Topic: Join the Imperial Forces (bio thread)

Congratulations proud Citizens of the Empire! You are now part of the greatest force for peace and order for the entire Galaxy. Glorious Emperor Palpatine has welcomed new star systems across the rim to enjoy the security and prosperity of loyal Imperial subjects. Many of these worlds never recovered fully from the Clone Wars and remain unorganized and rife with disorder and criminal unrest. The Empire reaches out to these struggling worlds to bring about a new era of peace free of conflict and dissent.

Characters are predominantly department heads for the Star Destroyer.
These should include: Captain, XO (ship operations), Commander of Starfighters, General for Ground Assault, First Stormtrooper, Chief of Engineering, Chief of Security/ship defenses/gunnery, Political Officer, Moral Officer/discipline, Intelligence Officer.

That's the initial list off the top of my head. I would encourage folks to make your own sub_officers/NPCs or disposable incidental staff to keep your officers out of harms way.
Of course with a crew of 46,000 there are a few too many NPCS for me to take on as GM or bother to keep track of, so there is a huge amount of latitude to NPCS and your control over them.

The story takes place during the rise of the empire, just prior to A New Hope and of course Rogue One. Roughly the same time period as Rebels. Jedi are almost unheard of, nearly fictional legends of a bygone age. Rebels are getting more organized but have not fully come on the field to meet the Empire in battle. We will encounter them, but there is no massive rebel fleet (maybe). Pirates, smugglers and general scum are our chief opponents. Aliens are very rare on a Star Destroyer outside of the labor pool. If you want to play one we have to work out a logical reason for them to be on the crew.

Certainly being Imperial is a bit more restrictive than a general open Star Wars Universe. We are the good guys. I want people to come up with good reasons why a normal person would serve the Empire. There is a certain twisted element to all of this, but why would good people do bad things and sleep well at night? Or can they? That's what I want to explore.

The basic 3x3 sheet for characters always works well. See below.

The mighty Star Destroyer ISS Dominator patrols this quadrant of the rim, stomping out unrest and criminal elements. This is the story of the Officers and Troopers that risk their own lives serving the greater good of the Galactic Empire. These are their stories...

Character Bio:
Name: Cordelia Yarthang
Born: 28 BBY
Place of birth: Alderaan
Age: 27
Height: 5’8”
Weight: 130
Hair:   Blonde 
Eyes: Blue
Rank: Lieutenant Commander
Status: Single
Current Profession: Political Officer
Aspirations & Goals: Serve the Empire, Retire in luxury
Known Relatives:
Education/Credentials:   Imperial Space Academy, University of Coruscant– Political Science
Languages spoken: Basic,
Religion: None
Quote:
Personality: Very Serious
Personal History: Lt. Commander Yarthang was a child of the beautiful planet of Alderaan, one of the planets most loyal to the Emperor  during the Clone Wars. Being only 10 years old at the time she had but scant recollections of any actual events of the Clone Wars aside from Emperor Palpatine ending the war and disorder brought on by the seperatists. Cordelia was one of the first children brought into the Imperial Pioneers Youth movement that came to idolizes the Emperor.

As the Royal family of Alderaan began to pull back on their patriotic duty in following the Emperor in favor of the dying Republic, Palpatine relocated the Imperial Pioneers to Imperial Center. Cordelia was thrilled to move to the capital city and finish her schooling under the shadow of the Emperor. Her zeal at the youth rallies was exactly what the empire was looking for in their young people. She became the face of the young empire, and her studies and activities at the University of Coruscant were used to inspire young people from across the galaxy to embrace the long arms of their imperial masters.

Despite her Alderaanean beauty and the success and fame she gained as an imperial posterchild, Cordelia was not happy. A remnant of the excesses of the Old Republic, a distinct class system was apparent throughout the Empire. She was not of high birth, and even she could see the 'benefits' of class privilege as the house of Organa shoved their girl child into the forefront of Imperial society. Cordelia disliked the notion of petty jealousy, but the antics of the the Oragana scion got under her skin. Cordelia had dedicated her life to carrying out the benevolent will of the Emperor, but this child Princess of Alderaan, 10 years her inferior, was now poised to ascend to the Imperial Senate on a platform of opposing the Lord Palpatine. It was this arrogance and callous disrespect that brought Cordelia into the Imperial forces. By taking a stand for the Emperor and spreading his peace through the galaxy, even a woman of low birth could enter the society of the elite. Hard work, sacrifice and dogged persistence would lead her to places others like the Organas just were born into.

Driven was a word Cordelia superiors would use for the young recruit as she rapidly moved up in the ranks of the military. She never had to even don the armor of a Stormtrooper before she was tapped for officer training. Somewhere in her heart she knew the Emperor was pulling for her. She had basic combat training, but was very directly moved to positions that ended up on hold recordings throughout the galaxy. The pride and adoration on her face when she was introduced to the legendary Lord Vader was captured on camera and used to recruit thousands of new troopers.

After years of hard work in front of the cameras, Cordelia had earned the rank of Lt. Commander and assigned to the Star Destroyer Dominator. Cordelia was full of ambition knowing she had risen higher in the military than 98% of women in the Imperial navy. Her zeal for the empire was still contagious, and each promotion brought her closer to joining the elite of the galaxy. Soon. Very soon..
