Adelai Niska's Skyplex
Toward the end of the Unification War, the planetary governor on Ezra died unexpectedly, throwing the planet into chaos and a virtual civil war as various factions tried to fill the power vacuum. Confusing the situation further, hordes of refugees and former soldiers from both sides flooded the small central towns. Jobs grew scarce, unemployment rose and the economy was destroyed. Crime rose and criminal organizations rose to power when the local law officials failed to keep it in check. One crimelord in particular, Adelei Niska, moved his skyplex into Ezra’s orbit and assumed control.
Using bribes, extortion and threats, he maintains his power base, somewhat covered by legitimate business organizations. As of yet, the Alliance hasn’t been able to conclude what to do with the situation, as they’d need someone to deal with Niska; thus far, no one has been willing to take on the task.
