A smuggler, he began his work as an underling to Jorj Car'das, who left the business after a strange event on Dagobah. Karrde and Booster Terrik took over Car'das' operations, though Booster was caught and sent to Kessel, and Karrde took over much of the organization. While on a safari, he encountered Mara Jade and recruited her into his organization as an advisor. She later became his second-in-command. Karrde's organization, in the meanwhile, expanded to become essentially a premiere smuggling group in the galaxy, rivaling Jabba the Hutt's in scope and power, though not in brutality.

Karrde's goal was to stay neutral in the Galactic Civil War, but due to Grand Admiral Thrawn's activities on his planet of operations, Myrkr, he ends up all but siding with the New Republic, thought he continues to adamantly claim his neutrality. The Empire, however, decides that he is a threat, and takes him captive. Luke Skywalker, who had been saved by Karrde when found in a crippled X-wing, works with Mara Jade to rescue him. Karrde, wanting to repay the debt, provides the locations of the Katana fleet, a lost battle group of mechanized warships, to the New Republic.

Karrde, though a smuggler, is a refined and tasteful man, coming up with esoteric collectibles, capable personnel and bizarre details on a regular basis. His business is smuggling, but his hobby and passion is the collection of information; he can infer a great deal from a few facts and comments, much the way Grand Admiral Thrawn is able to decode a culture from its art. During the Thrawn Crisis, Karrde serves (unwillingly) as Thrawn's opposite number, helping to close the divides Thrawn has sown throughout the galaxy and using that conflict's most potent weapon – information – to counter Thrawn as much as possible. To Karrde's chagrin, this often resultes in his aiding the New Republic. He enjoys giving his starships punnish names, such as Wild Karrde, Etherway, Uwana Buyer and Starry Ice.
