Star Wars – Adversary Data File
Rival – Quarren Agitator
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
All too often, there” are occasions when diplomacy simply cannot achieve the ends the Alliance requires in order to move closer to ultimate victory against the Empire.” There are many governments in the galaxy that have, either for selfish reasons or simply out of fear, allied themselves with the Empire and refuse to consider any other potential path. Most Quarren, for example, were reluctant to join the Rebellion following the liberation of their homeworld, and so many rabble-rousers stepped up to attempt to bring their people into the fold.
When a planet’s government refuses to recognize the best interests of its people, agitators are used to reach the people themselves. Agitators are a very diverse lot, from those who possess incredible passion and charisma, to the manipulative and deceitful. Regardless of their methodology, however, it is a profession with very little room for error; having practiced, and survived, their attempts to convert their homeworld, many Quarren agitators now apply their tactics on behalf of the Rebellion in the wider galaxy.
