"Harvest time!"
―Larken gives the command to attack the Kizbon's Box[src]

Larken was a male pirate who owned the starship Pillage. During his career as a pirate he at one stage worked with two other pirate vessels named Trust Me and Profit, the latter of which was piloted by an individual named Druug, in attempted to capture the Helix–class light interceptor, Kizbon's Box, based a on tip from a female named Sahr whom Larken paid for the information. With Sahr as his gunner, Larken and his fellow pirates positioned themselves near the space station, Darknon Station under the cover of a magnetic storm in preparation to ambush their target. When the Box arrived the three ships moved in on the supposedly unarmed target with Larken thirsting to spill some blood. The group were horrified to find their mark had several hidden armaments including proton torpedos, with which it destroyed Trust Me and Profit before it's owner commed Larken and Sahr in the Pillage, addressing them both by name.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Larken first appeared in 1995 the article "A Buyer's Guide to Alternative Starships" which was published in the fifth issue of the Star Wars Adventure Journal series of supplement books for West End Games, Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game. The article was written by Stephen Luminati and included two short stories to illustrate some of the ships mentioned. Larken appeared as the main character in one of these, titled "Kizbon's Box" which gave no information as to what era it was set in.
