Shistavanen smuggler and scout, he is an “independent” smuggler who runs an operation out of Socorro. He is rumored to be a member of the Black Bha’lir, a smuggler guild based out of Socorro. Mal Biron was in financial trouble not long ago and obtained financial backing from an unknown source. That remains a mystery to all but the most closest to Biron.
Biron was a former Galactic Republic scout who was forced from his job with the rise of the Galactic Empire and their Humanocentrism policies. He subsequently joined Black Sun as a smuggler and represented Sprax as an unofficial Uvena system representative.
His skills as a pilot and smuggler were high, having polished them during several perilous jobs during a series of Hutt gang wars on Nar Shaddaa. In 3 ABY he organized a dangerous race near the Novolek Beacon to evaluate the skills of several potential employees for Sprax.
Mal traveled the galaxy in a modified CEC Barloz-class freighter called Eyeshine.
