Scouring the galaxy for wanted criminals are a group of independent law enforcers. Bounty hunters -- well armed and well trained predators looking for those with prices on their heads. While bounty hunters may often work in the shadowy underworld, many are sanctioned law enforcers. This allows them to carry all sorts of weaponry unavailable to the general public. Many hunters work for the Bounty Hunters Guild -- an organization that provides supplies, aid, and the latest warrants for the pickings.
The Confederation officially chartered the organization known as the Bounty Hunters' Guild on July 21st, 2230. On May 30, 2247, the structure known as Fortuna Station became operational. This was the first step in the creation of the Bounty Hunters as an independent government. Almost immediately, membership nearly doubled . The Guild constists of a loose association of soldiers of fortune, hot-shot fighter pilots, wealthy, powerful merchant princes, and outlaws looking for a second chance. "The Bounty Hunter guild was an old organization for Bounty Hunters. It was an organization which seeked bounties and gave them to their members, asking a part of the profit. It provided some services for their members and had rules for their members. This made it safer for the hunters to do their job. They worked in teams and didn't interfere with other hunters and bounties. Cradossk, Bossks' father, has been head of the Guild for quite a long time, he worked his way up in a real scummy way. He killed everybody in his way. His son, Bossk, did the same to him at the decline of the Guild. It had been a powerful organization, but it lacked real talent and courage, it was becoming a to old bureaucratic organization. Boba Fett was the main source of this."-From website Bounty Hunters
