Kingfishers

Originally the most loyal slaves to a draconic empire, the Kingfishers were given autonomy to travel the Emerald Sea freely in return for a tithe of riches and fresh slaves each month from neighboring lands. The tyranny of green dragons which blighted their capital city offered the crew of each ship a chance at freedom on one condition, they bring a sacrifice of suitably noble blood to serve as a slave in their stead. Their desperation in many cases lead to their success in this endeavor, and these ragged pirates were soon dubbed the Kingfishers by those who lived in fear of them.

Many of the original Kingfisher crews are now free, but the majority have been so hardened by their life of slavery that they still willingly sell the survivors of their raids to the empire that originally birthed them.
