Star Wars Age of Rebellion: Dawn of Defiance
Admiral Tyria Garza
Elin Garza was born on the planet Fondor. When the Clone Wars began with Garza forged her identity credentials at the age of 17 in order to enlist in the Republic Navy. She soon reached the rank of lieutenant and was awarded the command of a Pelta-class Frigate.
During her career, she was awarded a number of commendations, including the Medal of Valor, the Silver Crescent, the Mark of Dedication, and the Chancellor’s Service Medal, and was recognized as one of the most experienced officers in the Republic’s Navy. She was renowned for her genius at both military tactics and strategies, and possessed an almost-flawless record of operations.
She despises politicians repeatedly interfering in military matters, preferring to keep them on a need-to-know basis. At some point after the end of the Clone Wars she this belief caused her to become rivals with Grand Moff Tarken and Director of Imperial Intelligence Armand Isard forcing her out of the Navy and into service in the Fondor planetary defense fleet. At some point after this she retired from active service and was enlisted into the Rebelions cause by Senator Garm Bel Iblis.
