Jarion Renalds

From Emperor's Hammer Encyclopaedia Imperia

Captain Jarion Renalds is currently a Flight Member within Rho Squadron, Wing II, Battlegroup V of the TIE Corps.

He was formerly a Protector in the Dark Brotherhood, and was also once a Specialist in the Hammer's Fist.

Early History[edit]

Jarion was born in 3 BBY on Coruscant to a Mandalorian father and Coruscanti mother. His family was considered middle-class by the standards of the planet's living society and therefore Jarion had an average upbringing, being too young to understand galactic politics during the waining years of Palpatine's Empire. Despite this, as he developed through his childhood he took a keen interest in spacecraft, earning himself a part-time apprenticeship as a mechanic at a starport when he was fourteen.

Luckily for him, his parents had enough in the way of credits and connections and managed to enroll Jarion into an esteemed Naval Academy upon his sixteenth birthday. It was in this environment that the Mandalorian really flourished, showing just how far his passion for military-grade spacecraft could go. He eventually graduated fourth of his class in 15 ABY and shortly thereafter had earned himself a commission as a Lieutenant in the New Republic Defence Fleet, flying the famed X-Wing fighter.

New Republic Defense Fleet[edit]

His service was not off to a good start, Jarion lost his right hand in a mid-air collision and the subsequent crash landing during a training exercise in Coruscant's atmosphere. Fortunately, he managed to land his badly damaged fighter in an industrial district which gave him enough flat space to land successfully. After the accident and a hearing into the incident, it was decided that the other pilot had been at fault and Jarion was given a suitable prosthetic replacement to continue his duty in the fleet.

Throughout the next six years the Coruscanti's training was put to good use, being deployed to numerous locations around New Republic space and seeing his fair share of space combat in the final years of the Galactic Civil War. It was during this conflict that Jarion saw for himself how faults in the tactical and strategical aspects of the organisation had led to many unnecessary casualties amongst New Republic Forces.

As a result of this in 21 ABY, the then disillusioned Captain eventually took his chances and managed to hijack an empty shuttlecraft whilst the ship he was serving on was patrolling through the Outer Rim Territories. Having heard from the hushed whispers of his former comrades that an Emperor's Hammer affiliated ship was in the area, and knowing well what a good opportunity it was to advance his own career, Jarion made a bee-line for the destroyer and promptly turned himself in on touchdown in the hangar bay with the intent to defect.

TIE Corps[edit]

Little time past after his records were checked over, and the Coruscanti was assigned to the infamous TIE Corps as a Cadet. He went through through the recruitment process at a steady pace, being retrained through the Imperial Weapons and Tactics School onboard the Modified Platform Daedalus. Jarion was promoted to Sub-Lieutenant upon graduation and assigned to Beta Squadron aboard the Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Hammer, flying the TIE Advanced starfighter. Despite a shaky start with the vastly different flight system, Jarion managed to utilise his previous naval experience and prove his worth to the Commander, receiving a swift promotion to full Lieutenant in a matter of days. It was around this time that the Mandalorian heard over the counter of the off-duty bar that the Logistics Office were short-handed and looking for more volunteer. Having been responsible for some of the logistics during his days with the Republic, Jarion sent of an application to Vice Admiral Mark Schueler and was keenly assigned as an Archivist.

After a month of active duty with Beta, Lieutenant Renalds was transferred to Epsilon Squadron, this time flying the TIE Defender. He would remain with this squadron for almost two years, the first half of this assignment as a Flight Leader, partaking on a countless number of patrols and skirmishes with pirates and stray Republic vessels. In the free time between assignments, the Mandalorian would often keep himself busy stocking the inventory and updating orders of battle for Vice Admiral Schueler. After stepping back into a wingman role, Jarion decided to focus more on his office work than being an active-flying pilot. Nevertheless, after many months spent filing sheets and stocking request forms, the Coruscanti was transferred over to Alpha Squadron, again as a Flight Leader. This time behind the controls of a Spectre Advanced Missile Shuttle, the Mandalorian was promoted to Lieutenant Commander two weeks later, and remained at this post for another two years. .

Hammer's Fist[edit]

Having found his position in the pilot's seat diminished greatly by his work with the Logistics Office, Jarion found himself with a need for some action in his day to day life. With the approval of his superiors. the Mandalorian enlisted with the Hammer's Fist and was placed in Delta Squad, nicknamed Eode's Eopies and assigned as an Airborne Infantryman. Jarion found that he thrived with ground combat, and quickly earned the attention of his commanding officers. It wasn't long before he was promoted up to Corporal and reassigned to lead Alpha Squad, the Mandalorian relying much on the space tactics he had been taught as a teenager but tweaked to suit ground formations and movements.

His success with leading the squad earned him a further promotion to Specialist, and it was many months until his service was cut short after a serious injury fighting pirates. Hanging up his Stormtrooper helmet for the time being, Jarion decided to return to full-time flight duty with Alpha.

Remnant, Recommission and Rho[edit]

In 25 ABY with the threat of the Yuuzhan Vong looming over the galaxy, Jarion had become frustrated with the idle stance held by the Emperor's Hammer. After four years of service he was discharged at his own request and travelled to Yaga Minor in Imperial Remnant territory. The pilot did not hold the Republic with much regard and assumed he'd integrate into the Remnant far better. Jarion spent the next three years as an NCO in the Stormtrooper's Corps, participating in skirmishes with the Vong from the devastation of Muunilinst to the well known Battle of Bastion in 28 ABY. His squad was whittled down during the conflict until only two remained, and it was as he boarded the dropship to leave the capital world that the soldier surmised that he'd done his part to protect Imperial Space from the intergalactic invaders.

With this major threat to the galaxy suppressed, the former Lieutenant Commander returned to Emperor's Hammer Territory and asked to be recommissioned as a TIE pilot and given his previous occupation in the Logistics Office. Partially to his surprise, the request was approved and Jarion was assigned to a new unit flying the indomitable TIE Interceptor. Rho Squadron was stationed on the ISDII Warrior under Colonel Hav Antiel, and it was Jarion's first time serving on any Star Destroyer other than the Hammer. Having missed fighting in the cockpit and the vacuum of space, the Coruscanti took to his new position with a renewed passion, a Flight Leader job awaiting him after two months of service. Despite the Mandalorian's previous time in other squadrons, he found Rho one of the most comfortable assignments he had been given in his career, despite flying what was arguably an unshielded death trap. Unlike before, he made more of an effort to get to know the other pilots, and enjoyed gambling and drinking with his squad-mates whenever the opportunity arose. It was not long at all before Jarion was promoted to a full Commander. Shortly after this he took part in the yearly Raise The Flag event with his squad, and was overjoyed when Rho managed to wrench victory from the hands of the Hammer and every other squadron to become the TCCOMM's Escort Flight. Another few months down the line, the Coruscanti was promoted once again, this time to Captain. He still continues to lead Flight II, and can often be found in the hangar bay admiring the custom art on his TIE Interceptor.

Personal Life[edit]

Due to Jarion's Mandalorian heritage he often travelled to Mandalore during leave. It was here in 18 ABY that he met Dha'kalyc Dane Beviin during a night of heavy drinking on the streets of Keldabe. They both managed to find themselves in the middle of a cantina brawl and assisted each other in leaving relatively unscathed. They grew pretty inseperable over the following months whenever Jarion was off-duty and eventually married in a private ceremony on Mandallia.

It is through this union that he is related to an esteemed Mandalorian Protector and Dark Jedi, Kalon Tsucyra Entar.


Despite preferring to trust in the reliability of a blaster rifle or pistol, Jarion has honed his melee skills to a tee. Ever since he was a child he has been a practitioner of the Jakelian form, which relies heavily on the use of blades. It was most famously taught to Clone Troopers bred on Kamino by their Mandalorian instructors, and one of these instructors just happened to be his father.

When it does indeed come to range then Jarion's weapons of choice are the EE-3 Carbine Rifle and Westar-35 Blaster Pistol due to both their reliability and raw stopping power. Alternatively, when it comes to closer ranges then the Mandalorian is more than comfortable using a variety of bladed weapons and staffs, having studied a variety of weapon skills when he was a student at the Naval Academy on Coruscant and then again with the TIE Corps, Hammer's Fist and the Dark Brotherhood.
