Ancient Order of the Pessimists
this cult grew quietly on the volcanic world of Maryx Minor. The Order always believed that the worst would happen, regardless of the situation. They were forced to hide Abal Karda, during the fugitive's flight from the Empire. Karda killed at least one of the brothers, Mabob, believing the young man was spying on him when Mabob was simply bringing his meal. He killed another brother during Mabob's funeral, claiming their chants were too loud. The Order was then dismayed to learn that both Boba Fett and Darth Vader were tracking Karda, and they believed that their end was near. However, Fett and Vader fought to a standstill and left the planet, and their struggle only killed four of the Order's brothers. The leader of the Order declared that this was an omen, which meant that they needed to start looking for the worst in every situation. He declared that the order should begin looking toward the brighter side of any situation. Several of the Order's older members declared this a heresy, and they were proved correct. Vader felt that the Order had witnessed too much, and ordered their destruction. Several turbolaser barrages from Vader's Star Destroyer leveled their hermitage and destroyed the Order.
