Mapes Shaywa was the chief of FiggEx Security and a member of the black-ops squad under FiggEx.


As part of a plot to free themselves from the Mining Guild, FiggEx charged Shaywa with hiring pirates to hit their shipping lanes. Under the alias "Barseth Gynes", he sent an operative to contact Nogo Sistek, who in turn located and bankrolled the pirates Salmakk and Clabburn. Unfortunately, the pirates' activity drew the attention of the Outer Javin Company and the Empire, among others. Shaywa's mission then became to eliminate the pirates, as well as any evidence linking either himself or FiggEx to the operation.

His ultimate fate was unknown, but rumors existed that he was killed in a traffic accident on the planet Gerrenthum shortly after the pirate incident.
