Rival – Incom Engineer
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 Age of Rebellion
One of the few significant advantages that the Alliance possesses over its Imperial adversaries is in the quality of its starfighters. The Battle of Yavin demonstrated to the entire galaxy that the nature of space warfare had changed, and that individual craft of high quality, operated by highly skilled pilots, could defeat enemies of vastly larger size, firepower, and number. Until the appearance of the TIE interceptor, it was widely acknowledged even in Imperial circles that the X-wing was the premier starfighter in the galaxy. The design team of Incom, the company that developed the X-wing, had long since defected to join the Alliance. Since that time, the individual team members and their hand-selected engineers-in-training have become the most elite technical consultants the Alliance has, offering innovative advancements to the organization in a number of different arenas, but most often in the area of starship enhancement.
