The Higher Skies Advocacy Group was a lobbying group that advocated the interests of the people of Coruscant, such as addressing inadequate housing arrangements, to the government of the Galactic Empire. The head of Higher Skies was Driller MarDapp. During the Imperial Era, MarDapp recruited Arihnda Pryce, a native of the planet Lothal, into the organization. With Pryce's help, the Imperial Security Bureau learned that Higher Skies was involved with Nightswan's spy ring—an organization that used espionage to monitor members of the Imperial Senate.


The Higher Skies Advocacy Group was a Coruscanti special interest group led by Driller MarDapp during the era of the Galactic Empire. In public, Higher Skies was known for advocating the interests of Coruscant's population, such as inadequate housing arrangements, to the Imperial government. Unknown to the Empire at the time, the group's leader was affiliated with a spy ring that monitored the Imperial Senate on behalf of an insurgent known as Nightswan. Utilizing a thief program hidden inside its brochure data cards, Higher Skies was able to obtain information on multiple senators. It also worked with the Yinchom Dojo to turn government bodyguards into spies.[1]

At some point, MarDapp hired Arihnda Pryce in the hopes of using her to the ring's advantage. As an employee, however, the Lothal native discovered Higher Skies and Yinchom Dojo's connection to Nightswan. She used this information to gain influence in the Empire by reporting the groups' activities to the Imperial Security Bureau, resulting in multiple arrests and the start of Pryce's rise to power.[1]
