当协约世界之间的行星贸易逐渐繁荣之际,将其视作肥美猎物的海盗也随之而生,而贝丝玛拉则与他们同在。海盗女王曾经只是一位在格拉里昂上受到崇敬的次等海神,而当下,她成为了司掌海盗,冲突,以及游弋在虚空中异星巨兽的强大女神,并因此广受崇拜。她的一些神职人员宣称贝丝玛拉乃是凭借着某次大胆的突袭废黜了另一名神祇,并因此获得了如今的力量与地位。但由于这次壮举表面上似乎是发生在大散断(Gap)期间,因此其真实性无从考究。贝丝玛拉的海盗船:煞星号 在位面诸界和寰宇太空之中乘风破浪,而其上满载着忠诚的海盗和宇航员,这些来自大千世界的水手既无畏又狡黠。协约世界的天穹之上有一个与煞星号同名的星座,而许多人相信其实那个恰恰正是海盗女王的座驾。

贝丝玛拉傲慢不羁,性情易变,欲壑难填,却又精力充沛。她有着属于自己的荣誉信条,且不会背叛自己的船员和盟友——前提是后者仍对海盗女王有所用处,且愿意为其利益所服务。贝丝玛拉蔑视法律与文明,向往星际之间自由与财富,并因战斗,掠劫,冒险和刺激的追逐而喜悦。海盗女王从来没把自己当成善类或者恶徒,但她唾弃无所裨益的行径,比如毫无意义的杀戮等等。贝丝玛拉陶醉于冲突和欺骗,并深信从别人那里把自己想要的东西抢过来是理所应当的事情。

许多维斯克蜥蜴人佣兵因为其作为冲突女神的一面而信仰贝丝玛拉,但诸如海盗,走私犯,发战争财的家伙以及其他自冲突战斗中牟利的罪犯占据了海盗女王信徒的绝大部分。即使是那些通常对宗教敬而远之的海盗,也可能会向贝丝玛拉祈祷以求能避开她的怒火,又或者会把掠夺到的部分财宝当作对海盗女王供奉投放到太空当中,祈求藉此能讨好这位女神以便换取她的垂青。因此这些贝丝玛拉的信徒比起其他宗教的信众要更为迷信。虽然,海盗女王几乎没有什么神殿,甚至连成型的教会组织也很少见。但是在经常被海盗光顾的空港和太空站里通常都有着贝丝玛拉的小型神龛,而在偏远的小行星,太空废船以及星船墓园之中也能找到类似的祭坛。

大部分自由船长(Free Captains,见书476页)的成员都至少会在口头上效忠于贝丝玛拉,而他们中的许多人都会时时刻刻地随身携带着某个贵重的小玩意(比如说一块稀有的矿物,或者一支从某个地位显赫的星舰船长处偷回来的古董激光手枪等等),一旦丢失就会认为是坏兆头的表现。而其中某些小东西甚至已经在自由船长之间代代相传了数十载。
劇透 -  原文:
When trade blossomed between the planets of the Pact Worlds, the pirates that preyed on that commerce followed, bringing Besmara with them. Once a minor nautical deity revered on Golarion, Besmara is now venerated as a powerful goddess of pirates, conflict, and the alien leviathans that swim through the void. Some of her priests claim that Besmara took her current power and position as her prize when she deposed another deity in a daring raid, but as these events ostensibly took place during the Gap, they remain impossible to confirm. Besmara’s ship, the Starwraith, sails through space and across the planes. Loyally crewed by sly and fearless pirates and spacers from countless worlds, the Starwraith shares a name with a constellation in the skies of the Pact Worlds, and many believe the two are actually one and the same.

Besmara is brash, fickle, greedy, and lusty, but she follows her own code of honor and is loyal to her crew and allies as long as they remain useful and serve her interests. She scorns laws and civilization for the freedom and fortune of outer space, delighting only in battle, plunder, risk, and the thrill of the chase. Besmara does not concern herself with good or evil, but she disdains acts like senseless murder that bring no profit or reward. She revels in strife and trickery, and she believes that if she wants a thing someone else owns, it’s only fair for her to take it.

Many vesk mercenaries worship Besmara in her role as the goddess of strife, but pirates, smugglers, war profiteers, and other criminals who profit from conflict make up the bulk of Besmara’s followers. Even those pirates who normally eschew religion might still pray to Besmara to ward away her wrath, or they might toss a share of plunder out the airlock as tribute to the Pirate Queen to curry her favor. Such folk tend to be more superstitious than religious, however, so Besmara has few temples and little in the way of an organized church. Nevertheless, ports and space stations visited regularly by pirates often host small shrines to the goddess; similar altars can also be found on remote asteroids, on space hulks, and in starship graveyards.

Most of the Free Captains (see page 476) pay at least lip service to Besmara, and many of them carry a small, valuable trinket (such as a chunk of rare mineral or an antique laser pistol stolen from an important starship captain) with them at all times, considering it bad luck to ever misplace the item. Some of these baubles have been passed down from Free Captain to Free Captain over the decades.
