Serpentis Hideaway is an unrated combat site belonging to the Serpentis Corporation pirate faction. It can be found via exploration as a cosmic anomaly within systems owned by the Gallente Federation or occupied by the Serpentis Corporation. As an ungated complex, the limitations as to which ships can complete this site are tied to the security rating of the system where the anomaly spawns (T2 Battleships for high-security systems, and up to Titans in low-security and null-security systems). Completing this complex may award the player with valuable Shadow Serpentis faction modules and ammunition.
This combat site consists of a single ungated pocket of space containing a variety of Frigate-sized enemy ships. Destroying all hostile ships may escalate into the DED rated Serpentis Narcotic Warehouses complex. Three variations of this combat anomaly exist: Serpentis Hidden Hideaway, Serpentis Forsaken Hideaway and Serpentis Forlorn Hideaway.

|The Serpentis Corporation was founded a few decades ago by V. Salvador Sarpati. At first, it was engaged in hi-tech research, but with time its ties to the underworld grew, and Serpentis research stations scattered around in remote areas became notorious pirate havens. Sarpati made a deal with the Angel Cartel early on to provide protection for his stations, and this duty was eventually taken on by the Guardian Angels. Both sides have prospered enormously from this deal - Serpentis can operate in peace, and the Angel Cartel gets access to the illegal research efforts of the Serpentis conglomerate. It is strongly believed that Serpentis is the main developer and manufacturer of illegal neural boosters, especially since Sarpati's father was a renowned specialist in that field. The home of Serpentis is in the Phoenix constellation in the Fountain region.|

|On warp in:|
|This deadspace complex was built by the Serpentis Corporation to protect and store narcotic and military supplies for their members. The complex also acts as a temporary storage area for the corporation's traffic of illicit substances. While the entrance check-in sectors of the complex are not known to be heavily guarded, certain sections house experienced security staff using top-of-the-line equipment funded by the Serpentis Corporation's income from illegal activity.|
