The Zann Consortium was an underworld consortium and crime syndicate led by Tyber Zann which sabotaged and interfered with Allied and Axis affairs (namely the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance, later the New Republic) during the First War. During the course of the war, it amassed considerable power and wealth, eventually becoming a major nuisance—and even threat—to both the Empire and the Rebellion (later New Republic). The Zann Consortium joined the Coalition of Independent States. The Consortium would become more powerful after the Battle of Endor due to Tyber Zann's discovery of Palpatine's hidden vaults and the elimination of its main rivals: Jabba the Hutt and Prince Xizor. The Zann Consortium gained most of its technology through its affiliation with the black market, and its Defilers, which were known for travelling to hostile systems and setting up illegal outposts which promoted piracy and sabotage. The two leaders of this crime consortium (group) were the human Tyber Zann and the Talortai Urai Fen.
