Xya Howie was the charismatic ruler of the infamous Black Sun organization circa Year 5. Prior to serving as ruler of Black Sun, Xya was a well-known faction member of both the Galactic Empire and Hammer Slammers.
She is presumed to have died circa Year 6.
Xya Howie followed Tara Tylger to the Black Sun organization several months after Tara had become the Black Sun bodyguard. Both individuals were greatly hated by the Galactic Empire for various reasons. When the Black Sun decision to accepted Howie as a member became public, the Empire objected and decided to declare war upon Black Sun. Neither faction ultimately won the war but rather cooler heads prevailed with war being downgraded to mutual dislike and animosity.
Circa Year 5, Prince Plojo Rosom — the ruler of Black Sun — decided to retire and handed the reins to newcomer Xya Howie. Princess Xya Howie ruled Black Sun for eight months before retiring. But in that time she had grown Black Sun to self-sufficiency, not only in gaining even more members but also by seizing control of many factions. She led the Family through many dangers and was beloved by all members. Prince Joseph Roscha, her loyal Regent, took her place once she stepped down. Roscha ruled for just over three months and was ultimately expelled from Black Sun when Howie returned and reclaimed the throne as leader. Xya Howie then ruled Black Sun until her untimely death, the details of which are still unclear. Tara Tylger, her good friend and regent, took Xya's place as Princess of Black Sun.
