Star Wars: The Long Road Ahead
General Ran Niall
Former Imperial Navy officer, now a Rebel General
Human male, middle-aged, tall with silver-blond hair buzzed short.
Ran Niall was a decorated Imperial Navy captain during the early years of the Empire, commanding the vessel The Pride of Stars.
During a routine stop for ship maintenance and shore leave, he witnessed an atrocity on the surface of the planet, as Imperial stormtroopers gunned down a group of citizens who had spoken out against oppressive taxation and harsh penalties by the Empire.
Greatly shaken by what he had seen, Niall decided to defect to the Alliance along with his ship. In the years since, he has been a vital member of the Alliance. His ship was destroyed during one of the countless battles, and today Niall spends most of his time commanding from Arda I.
