Starfinder Society

Factions

Adventurers in Starfinder formed factions around adventuring philosophy. Members of the Society choose to join up with one or more of these groups as they complete their Starfinder Society missions.

Exo-Guardians

"The sword that seeks the darkness."

The Exo-Guardians have existed in various forms within the Starfinder Society for the past century. Dedicated to preserving the Pact Worlds from external threats, the Exo-Guardians work closely with the Starfinder Society, using the latter’s farreaching travels and discoveries to identify galactic threats early. While most of the original Exo-Guardians were involved in the mission to the Scoured Stars, a handful remained behind. They have since worked to reform the faction to serve the recovering Society.

Faction Leader: Zigvigix (LG host shirren soldier)

Zigvigix (LG host shirren soldier) When the majority of the Exo-Guardians were lost in the Scoured Stars incident, Zigvigix held the faction together on Absalom Station. Having served in the role as faction leader for several years now, Zigvigix has recently had to come to terms with severe medical issues. They still provide guidance and feedback to agents, but have also been taking a step back from their role as faction leader in preparation for installing a new leader to oversee the faction. Still, many Starfinders eagerly recount their stories of working for “Ziggy” as the faction leader shows an abundance of care and respect for those Starfinders serving under their leadership.

Objectives: The creed of the Exo-Guardians is to protect the Pact Worlds from external threats. In the context of their membership within the Starfinder Society, this most often relates to participating in missions to acquire relics or technology of a defensive nature. Exo-Guardians excel in missions that lead to such discoveries, but also serve an important secondary role within the Society of “sending a message” to threats that interfere in Society business. Be it a derelict starship overrun with mindless alien vermin or a supposedly impenetrable fortress operated by forces opposed to the Society, it’s often the Exo- Guardians who come in to handle the situation.

Season 3 Goal: The Exo-Guardians have started reaching out to the various allies that the Starfinder Society has accrued since the events of the Scoured Stars incident. Faction leader Zigvigix has been suffering from several ailments over the past three years and is finally starting to take a step back, delegating responsibilities as they find a way to transition in a new leader for the faction.
