Black Sun is the most
powerful and infamous crime syndicate in the galaxy.
A Vigo is a title used by the Black Sun
crime syndicate to denote the organization's leadership. At any given
time, nine of these lieutenants each oversee a different region of the
galaxy and report directly to the organization's head, the Black Sun
The word Vigo means "nephew" in Old
Tionese, which creates the semblance of a familial bond between the
leadership, making them appear stronger and indivisible to outsiders.
Selected from the ranks of Black Sun's
membership, the Vigos only number nine and are independently wealthy and
possess of great influence. Assigned to oversee the organization's
operations in one of nine sectors of the galaxy, the Vigos report
directly to Black Sun's leader, the Underlord; when the Underlord died
or was deposed, one of the sitting Vigos would replace him or her.
