Name – Nareia Norre
Age - 24

Standing at 5’9, Nareia’s athletic lifestyle has given her a body reflecting it. Lean muscle encompasses her from head to toe, yet does nothing to conceal the curves and femininity that bore fruit in her late teens. Despite it, she’s more comfortable in a stained full-body suit than she ever was in a dress.
Her outfit on assignment is a standard Rebel Flight Suit with a helm that is primarily red with twin black vertical lines from front to back. The starbird – emblem of the Rebellion – is colored black as well.
Her casual wear is a sleeveless black shirt beneath a dark brown vest with four pockets, two on each side, as well as a holster on her inner left flap to draw a blaster in a dire situation. Black pants and boots wrap up the attire.

Nareia was born the daughter of an Incom Corporation engineer, Tahje Norre, on the world of Fresia, where she grew up sharing her father’s love and fascination with both developing starships, working on them, and even flying them. Her idea of playing was looking through her father’s manuals and watching him work on ships while incessantly asking questions about his process. She was taught how to handle a fusioncutter by eight, and was already flying beside her father in a Z-95 by the time she turned twelve. Intending to become a part of the Incom Corporation and help shape new ships to fly herself, Nareia’s dreams were shattered by the Empire’s desire to embed themselves with the company.
Her father had decided to abandon the company along with several other colleagues and throw his lot in with the Alliance, bitterly against the Empire’s growing presence in their lives, and Nareia had joined him without question. They had lived a life largely free from their cold grip, but weren’t ignorant of the fact that not all in the galaxy could be so lucky. Silently supporting the Alliance’s efforts from a distance all this time, this would ultimately be the push he needed to finally help free the galaxy beside them. Having assisted in getting them prototype T-65 X-wings in development, and passing on the knowledge of their whereabouts on the planet, her father was one of many scientists and engineers who aided in adding their intellectual power and technological knowledge to the ranks of the Alliance.
For a while she was satisfied with assisting in starship maintenance, but the destruction of Alderaan had ignited a fire inside her that she could not quell by pursuing her passive passion. She stepped away from her engineering lifestyle to become a pilot and fly against the Empire, her father giving her his blessing after a heated, lengthy discussion. Taking courses from veteran pilots and impressing each one of them over time, Nareia had quickly risen from rookie to elite within a year of following her new path. She did not shy away from any mission whether it was simply a patrol, an escort, or striking at Imperial targets. This also applied to starship usage; while fond of her own X-wing, she had volunteered to fly alongside multiple squadrons using a variety of ships necessary to complete assignments, including A-wings, Y-wings, T-47 Speeders, and later B-wings.
Showing rapidly increasing skills in each fighter used by the Alliance, her flexibility allowed Alliance High command to shift her around multiple active squadrons, never remaining in one for too long. Her efficiency and dedication to the cause had eventually gotten the attention of Wedge Antilles, one of the survivors of the Battle of Yavin, who had invited her to joining the ranks of Rogue Squadron originally formed by Luke Skywalker, comprised of some of the best pilots the Alliance had to offer. Flying as Rogue Six, she had assisted in over a dozen strikes on Imperial targets prior to the Battle of Endor, where Rogue Squadron had been named Red Squadron to honor those that destroyed the first Death Star.
As Red Six, she assisted in providing cover for the most vulnerable frigates during the Battle of Endor. When the shield over the incomplete superweapon was brought down thanks to Han Solo and his ground team, she joined Wedge and the other remaining pilots in the assault on the Death Star’s core, eventually assisting in diverting the attention of several TIE pilots from Wedge and Lando Calrissian who ultimately saw to the battle station’s destruction.
After the celebrations and mourning, Wedge had reached out to her about her new role as a potential leader of her own unit. Choosing to keep the title of Red Leader, Wedge had spoken to Alliance High Command about forwarding Nareia as the new leader of Rogue Squadron should she accept it.
Nareia Norre, now known as “Rogue Leader” to fellow pilots and Alliance personnel, led the charge when it came to the Alliance’s air superiority. Her unit was composed of the best pilots she could gather, just as Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles had done before her. Their notoriety had grown with each mission given as they worked to maintain the momentum gained after the destruction of the second Death Star. Their appearance not only weakened the morale of Imperials that recognized them by formation and raw ability, but it also strengthened the allies they worked with, bringing confidence and reassurance that helped significantly turn the tide in their favor.
Unfortunately, despite the decisive victories against the Empire’s failing power bases across multiple systems, the facilities they’ve destroyed, the fleets they’ve helped protect and decimate, the power of politics had slowed their operations considerably in the last month, giving Imperial fleets too much time to catch their breath.
Having put her team through rigorous training exercises to keep their skills sharp, they look forward to the day that High Command leaves the politics to the politicians and finally commits to ridding the galaxy of the tyranny of the Galactic Empire for good.
Han Solo has recently been in contact with her, looking for Rogue Squadron’s assistance in freeing the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk.
