Rival – Imperial DeStab Agent
Imperial Empire – Bureaucracy – While the military of the Empire is often the more present threat for the Alliance, as well as various other groups who have attracted the Emperor’s ire, most citizens have far more to fear from the different branches of Imperial bureaucracy. Filled with individuals who revel in power and protocol, each individual section of the Imperial bureaucracy presents a never-ending maze for anyone who finds himself in need of navigating it. When not in combat situations, members of the Alliance often find their endeavors hopelessly complicated by Imperials who have no knowledge of who they are, but who make life difficult simply because it is their job.
From Age of Rebellion
The Destabilization Branch is a particular agency within Imperial Intelligence, and is regarded by the Alliance as the most evil of all Imperial facets. The purpose of Destabilization is to ensure that sufficient fear and terror grips the galactic populace such that they rely upon the Galactic Empire to maintain social order and convention.
DeStab agents tend to be exceptionally patriotic, but are often sociopathic in the execution of their duties, and have no regard for life whatsoever, not even among the ranks of other Imperials. Some of the most significant atrocities of the Galactic Civil War were instigated by DeStab agents, although some were avoided thanks to Rebel Alliance intervention.
Relatively early during the conflict, surgically modified DeStab agents infiltrated the ranks of the Mon Calamari and Quarren races on the planet Mon Calamari and attempted to spark a war between the two, to ensure that they would be unable to supply the Rebel Alliance with the starships needed to maintain its struggle against the Imperial Navy. The Alliance thwarted the attempt, but sadly, many similar plots throughout the galaxy have gone undetected until it was far too late.
