Is the Black Sun just Falleen or what?
I'm reading Scoundrels, by Timothy Zahn, and it's a fun read so far. But at one point a character sees a Falleen and immediately goes "OMG Black Sun!"
The other characters discuss this, "Black Sun has more than just Falleen, it doesn't necessarily mean that he's Black Sun", but they all figure it's a reasonable assumption that a Falleen must be a member of Black Sun.
This happened in The Clone Wars as well, when Darth Maul was organizing various underworld groups together. The Black Sun were represented by a group of identically dressed Falleen. At the time I figured this was mainly to distinguish visually (and to limit the number of new models to design and animate), in a storyline with lots of new characters and groups.
It's been a while since I read Shadows of the Empire, but in that novel I got the impression that Prince Xizor was a Falleen, but that he just happened to be that race, and the rest of Black Sun was a huge organization with a lot of different races involved.
Did it mention in that novel that just because Xizor was Falleen, that many members of the organization were as well? Did he bring his family with him?
Personally I like it better if Xizor is a little more unique, not necessarily surrounded by other members of his race. If it should ever come up in my game that's how I'd play it.
Just wanted to see what others thought.
