As a culture comes to face its own mortality, it asks itself what
comes after death. Most believe in an afterlife that offers paradise
for the just and damnation for the wicked. A few cultures teach that if a
life is ended unjustly, the victim's soul lingers among the living to
exact retribution. Accounts of these spiritual creatures are as varied
as the races that give them, but all agree that these beings are
powerful, unwavering, and deadly. Lurking in the darkness, they bring
death to the wicked and justice to the guilty.
These creatures are Wraiths.
Named for these mythical creatures, The Wraiths are the Galaxy's
elite warriors. Not bound to any fixed home, they roam the Galaxy
seeking the most difficult challenges, fighting for what they believe is
right and defending the defenceless. Their nomadic nature makes them
hard to measure, hard to find, and most of all hard to kill. Wraiths use the finest equipment, wielding it with an expertise that
makes them one with the tools of their trade. Capital ship commanders
are rarely known to leave their ships, and fighter pilots fly their
craft as extensions of their own bodies. The most elite Wraiths command the massive Sabaoth Destroyers and
pilot the nimble Sabaoth Defenders. In the entire Galaxy, these
top-of-the-line craft are available only to those who have proven
themselves worthy of the name Wraith. Planet side, Wraiths lead massive armies of mercenaries and droids to
fight larger enemy concentrations, seeking the most elite enemy
warriors to fight personally. The Wraiths are set apart from other mercenaries because while they
accept payment for their services it is only a means to an end, rather
than an end in itself. A true warrior community, the Wraiths turn their
fees toward maintaining their tools of war, constantly honing their
edge. Wraiths are motivated by a drive to be the best, by the joy of
battle, and by an imperative to stand with honour as the Galaxy's elite.
This esprit de corps is best characterized by their motto: "Fortune
Favours the Bold."
