STAR WARS: The Moon Swing Chronicles
Retired Imperial Admiral
Adar Tallon was a renowned military starfighter tactician and naval commander who served the Galactic Republic, the Galactic Empire, the Alliance to Restore the Republic, and the New Republic. A legend in his own time, Tallon devised such maneuvers as the Tallon Roll and the Tallon split, which would be used decades past their invention. Tallon served with distinction in the Clone Wars, where his starfighter combat tactics were put to good use against the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Alongside Captain Jan Dodonna and Jedi General Plo Koon, he fought at the Battle of Rendili, which resulted in a Republic victory over the Confederacy.
When Supreme Chancellor Palpatine declared himself Galactic Emperor and transformed the Galactic Republic into the Empire, Tallon served the New Order, leading naval forces against Separatist holdouts. However, he later took a stand and publicly spoke out against the new regime. But the war hero soon discovered that Palpatine was far too powerful to be defeated, and so Tallon feigned his own death. Hiding on the planet Tatooine, Tallon settled down and married, and was content for two decades. But due to the betrayal of his former shipmate Quist, Tallon found himself once again the target of Palpatine’s agents. Tallon escaped being captured by a group of bounty hunters led by Jodo Kast with the help of the members of Thermal Force (See Tatooine Manhunt).
Left with little choice, Tallon joined the Rebel Alliance, and actively fought against Palpatine’s New Order. Working alongside Admiral Gial Ackbar, starship engineer Walex Blissex, and Rebel pilot Jake Farrell, he helped develop the RZ-1 A-wing interceptor. At one point, Tallon’s naval command saw him lead Rebel forces into the Battle of Heterkus.
