The green skinned, hairless Orions live a life of hedonism and self-indulgence, and much of it is paid for by crimi-nal activity and black market funding. The females of their race are admired and revered by the males, but live in thraldom, serving only to please clients and business partners alike, and to attract trade and interest from new clients, as a form of sexual diplomacy, drawing them ever closer into the Orion web of exploitation and deceit. The Orions operate a wide circuit of smuggling, of which their influence and bartering prowess is to be admired by some, and feared by many.
The Orion Syndicate is a conglomeration of merchants, smugglers, thieves and intelligence operatives. They oper-ate in the dark shadows of spaceport bars, or in the disguise of reputable merchants at trade symposiums. Their goal is simple: to corner as many markets as possible.
