"Jerresk has done a masterful job of keeping his base's location a secret. Likewise, he chooses his targets intelligently. This Quarren's activities have resulted in the loss of nine transport ships, in addition to numerous small craft. Fortunately, none of Jerresk's raids have resulted in fatalities, as the crews are packed into escape pods with distress signals. However, I believe that the pirate would have no qualms about killing should it be "necessary" to achieve his aims."
General Airen Cracken[src]

Jerresk was a pirate who, with Nosstrick, attacked several New Republic supply shipments, earning very large bounties and moving them from the Hundred Club to the list of "Most Wanted".


Jerresk was born on the planet Mon Calamari in 26 BBY. A pirate for renown throughout the Outer Rim Territories, Jerresk operated a small fleet consisting of a Corellian light freighter, two scout vessels, and four Z-95 Headhunters. The Quarren used complex, but reliable tactics; all his ships had a hyperdrive and each was programmed with a pre-calculated hyperspace escape route in case their attacks went badly. Each ship had a different location to jump to, from which a second hyperspace jump was enacted to the true rendezvous point. Using this methods, Jerresk kept his base's location a secret.[1]

Jerresk's last known sighting was in the Fordon system where he and his pirates assaulted a New Republic supply vessel en route to the Musson system. The attack was the fourth in a series of raids by Jerresk targeted at the New Republic. The New Republic offered a reward of 8,000 credits for Jerresk's capture on charges of piracy, theft of New Republic property, and assault and battery.[1]
