Biography[edit]

Early History[edit]

Coronel Both was born on Corellia in 12 BBY. His father was an Engineer who worked for Corellian Engineering Corporation while his mother worked in Sales for Gowix Computers until their corporate headquarters was relocated from Corellia to Corulag in 1 ABY. He has one older brother who left Corellia to join the New Republic when Coranel was sixteen. As citizens of Corellia, Coranel's family were considered middle class. While not wealthy enough for private education, the jobs of his two parents were enough to provide for their family of four.

At the age of five, Both was diagnosed with a virulent strain of the Endregaad Plague which kept him in bed for six months.

Joining the TIE Corps[edit]

Frustrated with what he considered his brother's betrayal of joining the New Republic, Coranel signed up with the Corellian Defense Fleet as soon as he turned eighteen years of age. He served with distinction in the CDF for four years before abruptly retiring with little explanation given to his superiors.

Coranel served in the TIE Corps from 10 ABY until 15 ABY, where he held positions as low as that of a Flight Member to as high as the Battlegroup Commander of the TIE Corps Battlegroup. In 15 ABY, he resigned his position as Commodore of the ISD Challenge and left on a Leave of Absence that lasted for 9 years with little to no explanation (except, it is rumored, to his closest friends aboard the ISD Challenge and ISD Vanguard). He returned aboard a Marauder-class Corvette (with little explanation of where he had gone or what he had been doing) to resume the duties of a TIE Corps pilot in Beta Squadron aboard the ISD Hammer.

Alignment and Attitude[edit]

Like most Corellians, Coranel has a dislike for nearly all figures of authority. He does, however, feel strongly about the Galactic Empire being the government of the future and feels that the New Republic does not truly care about it's citizens the way that the Empire does. Fishing and hunting are two of his favorite hobbies and anytime he takes a leave of absence, it is usually to go to a backwater world to do one of those activities.

With the thoughts of betrayal that have existed since his brother left to join the New Republic, Coranel has a very pro-Empire stance. He truly believes that the Empire is the government of the future.
