"Flight Commander Pirul, my lord. If you possess a ship, I could certainly use your talents."

Pirul was a male Human Flight Commander within the Sith Empire during the Cold War. Faced with increasing number of Republic attacks in space, he mobilized the Kaas 23rd and Dread Wing squadrons to repel the invaders, but their efforts proved insufficient. To combat the threat, he oversaw the formation of an elite attack squadron called Empire's Fury. Pirul personally contacted Sith Apprentice of Darth Baras, Sith Apprentice of Darth Zash, Intelligence Agent Cipher Nine and a bounty hunter participating in the Great Hunt and persuaded them to lend their effort to the Empire's cause.

Behind the scenesEdit

Pirul was created for Star Wars: The Old Republic, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game released by BioWare on December 20, 2011. He contacts Imperial players on board their ship by holocomm, just after they complete their Dromund Kaas storylines and receive their own ship. He recruits the player into the Empire's Fury Squadron, which serves as the plotline for the space missions available to the players.
