Taking over the management of one of the factories in 6 BBY at the age of 18 he and his family were constantly harassed by the local Imperial garrison who controlled the planet as part of a Deal with the newly formed CSA. Learning early in his adult life that Strength and Cunning were needed to Florioush in face of this endless humiliation from the Human-Centric Empire. Offering great deals and perks a long with a few bribes to local garrison commanders as a result his family's businesses Prospered especially as he was taken on as an Apprentice to the CEO of Galactic Electronics moving him to the capital world of the Authority Etii IV in 0 BBY.
Learning from his new mentor for the next 4 years he mastered the art of manipulation and charming beings into less than favorable deals for themselves he positioned himself close to the CEO so that he could take his place.

Name: Corporate Sector Authority

Type: Corporate Dictatorship

Description: a coalition of Mega Corporations that rule over the corporate sector with minimal Imperial oversight
Backstory: (At least two paragraphs) First formed in 490 BBY the Corporate sector was meant to resolve differences between many of the galaxies megacorporations and Coruscant. Though only containing a handful of systems thought to have no intelligent life at the very beginning over the centuries it had grown to over 30,000 by the time of the declaration of the new order. through shred political maneuvering and having financial lobbyist in the ears of Palpatine the Corporate sector was born in 22 bby shortly after the declaration of a new order. Acquiring numerous older vessels from the empire to form its picket fleet the CSA has a capable though aging defense fleet.


Since the birth of the Empire, they had kept an adviser to make sure the Authority was keeping up with its tithe in materials and ore as well as the 3% of its GDP it was required to give in exchange for it to be left to its affairs. Despite the agreement that didn't stop some of the companies within the Authority from selling to the rebellion as Galactic Electronics had sold an EM warhead to the Alliance resulting in its research facility occupation by the Imperials that increased tension between the Authority and the Empire as the Drex board didn't appreciate the Imperials sending forces into its territory. and now that the Emperor has died at Endor the CSA looks to openly stay neutral and sell to both sides at its own peril and maybe reopen old wounds with the Hutts.

Yusss, The Imperial civil war is now cemented with multiple outright seccesionists and reformists that can begin blasting eachother to bits!

yes, very true. To be honest though, I dont know how openly warlike I will be if my Tetan Authority gets in, at least at first. My priority is the destruction of the New Republic and to gain Empress Teta influence in whatever new system arises to replace the Empire

hmmm, good luck getting food and ammo to your men on the fortress worlds of the Deep Core without the Koros trade spine and Byss run.

I am sure we can arrange a mutually beneficial agreement to allow supply lines to continue running. The alternative would of course be to reach a deal with the New Republic or Titan command, leaving your worlds to be starved out and denied military resources...

I am really debating pulling the Eclipse... :/ I'm not really a fan of superweapons and I fear bringing the superlaser to bear will just cause more issues than it would add to the story.

Have it be unavailable until a later point in the RP.

Also, the Eclipse is not that powerful... it can crack cotinents and stuff, but really, a sizeable fleet could likely do something similar given a day even. As well, we dont really know how well it would fair in fleet combat, considering it is fairly lightly armed for its size.

In point, I would say go for

I get that, the issue with the superlaser is moreso the instant "this ship is dead" that the superlaser gives. Killing other SSD's, flagships and / or the valuable characters aboard without much to counter it.
But I suppose having it under construction would make some interaction possible.

I'll read it when I can to provide some sort of comprehensive list of stuff. Still waiting on him to review mine.

This said, let's not be hasty with the Tetans. Those who may yet be won by diplomacy should be approached in that manner first; the waste of vessels in any conflict between ourselves only serves to aid the New Republic. Titan Command views their destruction to be paramount in tandem with the formation of a new Imperial state.

Yess, I get that. But the Imperial civil war in Cannon did involve a LOT of infighting. It is a large part of the charm, conflict and drama inside the Civil war era. We can't just go all happy go lucky, shake hands and suddenly agree to fight the new republic in a single united front and ignore our various personal goals either.
It would make the situation a lot more bland.

Maybe not go full on bloody war to bleed ourselves entirely dry, but not be all friendly and without conflict or intrigue either.

I mean, All of us want to have fleets of Star Destroyers clashing out in space, don't we?

Maybe I can cause some infighting among the Imperial Remnant factions with that action. I also wonder if I should have Rouge wing attached to the Emancipator or use tie fighters instead.


Emancipator would be assumed enemy due to the following factors:
  • Registered vessel (Every warship has a registry number)
  • Incorrect IFF codes (IFF is changed on a relatively frequent basis and she won't have the most up to date codes)
  • Imperial I-class vessels don't just randomly pop out of nowhere on the hyperlane
Trust me when I say that she will, if encountered by Titan Command elements, be challenged and ordered to stand down shields/weapons/engines and stand by for boarding parties.


With a collapse of Imperial unity, the Emancipator could still have some uses to spoof the various Imperial factions. Imp factions would know it wasn't part of THEIR imperial faction, but if multiple Imperial forces have been forced to operate semi-independantly, the Emancipator could theoretically pose as a ship originating from another warlord, hoping to defect or passing through.
It would could theoretically still have some use to spoof. But it is known that the Rebels use various captured Imperial and civilian ships at this point in time.

While yes, it also makes sense for characters to want to have a unified Imperial front against the NR. Someone just needs to be a paranoid bastard somewhere to make the sort of tension required to create civil war.

I mean, yeah, but if several Imperial forces have been forced to operate together semi-independently then presumably someone (honestly, probably Halder) will try to force the use of a collective IFF codes. People need to know friend from foe after all.

I gather we have almost too many Imperials (I mean this is only technically Imperial, but practically independent) now, so this could all be a waste but here we go anyway

WIP - Faction section complete, just finishing off bio

App
Name: Darth Herlucan/ Revar Tulin

Faction Name: The Sith Empire (Imperial 19th Fleet)

Appearance: Darth Herlucan

Age: 25

Personality: Revar Tulin, the self-anointed Darth Herlucan, is a twisted and dark creature of the dark side; one who is quick to anger and incredibly impatient, Revar is a being of rage whose incomplete training leaves much to be desired when compared to his former Master, Darth Sidious.

Skills: As a former Hand of the Emperor, Revar is proficient in the use of melee weapons and blasters and is force-sensitive. While no true Sith Lord yet, his training under the tutelage of Emperor Palpatine has put him on the path to great power.

Weapon: Red lightsaber, SE-14r light repeating blaster

Ship: Bellator Class Star Destroyer Rage

Rank: Self-Appointed Dark Lord of the Sith, formerly Hand of the Emperor


Bio: Born on the world of Dantooine at the dawn of the Clone Wars in 22BBY to a long-standing farming family, Revar Tulin may not have amounted to much had the galaxy not had plans for him. And so it was that mere months after his birth, in 21BBY the Confederacy of Independent Systems and their armies of battle droids descended upon the surface of the planet and began occupying the planet. During the occupation, Revar's parents both joined the resistance forces against the separatists and led raids against the droid armies time and time again, until towards the end of 21BBY Jedi Master Mace Windu and his Clone troopers launched their operation to liberate the planet. It was at this time that Revar's parents noticed that there was something rather...different about their child; he was force-sensitive. Upon the liberation of the planet, Mace Windu approached the Tulin family and made it clear that the Jedi would return for Revar, but that with the ongoing war and given the child's age, it was too early to take him to the Jedi Temple. Continuing their cooperation with the Republic and it's Grand Army, Revar's parents became part of Dantooine's Planetary Defence Force which was to become its first line of defence against the Separatists. In the final days of the Clone Wars, the Jedi returned to Dantooine to retrieve Revar for his Jedi training. The Jedi Master with his escort of a dozen clones entered the family's house to meet the young Revar. As the Jedi Master crouched down to introduce himself, Revar saw a flash of blue light illuminating the doorframe of his room and heard the faint words that would forever haunt him "Execute Order 66". Revar never did learn the Jedi's name for mere seconds after hearing those words he was shot in the back by his clone escort. Telling his parents that there had been a rebellion led by the Jedi against the Supreme Chancellor, the clones then left the house and returned to their ship. They would return; and when they did, they wouldn't be leaving again.

Outraged at the seizure of power by Palpatine as the Emperor of the newly born Galactic Empire, Revar's parents left their positions in the Planetary Defence Force and joined the new resistance force growing on Dantooine. With the downfall of the Jedi and knowledge of a force sensitive child who had not yet been corrupted by the Jedi, Emperor Palpatine tasked a platoon of his new Stormtroopers to take custody of the child and bring it to him. When the Stormtroopers arrived, Revar's parents assumed that they had come for them since they had conducted numerous raids on Imperial installations, so they opened fire on the Imperials. It was no use; Revar watched on as his parents fell before him. After being kidnapped by the Emperor, he was trained by Sidious and countless other instructors including Boba Fett and Bossk over the next 15 years until Sidious believed he was ready to carry out his first assignment. Now aged 18, he was ready to crush the Rebellion, but Sidious had other tasks for him first... Arriving on Dromund Kaas for the first time, Revar believed the planet to be a simple jungle world much like Felucia or Dagobah. As he approached the coordinates given to him by Sidious, his eyes widened as the Dark Temple appeared before his eyes. The great monument to the Sith Empire continued to stand long after the civilization that had created it has ceased to exist. Now, Sidious had tasked Revar to retrieve as much ancient Sith knowledge and artifacts as possible. Taking an interest in what he was gathering; Revar listened to every holocron, read every Sith text and attempted to wield every ancient weapon in the temple.


Name: Sith Empire (Imperial 19th Fleet)

Leader: Darth Herlucan
Type: Imperial Remnant
Number of Members: 500,000
Number and Types of Ships: 1 Bellator-Class Star Destroyer Rage, 3 Imperial-II Class Star Destroyers, 5 Imperial I-Class Star Destroyers, 10 Victory-II Class Star Destroyers, 20 Tartan Patrol Cruisers
Base(s): Dromund Kaas, Korriban, Ziost
Resources: N/A
Description: Based upon it's namesake of millennia ago, the Sith Empire seeks to do what its predecessor and Sidious could not; take and hold the galaxy. Darth Herlucan believes it was the reliance on technological terrors such as the Death Stars and lack of Sith influence which proved the downfall of Sidious' Galactic Empire and so has used the old Sith Empire as the model on which he will build his new state.
Backstory: Witness to the great power wielded by force users such as Darth Vader, the Emperor and Revar himself and disillusioned with the technological constructs of the Empire following the disastrous Battle of Endor, the Imperial 19th Fleet with its headquarters on Dromund Kaas, proclaimed the rebirth of the ancient Sith Empire of old with Revar Tulin at its helm. No more would the Imperial Bureaucrats such as Tarkin nor heretical beliefs such as the Rule of Two hold the Sith back from their birthright; control of the Galaxy. Sidious' final order to Revar a year previous had been to reclaim the ruins of Kaas City from the jungles of Dromund Kaas and to repair what he could and scour the ruins for knowledge and artifacts. Learning much of the former Sith Empire from his time on the planet, Revar became obsessed with his Sith predecessors, something which the Stormtroopers and Imperial Navy troops under his command soon came to share; enraptured by the stories of Grand Moff Odile Vaiken who had come from nothing and in the end became the first Imperial Grand Moff and was responsible for rearming the Sith from their darkest hour.

Upon the news of the destruction of the Second Death Star and the deaths of Darth Sidious and Darth Vader, Revar proclaimed himself the successor to Sidious as Darth Herlucan and declared an end to the rule of two. While not yet declaring himself Sith Emperor, he was claiming it in all but name. While several captains in orbit decided to desert after receiving this news, almost all of the 19th Fleet which was under Revar's command swore fealty to him as their new leader. Over the last six months, the Sith Empire has expanded to encompass not just Dromund Kaas, but also Ziost and Korriban; ancient core worlds of the Sith. All the while, Sidious' final order has continued to be carried out, with Kaas City cleared of jungle and mostly repaired. With his seat of power secured and his fleet's loyalty secured, Darth Herlucan now prepares to expand his empire and crush the rebellion once and for all.

Yeah, that. Also, I doubt that it'd be allowed for him to, you know...listen to Sith holocrons, especially as a mere Hand, and I'm pretty sure Vader would kill him for that sorta thing. He didn't abide competition.

It's not like he's telling anyone other than those under his command yet. He'll certainly be telling the other Imperials, but to the rebels he'll just be another warlord.
Also he's under the belief that it was the lack of Sith influence and over reliance on technological terrors such as the Death Star that caused the deaths of Sidious and Vader

He was a Hand of the Emperor; Vader didn't know he existed and Sidious permitted him to.

I'll offer up my scalpel first, then.
  1. Boba Fett and Bossk wouldn't train him; at the time of Order 66 Boba was still a kid running around.
  2. It is amazing that a Terentatek has never attacked him, as he plundered Sith tombs with little regard.
  3. Telling tales of Grand Moff Odile Vaiken is like me telling tales of the grand exploits of Francis Drake against the Spanish Armada; by no means are Stormtroopers and Imperial Navy officers going to be enraptured by them. If anything, it'd probably lead to distrust because a random guy who has command authority for seemingly no reason is just...spouting stuff about the long-dead.
  4. Proclaiming yourself a successor (and Sith) to a guy not widely known as a Sith is like a US Navy Captain proclaiming to be a Polish Hussar or a French nobleman. People don't immediately follow you for it.
  5. The Rule of Two was not widely known.
The result of this is that I don't see people "swearing fealty" because of your proclamations.

WIP - Faction section complete, just finishing off bio


I'll offer up my scalpel first, then.
  1. Boba Fett and Bossk wouldn't train him; at the time of Order 66 Boba was still a kid running around.
  2. It is amazing that a Terentatek has never attacked him, as he plundered Sith tombs with little regard.

I wasn't suggesting Boba trained him immediately when he was like 3, but further down the line like when he was 10 (12BBY) which makes more sense.

Bio is still to be finished. There will be some fun encounters such as that in it.

Except if you've just been defeated by the Rebellion and your entire state has collapsed around you, looking to examples like Grand Moff Vaiken for an almost direct comparison isn't totally wild. Would it be the only thing to convince the Stormtroopers and Imperial Navy officers that the Hand of the Emperor should be the one they pledge their loyalty to? No. Would it help, yes. I'll be elaborating more on him winning over the troops in the later sections of the bio to come.

The Rule of Two would have been something a Hand of the Emperor was aware of. He wouldn't openly say it's the end of the rule of two much like Darth Bane never proclaimed to the galaxy the rule of two, so I'll amend that bit
