The Corsairs are one of the largest criminal faction in the Sirius Sector. Being a faction stretched out for a living, they are known for attacks and raids on various transports and bases, as well as the trading of Artifacts.
The ancestors of the Corsairs that had set adrift from the crippled Hispania made planetfall on Crete shortly after the other Houses arrived in the Sirius Sector. Scratching out a living, the Corsairs managed a bleak existence for four centuries. Eventually they developed a strong self-identity, isolated from the rest of the Houses. In 450 AS, that insular world changed. An exploratory expedition headed by Franz Schulman -- financed by Daumann and the Rheinland government -- stumbled into the system while mapping the far reaches of the Walker Nebula. The local inhabitants, sensing a historic opportunity, attacked the landing party en mass, killing all save Schulman, whom they took hostage to gain control of the mother ship Schiller in orbit above the planet.
