“Dark Hunter Analysis, 07.202.07

Scans of the “Dark Hunter” have been revealed she grows stronger as she consumes Phazon. Already a class Platinum-AAA threat level, we shudder to think of her power level if she consumes our entire Phazon supply.”

Dark Samus’s threat level was worrisome to the Space Pirates.

Space Pirate Logs: Security Breach

Logbook entry

“The Dark Hunter teleports into the base at will. Our security has proven next to useless against her. Her latest raid was disastrous. Not only did we lose more Phazon to her, but she also crippled the stealth field generator with her strange new weapons.”

Dark Samus easily dealt significant setbacks to the Space Pirates’ operations on Aether.

Space Pirate Logs: Two Hunters

Logbook entry

“One of our scouts in Dark Aether saw a curious encounter. The Dark Hunter attacked the one clad as Samus near a Phazon site. Perhaps they are not allies...but foes. Perhaps we can forge an alliance with the Dark Hunter - an exchange, Phazon for the head of our common enemy.”

The Seed was sent into the void, and quickly made its way to our Homeworld. Our brethren foolishly tried to repel it, but their efforts were in vain. To think, once we were as pathetic as them!

Now the deed is done, and slowly, our Homeworld becomes like Phaaze. Soon, there will be two living planets, two Phazon sources for our great leader to use as she sees fit. Soon, there will be thousands of new disciples for her to command.”

Phazon, and by extension Dark Samus, controls the Space Pirates.

SkyTown Data: Defeat

Logbook entry

“Like the Aurora Unit, we too were infected with a Phazon-based virus. The spreading corruption consumed many of us, putting us under Space Pirate control. It was not long before only a handful of us remained.

During this time there was but a moment that we received aid. Ghor, the Hunter dispatched by the Federation, arrived there to restore the Aurora Unit. Our hope quickly vanished as he too was corrupted by Phazon and lost his own will.”

I applaud your effort. It's nice to see more "obscure" characters get some attention.
