The Rebel Alliance stood bravely against the evil of the Galactic Empire, never backing down despite overwhelming odds. Formed from resistance movements that arose during the Clone Wars, the Rebellion worked in secret for decades to overthrow the Emperor and restore democracy to the galaxy. Eventually, armed with the firepower of ships like the X-wing and A-wing, and the leadership of figures including Princess Leia and Admiral Ackbar, the Rebel Alliance triumphed over the Empire at the Battle of Endor.
Some time after abandoning Dantooine, Alliance High Command transferred operations to a new headquarters on the jungle moon of Yavin 4. There, stone temples built by a now-vanished species have been transformed into hangars, barracks and a command center. From Base One, as the Massassi site is known, rebel leaders direct the fight against the Empire.
Antoc Merrick commands Yavin 4’s starfighters before the Battle of the Death Star, flying as Blue Leader. He joined the Rebellion from the Rarefied Air Cavalry of Virujansi, where he served alongside his friend Garven Dreis, later Red Leader. Merrick knows unit cohesion and cooperation are vital for the Starfighter Corps, and cares deeply for the pilots under his command
General Merrick may be the inspirational leader of Starfighter Command, but Bandwin Cor oversees day-to-day operations. The colonel works closely with General Dodonna to determine how best to utilize Yavin 4’s critically important fighter squadrons. His gift for cool, dispassionate analysis ably complements Merrick’s talent for leadership.
Dustil Forell is in charge of Support Services for Alliance High Command. It’s a thankless task, as the Massassi base has less than a dozen medium freighters and a converted light freighter for transporting materials and personnel. This complement is inadequate, and Forell knows an evacuation would strain these meager resources to the breaking point.
