* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Grand Admiral Thrawn is a tactical genius who manages to rise through the ranks of the Imperial military to appoint himself ''de facto'' Galactic Emperor after the Empire's leadership crumbles during a period of chaos, despite being a Chiss serving in a human supremacist military that generally looks down on aliens. He's essentially an alien UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte, right down to the distinctive [[ManInWhite white military uniform]], the [[AFatherToHisMen protective instinct towards his troops]], and the [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill strong opposition to democracy]]. Like Napoleon, he even abandons his "foreign" birth name to make it easier for his troops to accept him, and ultimately goes by a simple [[OnlyOneName mononym]]; the Corsican-born "Napoleone di Buonaparte" adopted the French name "Napoléon Bonaparte", and eventually just "Napoléon", while the Chiss "Mitth'raw'nuruodo" simply calls himself "Thrawn".
