The Blood Snakes are a pirate gang based in the Frontier. They are the cannibalistic rivals to the Dune Kings, who they view as encroaching on Snake territory.
Blood Snake culture is primal and savage, even moreso than the Dune Kings. They believe that eating people absorbs their "chakra," making one more in tune with the Frontier and the universe. The Snakes have been described as a twisted cult with no boundaries.
