Members of a rare, seemingly nomadic species who arrived on Earth shortly after the enforcement of the quarantine order. Their primary interest is in the acquisition of cultural items, biological specimens and human paraphernalia for the purpose of trade. The custom of bargaining brings them great pleasure, which Satan has used to develop a close, though discrete, relationship with them.

Physiologically, Smugglers possess a cephalopodic ability to alter their shape and colour at will, as well as regenerate damaged limbs and organs. A specially adapted internal organ grants them the ability to generate significant amounts of electrical charge for defensive purposes. The true extent of their technological capability is unknown, though for five hundred years Smugglers have evaded Sirusian detection and interception measures, including Hornet ships and advanced drones, with little apparent difficulty.
