Offworld Mining Company
this mining operation controlled much of the ore and mineral extraction performed in the Outer Rim Territories, some twelve years prior to the Battle of Naboo. The employees of Offworld wore a triangular black patch emblazoned with a red planet encircled by a silver starship. The planet and starship combined to give the impression of a blood-red eye. Offworld Mining was one of the oldest and richest companies in the galaxy, and it was not afraid to eliminate its competition at all costs. Leadership of Offworld was often mysterious, although Hutts were often used as operational managers while Whiphids were hired as bodyguards and enforcers. The actual mining was performed by slave labor acquired from all over the Outer Rim. Offworld's hold on the planet Bandomeer was broken after Xanatos infiltrated its leadership structure and took control after the death of Jemba the Hutt. It was part of a plan Xanatos had created to exact revenge on his former teacher, Qui-Gon Jinn, but the plan failed and control of Bandomeer was turned over to the Home Planet Party and Arcona Mineral Harvest Corporation.
