eXiles began with a group of refugees from the second DynaCorps purge. When Isoldor Storm fired many employees and executed others, many DynaCorps members fled, and decided to band together. Initially they consisted mostly of the former members of StormOne Mining. Quickly regrouping, they signed a contract with Akheton Mining Corporation, exchanging service for aid to set up an independent faction. As more and more people fled the purge at DynaCorps, the eXiles’ numbers swelled, and soon they were joined by most of the former DynaCorps leadership.
Tempted by the Dark side, Nathan Frost and Darren Stone stripped two of the DynaCorps factions when they left and stole some property from Combank. Acting quickly, the rest of the eXiles quickly arrested them with assistance from the New Anzat Order government. Acting on a request by Adliger Uriel, President of Combank, the eXiles agreed to offer the thieves a prison term, rather than execution, in exchange for return of the stolen goods to their rightful owners.
Seizing the opportunity provided by the confusion in the eXiles ranks, Dverol Nact of Akheton reneged on the contract and accused eXiles members of “consorting with pirates.” No explanation of how arresting two thieves, and arranging for the return of Combank’s stolen goods constituted “consorting with pirates” was provided. In the ensuing chaos, several eXiles were killed, and many others simply disappeared. The two thieves, who had been turned over to NAO custody, were eventually executed by that government.
Reeling from the third crisis in as many weeks, the remaining members regrouped and began the difficult task of earning enough funds to form their own faction. Determined to make their own way and remain independent, the group turned down many offers of jobs or investment. However, their numbers grew as many like minded beings joined their efforts; but it was decided that a small, tight-knit group would be best, and some otherwise promising applicants were turned away.
Reaching an accord with Isoldor Storm, the group engaged in a large construction project in the Roche Asteroids, funded in part by a grateful Combank. Using proceeds from the Roche Project’s sales, Exiles acquired Csilla Excavations on Year 7, Day 51 and moved operations to the little explored, isolated regions of the Elrood sector and established business relations with the Sorosuub government in the neighboring Sluis sector.
Ironically, Csilla had been formed just over a year earlier by Pixelor Xess, on Year 6, Day 44, from the two sputtering companies of StormOne Mining Corporation and StormOne Recycling. Under Xess, Csilla was affiliated with the Iktochian Guard.
Over the next year, eXiles expanded Csilla's operations throughout the southeast of Elrood sector. Shortly after establishing their headquarters at Derilyn, the sector became the center of a raging war. With the Galactic Empire and Kathol Republic on one side, and Sorosuub and the Rebel Alliance on the other, most smaller companies fled the region. Csilla hung on though, and managed to mostly escape the ravages of the war. System after system though fell to the opposing governments, leaving little room for further expansion.
eXiles then looked to the Mayagil sector, left unclaimed after the Association of Mayagil Sovereignty collapsed when their ally, the Invisible Army, was brought down by the GE and the Twelve Colonies (formerly DynaCorps). The Twelve Colonies quickly moved into the void there though before ceding the sector to the GE. The Elrood War suddenly shifted when the GE turned on their erstwhile ally, the Kathol Republic, and Sorosuub moved on Mayagil in force.
Seeking calmer environs, eXiles began developing new operations in the Rimma Trade Remnants Sector, coreward from Elrood and Mayagil. Although numerous other groups had small claims or interests in the region, and the GE claimed the sector (despite having no presence there), eXiles managed to quickly establish dominance throughout the sector.
Zimbabwe Suluclac, one of the founding members of eXiles and an original Board of Directors member, retired during year 7. Leadership of Csilla during this period rotated between the three Board members: Jeb`el Ras, Kain Elderan, and Tukaram. At some point during this period, Saxon Vui and her cohorts stripped Akheton mining and Dverol Nact was assassinated by Black Sun bounty hunter Lamy Homo, and normal relations were restored with Hapes.
On Year 8 Day 9, eXiles opened GalMart, the Galaxy's first galactic-wide retail store at Rattattak, in Rimma.. Offering the widest selection of droids, weapons, items and vehicles available anywhere, eXiles sought to establish Gal Mart as a dominant figure in galactic trading. GalMart's headquarters were shifted to Vandelhelm, where Csilla were developing extensive mining operations.
Early in year 8, the company was then reorganised into three departments: GalMart, Elrood/Mayagil Operations, and the Rimma Mining Division, with a member of the Board leading each department. Due to philosophical differences with Adam A. Flynn, who advocated blackmail, murder, and other borderline criminal activities as well as a hostile internal takeover of the Rebel Alliance, eXiles severed relations with Sorosuub. Sorosuub merged with the Rebel Alliance shortly after, with the resulting organisation assuming the name New Republic, and Flynn's ultimate betrayal and raping of the New Republic is well known to the galaxy.
