The Power guild was an organization ruled by Trader Barons. During the decline of the Republica Galactica, the Power guild secretly took control of the Great Senate. The secret influence wielded by the guild was discovered by the Jedi, but the mystic knights were accused of treason when they attempted to expose this corruption.
During the civil unrest which followed, a period which led to the Galactic Empire, the cost of power became exorbitantly expensive, lining the pockets of the guild leaders.
Behind the scenesEdit
The plot of the guilds was the basis for the corporate interests leading the Confederacy of Independent Systems in Episode II and Episode III. The name "guild" was revived in the Commerce Guild. A Mining Guild was also mentioned in Episode V.
