The earliest accounts described the Exiles as proficient pathfinders and infiltrators. One of the first accounts was written by an RS captain, who traded some of his supplies and the repair of a broken quantum drive in exchange for the location of a valuable mineral deposit in a nearby asteroid field. The report details a small but hardened band of explorers and mercenaries, bartering for repairs and medical aid before making a jump into deep space.
The next report took place in , over a century later when the captain of a UEE patrol vessel in pursuit of a slaver syndicate in Banshee observed the destruction of local force at the hands of an unknown militia force. The recording of the engagement remains one of the only extant recordings of what is generally accepted by academics and UEE Intelligence of the Exiles in combat. During the following centuries, the myths and legend attributing to Exiles began to slowly permeate Fringe culture.
Stories of rescues, aid to travelers, and protection for vulnerable colonies were as common as stories of banditry and theft. Indeed, many corrupt government officials, violent oligarchs, and budding dictators vanished along with their fleets in volumes of space the Exiles have been speculated to inhabit. While some local warlords may simply have gone into hiding, or the tides of power shifted for other reasons, more often than not the local population would point to the Exiles as the cause.
The Last Exile
Despite the myth of a Robin Hood-like band of criminals, there is considerable debate around the activities of Exiles, and opinions vary widely. Many regard them as a hoax or conspiracy theory, with some even arguing they are little more than a band of insurance fraudsters cashing in on the myths surrounding the secretive group. Even mainstream scholars concede however that there is considerable, if circumstantial, evidence that at least some of the disappearances and shifts of power along the Fringe can indeed be linked to a group that fits the reputation and tactics associated with the Exiles.
Adding to the debate is that many of these incidents tend to occur along a wide area of the Fringe, suggesting that the Exiles are either highly mobile with far-ranging, if unknown, interests; or that some of the activities attributed to them have different causes. Indeed some scholars theorise that the Exiles are not one group but several distinct groups whose actions have been attributed to one cohesive entity. That said, strong evidence for attacks as far into the interior as Stanton carry significant weight amongst many scholars and those who believe the Exiles legends.
While the full scope of activities attributed to the Exiles has probably been exaggerated, some evidence does indicate a mobile and stealthy force capable of rapidly deploying anywhere in human space. The authenticity of the recording remains hotly disputed, however, with many decrying it as as yet another hoax.
