With the advent of clone soldiers, a new breed of pirate has arisen to take advantage of their existence. CONCORD, which had been content to leave the pirates be so long as they remained within their own territories, sees the presence of pirate-affiliated clone soldiers as a major threat to the safety of the cluster, and will go to extraordinary means to disrupt their operations.
This Blood Raider pirate is a trainer, in charge of funds, equipment and locales used in the preparation and deployment of clone soldiers loyal to the faction. For the Blood Raiders this mainly involves keeping up a steady supply of nourishing blood of the absolute highest quality, preferably tapped from capsuleers. Or children.
