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..

"I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow you head clean off, you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?" -Harry Callahan

Rank: Brigadier

Current Profession: Imperial Stormtrooper Corps Brigadier General
Aspirations & Goals: Become Moff, see the empire into a bright future. Also retire, to a massive estate.

Education/Credentials: Imperial Academy Yinchorr, 91st Reconnaissance Legion
Languages spoken: Basic, Mando’a
Religion: N/A
Quote: I am a produce of years of warfare and martial superiority. Of course I am the best
Personality: Gung Ho Lead by example commander, drinks and associates with the men. Mood is not positively affected by being stuck behind a desk.
Personal History: Most people’s assumption of Roseva is that due to her gender she must be the recipient of some Nepotism or favoritism to climb to her position. However as far as she knows, it was a position earned in the blood of the Emperor’s enemies.
Roseva experienced the Clone Wars through her father and brothers, former Cuy’val’dar and Deathwatch members, Roseva had no love for the hated jedi traitors or the peaceful Mandalorians. Learning her combat trade and leadership skills, early as was supposedly intended for her. However it was her clans betrayal of the Mandalorians to the empire that cemented her support.
At 18 she enlisted in the stormtrooper corps. Passing a brutal training regimen and indoctrination. From there she was sent off world, to pacify and fight in the Emperor's name across the stars. Rooting out the last of the federation resistance and. The last of the Jedi traitors.

Eventually she was given the opportunity to attend the Imperial Academy on Yinchorr, facing brutal training designed to make Riot Troopers and imperial guardsmen out of soldiers. After finishing training she was assigned to the 327th Legion for one of their many ranging tours of the outer rim, dealing with rebel insurgency and less than appreciative locals.

She spent the majority of her career with the 327th, earning the respect of what few clone officers remained over her long and combat filled career. Eventually she climbed the ladder far enough to make Brigadier, much to her annoyance. And was assigned a desk on the ISS Dominator

Name: Eida Terak

Age: 38
Height 1.7 meter
Weight: 63kg
Hair: Black   
Eyes: Brown
Rank: Lieutenant Commander
Status: Active Duty ISS Dominator
Current Profession: Squadron Command, ISS Dominator
Aspirations & Goals: Command of a Fighter Squadron, a Move to the test squadrons. Retiring peacefully to a planet that actually gets hyperspace traffic
Known Relatives: None known
Education/Credentials: Imperial Navy Academy, Flight School ISS Eliminator
Languages spoken: Galactic Basic
Religion: N/A
Quote: “All of my pilot trainers and squadron leaders said the best pilots were Correllians. Guess I’m trying to prove them wrong
Personality: Relatively laid back among her pilot peers. But tries to overcompensate for her “low birth” among the rest of the officers
Personal History: The Terak’s are farmers on Dantoonie, why they live out there was always a mystery to young Eida. Even though her grandfather always mentioned a want to get away from other people. She always wanted to be around more folk, and so from an early age. The Imperial Navy seemed like a good way out, ever since that tired looking recruiter came and posted an add in the space port, and told the citizens that the Empire would be back every year looking for new recruits.
It helped that Eida was a good bushpilot, she was skilled with landspeeders and the little cargo shuttle her family owned to transport their crop to market. Her parents weren’t so thrilled with her life choice and attempted to prevent her from leaving, but her mind made up. She left one night for the port and was on the transport early next morning.
Training was harder than she thought it was going to be, but she worked hard at it. Not content to become a communications officer or get a position where she could be sent to some outer rim patrol. Instead, she made it into the top one third of candidates and was selected for flight school. Flight school was difficult, but she stayed in the fighter bracket. Got good scores on simulators and adapted well to the early adoption of actual fighter training aboard a star destroyer…
However, she was assigned to a bomber squadron, a place where fighter washouts went! Her CO told her it was simply the needs of the empire, but she had her reservations, especially since she’d outscored a kid who she knew had parents in the Admiralty. However that wasn’t her problem at the moment, her problem was making herself into the best bomber pilot she could be, and that. She excelled at. She made Lieutenant within two years of coming to her squadron, and knew bombing with the less than capable spacecraft like it was an art. After a long time stuck at Lieutenant, when perhaps an opponent passed away, her application to become a Lieutenant Commander was accepted. And she was given squadron command over the bombers of the Dominator. A newer ship and her first real command.
Interests and Hobbies: Cinema, shooting, finding a name for the squadron, darts and drinking.
