amassed considerable power and wealth, even becoming a threat to the Empire.

The Consortium would become even more powerful after the Battle of Endor due to Tyber Zann's discovery of Palpatine's hidden vaults and the elimination of its main rivals: Jabba and Prince Xizor.

History

Formation and dissolution

FoC cover

Tyber Zann, leader of the Zann Consortium.

The Zann Consortium was formed sometime between 19 BBY and 1 BBY. Led by crimelord Tyber Zann, the movement spread corruption throughout the Galaxy. Zann worked closely with affiliate Jabba the Hutt and learned much from the corpulent gangster. Zann then stole a valuable Sith holocron from Jabba, but was arrested by Imperial forces on Felucia and sent to Kessel. Moments before his arrest, Zann entrusted the holocron to his partner, Urai Fen. He evaded capture and escaped the planet with the artifact.

Concerned for the survival of the Consortium, Urai Fen contacted allies of the Consortium on Kamino. Kamino then served as a base for a very limited time, but the Kaminoans, with very few resources, could not contribute much. The Consortium then decided to relocate to Ryloth so Fen moved Consortium forces from Kamino to Ryloth. He led the Consortium to victory over the Imperial forces on Ryloth, the only remaining obstacle to the group's use of the planet, and laid low until Tyber Zann was ready.

Escape from Kessel and reformation

Zann continued to rot in the prisons of Kessel until Jabba the Hutt, pleased at Zann's capture, inadvertently set him free with a message delivered by an MSE-6 droid. From there, Zann contacted Urai Fen (currently in orbit around the planet), who managed to land on the planet with help from Han Solo and Chewbacca in the Millennium Falcon.

A bounty hunter sent by Jabba the Hutt caught up with an unarmed Zann as he left his cell, only to be killed by Fen. Tyber and Urai managed to bribe and fight through the security checkpoints and past stormtroopers, breaking other prisoners free as a distraction to aid them in his escape. The pair finally made their rendezvous with an impatient Solo, and Zann left the prisoners and made his exit in the Millennium Falcon. After his departure from Kessel, Tyber Zann began his campaign to restore the Consortium to power in the Galaxy.

Accumulation of power

Corrupted galaxy

Tyber Zann views the corruption efforts over the Galaxy.

As Tyber rummaged through the remains of the first Death Star in orbit around Yavin Prime, he discovered plans for the Eclipse-class Super Star Destroyer, under construction in the Kuat Drive Yards. The ship, Zann hoped, would prove his power to the Galaxy.

As he searched for a dark-side Force user to discover the elusive nature of the Sith holocron he had stolen from Jabba the Hutt, Tyber finally made a deal with the rival crimelord inside an old CIS battle droid factory on Hypori and gained a powerful new addition to his arsenal, the Droideka Mark II.

Zann also was partially responsible for the downfall of Black Sun leader Prince Xizor, framing him for stealing tibanna gas from Bespin, despite the arrival of Imperial reinforcements, including Darth Vader.

Eventually, after the Battle of Endor and after spreading the Consortium's influence across the Galaxy, Tyber managed to capture the Eclipse, though he did not keep it, instead stealing billions of credits from Emperor Palpatine's personal vault network. After his theft, Tyber decided to abandon the Eclipse as it would be a "target even the Rebels could not ignore." It is presumable that he simply abandoned the ship for the Imperials to retake.

The Consortium was also intent on discovering the mysteries of an ancient Sith holocron, stolen from Jabba while he was making a deal with the Galactic Empire on Felucia. Silri, a Nightsister in Zann's employ, stole the holocron during the theft on Coruscant before they could decipher it, however, and unlocked its secrets. The artifact led her to an ancient Sith tomb, with thousands of Sith soldiers frozen in carbonite.

Missions

Zann gang

Several important members of the Consortium from left to right; Urai Fen, Tyber Zann, Cuddles, Silri, and IG-88.

Only one mission before the theft of Jabba's artifact and the dissolution of the Consortium is known, but known missions from that point onwards include:

It is highly possible that they participated in many other criminal activities (e.g. kidnapping Garnak Fey) to spread their influence.

Tactics

Consortium forces above Kuat.

The Zann Consortium used its extensive crime network to influence the warring factions during the Galactic Civil War, siphon their credits, and sabotage their operations when necessary. It dealed in mutliple illegal operations, such as establishing widespread racketeering jobs on many worlds; bribery, piracy, and corrupting local militia on planets, as well as intimidating individuals who defied the Consortium.

With access to the black market, Zann had several unique technologies at his disposal, including buzz droids and stealth generators that allowed undetected movement across the Galaxy.

The Zann Consortium also hired bounty hunters such as Bossk and IG-88 to eliminate certain targets in order to further their influence.
