"Bid of eight hundred fifty million, to the Smugglers Guild!"
―Zygerrian auctioneer[src]

The Smugglers Guild was a short-lived criminal organization in the Cularin system.[1]

In 32 BBY, members of The Cell under the orders of (probably) Ari Melast began a scheme to assassinate crime lord Nirama, replace him and reinstate slavery in the system. They began using the name "Smugglers Guild" before having actually killed Nirama or his top men.[1]

The murder plot failed, the guilty parts were quickly identified and taken care of, and Nirama kept the power on the system.[1]

During the Clone Wars, the Smugglers Guild had apparently reformed or reorganized. Still involved with slavery, representatives of the Smugglers Guild placed a bid for the people of Kiros at the Royal Slave Auction on Zygerria. Their eight and a half million credit bid was the high bid until the auction was disrupted by the Jedi, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Ahsoka Tano.[2]
