"What's going on?"
"The leader of the Sligo Pirate gang is going to race the Twi'lek!"
Anakin Skywalker and Oollie[src]

The Sligo Pirate gang was a swoop gang that resided in the underworld of Coruscant prior to the Clone Wars. At some point after 28 BBY, the leader of the gang challenged a Twi'lek to a swoop race through the tunnel of a power plant. After a few minutes there was an explosion, and the Twi'lek exited the tunnel victorious, with the Sligo Pirate leader limping out. The rest of the gang left aboard their swoop bikes, leaving their former chief.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Sligo Pirate gang first appeared in the young readers novel Anakin: Apprentice, which was written by Marc Cerasini in 2002.[1]
