- "Filth, you will pay for your insolence."
"Insolence! We are pirates! We don't even know what that means."
- ―Darth Maul and Hondo Ohnaka
Pirates were individuals who engaged in the criminal activity known as piracy. Such acts included hostage taking, and theft of cargo. Notable pirates include Hondo Ohnaka who had dealings with the highest levels of leadership of both the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars, and those led by Q'anah, who were thwarted by Wilhuff Tarkin during his tenure with the Outland Regions Security Force of Eriadu. Pirates were sometimes associated with bounty hunters.
