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
The Alliance depends heavily upon a number of vehicles and starships in order to maintain their desperate struggle. In order to maintain this incredible array of technical marvels, the Alliance relies upon skilled technicians and mechanics to keep it in contention for victory in the Galactic Civil War. While many of its engineers’ Imperial counterparts have extensive military training, the Alliance tends to recruit civilians with practical experience and expertise. Commercial mechanics, personal enthusiasts, and generally anyone with a grudge against the Empire who has sufficient background is welcome to join the Alliance and serve.
