Rival – Rebel Alliance Liaison
Rebel Alliance – Formally known as the Alliance to Restore the Republic, this organization is known throughout the galaxy as the Rebel Alliance or simply the Rebellion, even among its own members. Essentially a large coalition of different factions opposed to the Galactic Empire, the Rebellion is vastly less organized than most believe. The core group of dedicated assets and personnel is commanded by Alliance High Command, but a great number of their cells and satellite forces are affiliated but largely autonomous. This has created any number of difficulties for the Alliance as a whole, particularly when their associates commit an act that causes a public relations backlash against the entirety of the organization. Given the nature of their struggle, it is the best that the Alliance can hope to achieve until the balance of power begins to shift.
One of the Alliance’s greatest strengths is the diversity of its members. While the Empire is known for its ruthless stance against non-humans, the Alliance recognized the strengths and rights of all species, and as such, a significant number of Rebel agents and operatives are non-human. Indeed, some of the more persecuted species, including Bothans, Mon Calamari, and Sullustans, joined the Rebellion en masse, helping in part to compensate for the overwhelming advantage of numbers that the Empire enjoyed over the Alliance.
From Edge of the Empire
The Alliance to Restore the Republic is a vast organization that would be a serious threat if it didn’t stand in opposition to perhaps the most extensive military organization ever created: the Galactic Empire. As a result, the Alliance must operate in the shadows, working with small groups to achieve minor objectives in hopes of building toward a much larger victory one day in the distant future. Most Rebels have no objection to working with criminals and other “scum,” even if some among their leadership object to such sullying alliances. Smugglers in particular are popular agents for the Alliance because the credits are good and the work is exciting, if dangerous.
