Dryden Vos travels the galaxy in a ship as refined as he is – an elegant Kalevalan yacht with a night-black finish known as the First Light. The yacht boasts elegant staterooms and six main viewing decks, with Vos’s private study at the apex. While moored on Vandor, the First Light is the site of lavish parties – and tense meetings with the Crimson Dawn kingpin.
Coaxium is a rare form of hypermatter that is essential for faster-than-light travel. Starships’ hyperdrive reaction chambers are coated with a thin layer of coaxium, which is energized to allow passage into hyperspace. Unrefined coaxium is mined on worlds such as Kessel, but is dangerous to transport. Highly volatile, it explodes if jostled or allowed to get too hot.

The cultured gangster Dryden Vos is the organization’s most visible representative, but underworld figures have begun to take notice of Vos’s capable lieutenant and protégé, Qi’ra.
