The Birth of the Rebellion
With Palpatine's power growing greater numerous senators of the Galactic Republic began holding secret meetings, preparing for the possibility of Chancellor Palpatine seizing complete control of the Republic, including Padme Amidalla and Jar Jar Binks of Naboo, Mon Mothma of Correllia, Bail Organna of Alderaan, Meena Tills of Mon Calamari, and Yarua of Kashyyk. The fears of these senators were realized following the end of the Clone Wars, when Palpatine declared himself Emperor, and the Jedi enemies of the Republic, enemies of his Empire. Years passed and the Galaxy rapidly fell to the power of Palpatine's Empire, many races were enslaved, including the Mon Calamari and Wookiee people, the Galaxy needed a symbol a man who could give them hope, and they found one in the unlikely place of an aspiring Sith, the secret apprentice of Darth Vader, Galen Marek. Vader told Galen to assemble the enemies of the Empire, to rally them behind a symbol, so that they would be able to help overthrow the Emperor's tyranny. Galen succeeded, but it was soon apparent that Galen was a pawn, used to expose the traitors to Palpatine. The leaders of the newly formed Rebel Alliance, Galen himself nearly died at the hands of his master in the ambush, but lived and managed to board the first Death Star, and rescue the Rebel Leaders at the cost of his own life. The newly formed Rebellion had now chosen a symbol, the family crest of the Mareks.
