    New Republic/Galactic Alliance Military 

Admiral Traest Kre'fey

A Bothan admiral and cousin of Chief of State Borsk Fey'lya, Traest Kre'fey is an unusual Bothan: he has little time for the political spygames of the clans, focusing instead on ensuring the military is ready to respond to any threat. As such, he was one of the first military officers to truly appreciate the threat of the Yuuzhan Vong and take steps to respond to them. He stayed on the frontlines for most of the war, and acted as one of the Jedi Order's biggest allies in the military. He briefly held the post of Commander in Chief at the end of the war, but was forced to resign out of support for the Bothan's declaration of genocide against the Yuuzhan Vong.

Admiral Sien Sovv


  • Desk Jockey: It's noted this was his specialty: keeping the military organized and running smoothly. While he is a very competent commander, he was unprepared for the Yuuzhan Vong and relied on others like Kre'fey and Wedge to come up with the winning tactics.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: He was supposed to be retired, but the beginning of The Unseen Queen reveals that he was still Commander of the Galactic Alliance navy until shortly before the novel, in which he is murdered in a Killik arranged ship crash.
  • Four-Star Badass
  • Reasonable Authority Figure

Admiral Nek Bwua'tu


Admiral Cha Niathal

A ambitious Mon Calamari admiral, Niathal conspired with Jacen to overthrow Cal Omas during the Second Galactic Civil War and take control of the government. However, she soon found out that Jacen had become Darth Caedus and was becoming completely unhinged and committing war crimes, disgusting Niathal and making her ally with the Jedi Order to stop him. After the war ended, she retired to Dac, although many wanted her to be prosecuted for her collaboration with Jacen. When charges were brought against her, she committed suicide rather than face them.
  • A Mother to Her Men: Her one redeeming trait is that she values her men. It doesn't make her any less sleazy, though, and it's subverted when two thirds of the GA military prefers an insane Sith Lord to her.
  • Black Shirt: The moment she appears, you know she's going to launch a coup, and has no problem with what Jacen is doing (initially). She's that transparent. Jacen notices, and recruits her into his scheme.
  • Dirty Coward: Her suicide comes off as this. She couldn't even face a reprimand, despite collaborating with and ruling as a dictator. Compare this to the highly public trial for Tahiri Veila. And she didn't kill herself.
  • Driven to Suicide: After political pressure forced Daala to bring charges against her despite a previous deal, Niathal
  • Dropped A Bridge On Her
  • Enemy Mine: With Luke Skywalker's Jedi Coalition
  • Epic Fail: All of her plots eventually end up like this.
  • Evil Counterpart: This woman is basically an evil Ackbar.
  • The Generalissimo: Who made the mistake of sharing power with a Sith Lord.
  • General Failure: The Jedi usually have to save her sauce once she breaks from Jacen, and he later crushes her.
  • Heel-Face Turn
  • Jerkass: She willingly destroys galactic democracy for her own ambitions. She becomes nicer once she realizes how badly she's screwed up.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: When she realizes how evil Jacen is and how much damage she did helping him gain power.
  • Our Chiefs of State Are Different: Chief of State Scheming and Chief of State Buffoon. She's a horrible and utterly incompetent politician.
  • The Starscream: To Cal Omas
  • Unwitting Pawn: While she always had ambition, Lumiya influenced her through the Force to act on it in ways she never normally would have.

Admiral Gavin Darklighter

Related to Biggs Darklighter, Luke's Mauve Shirt friend from A New Hope. He debuted in the X-Wing Series as a member of Rogue Squadron, and worked his way up to leader of Rogue squadron during the New Jedi Order. He became a fleet commander by the time of the Dark Nest Trilogy, and in Fate of the Jedi he became the leader of the Galactic Alliance Space Marines as an Admiral.

Admiral Sallinor Parova

An ambitious female human admiral, Parova joined the Lecersen Conspiracy in order to take power as Chief of Naval Operations and purge the military of non-humans.
  • False Friend: To Daala.
  • Fantastic Racism: After Bwau'tu is hospitalized, Parova mocks him as alien scum, and later plans to make a Fallen captain who serves her loyaly into her gardener once the conspiracy wins and they are able to put non-humans into their "proper place".
  • Character Death: By the Lost Tribe, who pin the blame on Jedi.

General Eldo Davip


General Merratt Jaxton

A male human, Jaxton was the Chief of Starfighter Command in 43 ABY and a member of the Imperial-Alliance Conspiracy.
  • Driven to Suicide: Forced to commit suicide by General Thaal, who uses him as a scapegoat when the conspiracy falls apart.
  • False Friend: To Daala.

Commodore Turk Brand


  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's very abrasive, but also a dedicated and competent commander who cares about the lives of his men and civilians.

Captain Syal Antilles

The eldest daughter of Wedge Antilles and Iella Wessiri, she followed her fathers footsteps into the the Galactic Alliance Starfighter Corps, flying under a false name so she would not be treated differently due to her heirtige. Caught in the middle of the Second Galactic Civil War, Syal attempted to uphold her oaths of loyalty to the Galactic Alliance while in increasingly became a despotic state.
  • Ace Pilot: She is the only pilot in all the Star Wars cannon who fought Luke Skywalker to a standstill in a dogfight. Not Rebellion-era Luka Skywalker, but Jedi Grand Master Luke Skywalker. This was immediately recognized by all her squadmates as a feat beyond comprehension.
  • Guy in Back: Not her, but she has a Sullustan gunner named Zueb Zan when flying an Aleph-class starfighter.
  • Properly Paranoid: Being raised by Wedge and Iella will make a girl like this. She always carries a hidden blaster on her, which proves useful when a Corellian spy tries to turn her.
  • Sole Survivor: Her and Zueb were the only members of their squadron to survive the firing of Centerpoint at the Second Fleet.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Her fiancÚ Tiom Rordan was killed when Centerpoint was used to destroy the Galactic Alliance Second Fleet.

Captain Kral Nevil


Rynog Asokaji


  • Number Two: To Nek Bwua'tu.
  • Revenge Before Reason: After Bwua'tu was attacked and put into a coma by what appeared to be two insane Jedi, Asokaji wanted to launch an attack on them immediately. Even Daala, who hates the Jedi, didn't believe it was them and had to talk him out of it. He calmed down after a while and realized he was wrong in suspecting the Jedi.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Bwua'tu.

Anni Capstan

A female human pilot in Rogue Squadron who was Jaina's first wingmate. They quickly became friends, but Anni was shot down and killed during the Battle of Ithor.

Admiral Bylsma

A human fleet officer in command of a mobile space station above the planet Dibrook, Bylsma became an ally of Nina and Kaye Galfridian after they assisted him in defending his station against a Yuuzhan Vong attack with their captured Yuuzhan Vong slaveship. He broke ranks with the New Republic after coming to believe that they cared nothing for the people of the Outer Rim and joined the Outer Rim Alliance.

    New Republic/Galactic Alliance Politicians 

Cal Omas

Human Senator for the Alderaan remnant population after Leia stepped down, Omas served with distinction as a fighter pilot during the Rebellion. He was one of the Jedi Order's key allies on the New Republic Advisory Council, and with their help was elected to the post of Chief of State after Borsk Fey'lya was killed during the Fall of Coruscant during the Yuuzhan Vong War. He proved a capable leader, helping guide the newly formed Galactic Alliance to victory over the invaders. However, the numerous political interests that formed after the war and pressure they put on the government led to Omas making many compromises and a shortened temper, and his relationship with the Jedi Order soured until Luke Skywalker reaffirmed the Orders allegiance to the Galactic Alliance during the Swarm War. During the Second Galactic Civil War, Omas was accused of becoming a dictator by the Confederation, and he was eventually outted by a coup orchestrated by Darth Caedus and Admiral Cha Niathal. While under house arrest, Ben Skywalker attempted to fake his death after Caedus framed Omas for the death of Mara Skywalker, but Omas forced Ben to kill him so that Caedus would have a harder time seeing through Ben's deceptions and plans to kill him.
  • Doomed Homeworld
  • Face Death with Dignity
  • Fisher King: After he died, the Galactic Alliance went to hell. Luke Skywalker even said it died with him.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: During the New Jedi Order. Afterwards, not so much, but he still had his moments.
  • Redemption Equals Death: While he wasn't evil, his actions led to a lot of the problems in Legacy of the Force. To make up for this, he makes Ben kill him instead of faking his death when Ben attempted to get close to enough to Caedus to kill him because he believed that the Sith Lord would see through Ben's lies if he didn't really kill him.
  • Retired Badass: Served as a fighter pilot during the Rebellion before entering politics.
  • Taking You with Me: He began wearing a bomb with hopes to do this with Caedus after being placed under house arrest, as he expected Caedus would come himself to kill him. He's disappointed when Ben shows up instead, but reworks his plan in hopes that his death will let Ben kill Caedus.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Between the New Jedi Order and the Dark Nest Trilogy, due to the pressures of the office and rebuilding after the Yuuzhan Vong Invasion.

Viqi Shesh

The New Repulbic Senator from Kuat during the Yuuzhan Vong war. She believed the invaders would win and served as their spy, but her deception was revealed shortly before Coruscant fell. She then became one of Tsavong Lah's advisors, all the while trying desperately to escape the Yuuzhan Vong before one of them killed her. Viqi eventually killed herself rather than be captured by the Jedi or killed by the Yuuzhan Vong.

Fyor Rodan

Human Senator from Commenor who is vehemently anti-Jedi. Lost the race for Chief of State to Cal Omas midway through the Yuuzhan Vong War and resigned from his post, eventually becoming Prime Minister of Commenor.
  • Beware The Jedi: He sees every move the Jedi make as a plot against the New Republic and his power, believing that Luke wants nothing more than to take over the government. Even years later he still distrusts the Jedi and takes the Second Galactic Civil War as a chance to take his planet out of the Galactic Alliance partially out of his hatred towards them.
  • Jerkass
    • Jerkass Has a Point: Luke concedes that some of his criticism is legitimate. However, even after the Jedi take it into account when they reform the council he still acts like an asshole.
  • Sore Loser: Granted, Lando and Talon DID actually blackmail his supporters but it was on their own initiative and it's kind of his own damn fault for attracting so many corrupt individuals that could be blackmailed.
  • Unwitting Pawn: To Lumiya during the Second Galactic Civil War, who manipulated him into siding with the Confederacy.

Pwoe

Quarren Senator representing the species of Dac, Pwoe served on the Advisory Council during the Yuuzhan Vong War. After the death of Borsk Fey'lya, Pwoe attempted to seize power, but was ignored by the rest of the government and left disgraced after attempting to surrender to the Pace Brigade.
  • Ambition Is Evil
  • Beware The Jedi: So much that he had connections to the Peace Brigade during the Yuuzhan Vong War.
  • Jerkass
  • Only One Name
  • Too Dumb to Live: Pwoe really thought he could just claim the title Chief of State and try to make a peace treaty with the Vong through the Peace Brigade. He's lucky he only got captured by the New Republic forces and didn't get sacrificed by the Vong.

Niuk Niuv

Sullustan Senator during the Yuuzhan Vong War, Niuv was a member of the Advisory Council and an anti-Jedi politician.
  • Beware The Jedi: He has zero trust in the Jedi, even after Cal Omas is elected and the Jedi lead the counterattack against the Vong. He remains the only anti-Jedi Senator on the Advisory Council by the end of the war as a concession to the anti-Jedi Senate minority.

Elegos A'Kla


Releqy A'Kla


Triebakk


Chelch Dravvad


  • Wild Card: Allied with neither the pro or anti-Jedi faction, he was usually a swing vote on the Advisory Council during the Yuuzhan Vong war.

Ta'laam Rant


G'vli G'Sil

A human Senator and head of the Galactic Alliance's Security Council during the Second Galactic Civil War. He suggested the formation of the Galactic Alliance Guard to deal with terrorist activity on Corucscant, offering the position of commander of the GAG to Mara Skywalker and then Jacen Solo after she refused. Following the coup by Jacen and Admiral Niathal, G'sil ceased his support of the twos efforts.
  • Alliterative Name
  • Genre Savvy: After Jacen and Niathal carry out their coup, G'sil realizes that there's pretty much zero chance of them ever giving up the position of Chief of State willingly and declares that he has no interest in ever trying to get the office out of fear of what they might do.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: After Jacen and Niathal carry out their coup, which was only made possible by G'sil's early political support for the two of them.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He thought the GAG, while possibly skirting the edges of legality, was necessary, since terrorist activity was starting to occur on Coruscant. Unfortunately, he didn't foresee what Jacen would do with it.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?

Wynn Dorvan
