"Filth, you will pay for your insolence."
"Insolence! We are pirates! We don't even know what that means."
Darth Maul and Hondo Ohnaka[src]

The term pirate referred to the variety of rogues that were scattered across the Galaxy who would attack, rob or commandeer ships as they saw fit.

While their actions were inherently illegal, the morals of various pirates varied considerably. Some were cutthroat brigands who were petty murderers or thieves, but others, such as Nym, had a set of morals that prohibited killing the innocent, and generally restricted their actions to the rich. Other pirates, referred to as "privateers", operated under the sanction of governments or organizations like the Alliance to Restore the Republic or Galactic Empire. Privateers tended to hold themselves to a more "civilized" standard than other pirates, and restricted their activities to specific targets. Most pirates were orphans or citizens that were unemployed because of either being uneducated or having a lust for adventure, riches or anarchy.
