⌈ CHARACTER SECTION ⌉

Character: Bail Organa
Age: 51
Canon: Star Wars
Canon Point: Three years post-RotS

Background: Background character extraordinaire

Personality: Like many Alderaanians, Bail is a firm believer in peace. Throughout the Clone Wars, he frequently pushed for a diplomatic solution to the conflict. Despite being repeatedly thwarted in his efforts to resolve the situation, he never ceased pushing for peace. He is a skilled negotiator and expert public speaker and many believed that if anyone could make it happen, it would be him. It seems he spends half the Clone Wars cartoon permanently on the verge of giving an inspiration speech.

Bail is well known for being a voice of reason in the Senate. He is capable of seeing both sides of many issues and adept at bringing both sides together to a workable compromise. This does not, however, mean he is a doormat. He realizes that there are limits to compromise and is not afraid to take a stand. This drive for justice led him to form the beginning of what will eventually become the Rebel Alliance. While he hides it well, there is often a great deal of anger beneath the surface.

When he does take a stand, he demonstrates an incredibly strong will. As the Republic slowly morphed into the Empire, he was a frequent voice of dissent. Despite his decade long tenure in the Senate (and various other political roles before that), he has never allowed power to corrupt him. A rare trait, in Republic politics. It should also be noted that while he believes in peace, calling him a pacifist would be going too far. He is willing to fight to defend himself and, more importantly, others. It is simply not his first choice of action.

Generally, when he does take a stand it is motivated by compassion. Alderaanian culture places a high value on all life. It is thus no surprise that he spent the majority of the Clone Wars lobbying for the plight of refugees. He did not want the war destroying the lives of the very people it was supposed to protect. Nor was he willing to see the Republic become something other than the force for peace and stability he firmly believed it to be.

Much like a certain speech, Bail loves democracy and loves the Republic. Unlike that speech, it's actually true. While he was aware of the incredible problems with corruption in the Senate, he felt the stability it brought was important to galactic peace. This led to an intense loyalty to the Jedi due to their role as galactic peacekeepers. Seeing the horrors wrought by Palpatine's Empire only reinforced this belief. And he is not afraid to bring this up.

In addition to his public persona, Bail is also a devoted family man. He deeply loves his wife Breha, who he often wishes he could spend more time with, and wished for a long time to start a family with her. He is a devoted, affectionate father to his young daughter Leia. Her true parentage has never caused him much concern, as he thinks of her simply as his little girl.

Abilities: Bail lacks any superhuman abilities. He is a skilled orator and negotiator. He is also a surprisingly good shot and pilot. Palpatine found him exasperatingly difficult to kill.

Alignment: Sosyne. Bail is famed for staying cool and collected under pressure. At the same time there is a definite undercurrent of anger that drives him into the rebellion.

4th Walling: Go nuts
Canon Point: Roughly three years after Revenge of the Sith
Physical description: Middle aged, with a medium somewhat olive complexion. He has dark hair, brown eyes and a goatee. His build is relatively unremarkable, but he carries himself with confidence that is hard to miss. He generally keeps himself well groomed. Or in other words he looks like this.


Canon Information
History: Bail was born 67 years before the Battle of Yavin, heir to the royal house of Alderaan. He had three sisters: Rouge, Celly and Tia. The birth order among the Organa children is unknown, but given the relative prominence of their careers, it is likely that Bail was the eldest child.

Little is known of Bail's early life, but he was groomed for politics from a young age. Bail was somewhat reluctant on this front, but eventually realized he could make a difference through interactions with more civic minded politicians, including future Republic Chancelor Finis Valorum.

When Bail was 35 years old, a feud erupted between House Organa and House Antilles (not to be confused with the Antilles family of Corellia. It is apparently a very common name in the GFFA) over who had the rightful claim to the Alderaanian throne. Initial attempts to resolve the ascendency contention through democratic means led to three votes which failed to resolve the matter. The government thus requested outside assistance and the Jedi Jorus C'baoth was sent to resolve the matter. The end result was that Breha Antilles became queen, with the stipulation that she marry Bail Organa.

Shortly after the ascendency crisis, a vote of no-confidence was called on Chancellor Valorum over the Naboo blockade crisis. One of the potential successors was the Alderaanian Senator Bail Antilles (Bail is also apparently a very common name in the GFFA). Antilles ultimately lost to Palpatine... which was most likely a Very Bad Thing. Antilles chose to retire from the Senate and was replaced by Organa.

Bail's time as senator proved to be quite eventful, beginning with the separatist crisis. He had quickly gained the attention of Chancellor Palpatine and thus was appointed to the Loyalist Committee, which attempted to find a way to keep the Republic intact. While Bail is at heart a pacifist and thus a logical choice for a committee viewed by many as a way of blocking the military creation act, it quickly became apparent that there would be no diplomatic solution and he advocated swift action. To ensure that this would be possible, he voted in favour of Jar Jar Binks' proposal to grant Chancellor Palpatine emergency powers. Not the best move ever.

During the chaos of the Clone Wars that thus erupted, Bail also faced personal challenges. He and Breha longed for a family, but even with the best medical care available in the Republic, were met with struggles. A series of at least five miscarriages nearly resulted in Breha's death. At this point, doctors advised against further attempts as it was not clear whether Breha would survive further attempts. They thus began to consider adoption instead.

Shortly after the beginning of the Clone Wars, Bail was given the coordinates to a Sith planet. Knowing that Padme Amidala, a Senator he had formed a close friendship with, was aware of the Sith, he asked her to contact the Jedi for him. While Obi-Wan Kenobi initially asked only for his contact, Bail refused to reveal his contact due to her delicate place in the Republic. He instead went with Kenobi to the planet. They often clashed on the journey, particularly when the Sith spirits on the planet began to affect Kenobi. Just a bit of attempted murder. However, the efforts required to survive the trip led to a mutual respect that would prove very important in the future. Palpatine was trying to get them both killed, but all he managed to do was make them bros.

While Palpatine appointed Bail head of the Galactic Republic Security Committee, his primary concern throughout the war was the plight of the many refugees that resulted. He often personally undertook relief missions on the front lines. Which often got him into trouble that caused him to cross paths with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. He also fought to keep funding in place for social programs as the costs of the war mounted.

As the war continued, Bail became extremely concerned with the amount of direct power Palpatine was amassing. The Jedi, with whom Bail had an increasingly close relationship, were likewise concerned. Bail was quite vocal in his statements about the need for Palpatine to relinquish his emergency powers. This is likely why he was specifically targeted in an assassination attempt orchestrated behind the scenes by Palpatine in order to justify further security measures. He was approached by Finis Valorum, who encouraged him to continue speaking out before his own death as part of the same plot.

Bail was present at the Jedi Temple when Anakin Skywalker attacked as part of the larger Jedi Purge. After a padawan was gunned down in front of him, he escaped the temple determined to prevent any of the surviving Jedi from falling into the trap. He was able to save Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda.

He returned to Coruscant just in time for all his concerns to be justified when Palpatine declared himself Emperor. While he was appalled, Padme encouraged him to vote in favour of the measure in order to obtain inside information. He did not, however, applaud. He immediately began planning for a resistance movement.

Rescuing Yoda was fast becoming a hobby as he was able to reach him before security forces after Yoda's unsuccessful attempt to take out Palpatine. Yoda informed him that Palpatine is a Sith, which very few would know for decades. They then met up with Obi-Wan and Padme, who died after giving birth to twins. Of initially undiagnosed injuries from Force choking, not a broken heart (this was stated in Coruscant Nights, it's not just me being annoyed that her death was stupid). When Yoda declared that the twins should be separated and hidden, Bail immediately volunteered to take the girl. He also gave R2-D2 and C3PO to his brother-in-law Raymus Antilles, wiping only Threepio's memory because Artoo can actually keep a secret.

The resistance movement began quickly. Bail organized many covert operation. Talk of open rebellion began after civilians were massacred for protesting against taxation. Bail began to meet with Mon Mothma and Garm Bel Iblis to discuss the movement, though the formal Rebel Alliance was not founded until quite a few years after his canonpoint, which is roughly three years after Revenge of the Sith.

Personality: Like many Alderaanians, Bail is a firm believer in peace. Throughout the Clone Wars, he frequently pushed for a diplomatic solution to the conflict. Despite being repeatedly thwarted in his efforts to resolve the situation, he never ceased pushing for peace. He is a skilled negotiator and expert public speaker and many believed that if anyone could make it happen, it would be him. It seems he spends half the Clone Wars cartoon permanently on the verge of giving an inspiration speech.

Bail is well known for being a voice of reason in the Senate. He is capable of seeing both sides of many issues and adept at bringing both sides together to a workable compromise. This does not, however, mean he is a doormat. He realizes that there are limits to compromise and is not afraid to take a stand. This drive for justice will eventually lead to him founding the Rebel Alliance, though that is still many years off. While he hides it well, there is often a great deal of anger beneath the surface.

When he does take a stand, he demonstrates an incredibly strong will. As the Republic slowly morphed into the Empire, he was a frequent voice of dissent. Despite his decade long tenure in the Senate (and various other political roles before that), he has never allowed power to corrupt him. A rare trait, in Republic politics.

He is a devoted, affectionate father to his young daughter Leia. Her true parentage has never caused him much concern, as he thinks of her simply as his little girl.

Strengths Bail lacks any superhuman abilities. He is a skilled orator and negotiator. He is also a surprisingly good shot and pilot. Palpatine found him exasperatingly difficult to kill. He is loyal to both ideals and individuals and truly believes in the things he stands up for.

Weaknesses While he generally has good judgement, it's not infallible (See: Palpatine). He can be by times overly cautious before finally acting or speaking out (though he became more willing to speak as time went by). Despite the above mentioned combat competencies, he is still by no stretch of the imagination a warrior.

Emotions

There's a lot of confusion that's likely to sneak through because of his incredibly kriffed up family situation. Also guilt about the fact that he's concealing information from his castmates. And some fear that they might find out that information.

Happiness, too. His daughter is wonderful.

Memories

- Attending endless debates about the succession, ending in Jorus C'Baoth intervening and deciding Bail will marry Breha
- At the hospital during the fifth miscarriage that nearly killed Breha, and the fear that it just might. The doctor telling them that Breha is unlikely to survive another attempt.
- Personally seeing to the evacuation of refugees in the middle of a warzone
- Palpatine declaring an Empire
- Bringing baby Leia home to Breha
- Quiet conversations with Mon Mothma in the dead of night discussing what to do about the Empire
- Reading Leia a bedtime story
- Leia presenting him a formal petition against naptime
