Military deserters from the Eternal Empire like Koth Vortena don't get far without reliable people watching their backs. If not for the aid of his diverse crewmates, Koth likely wouldn't have survived to become the rebel leader he is today--much less one allied with Lana Beniko and the legendary Outlander.
Among Koth's trusted band of roughnecks are his second-in-command Len Parvek, who was a valued subordinate officer serving Koth in Zakuul's army. Len saw many fellow soldiers die in Arcann's unprovoked aggression against the Core Worlds, and was eager to join Koth in rising up against the tyrant. Along the way, Koth and Len found allies like Ralo, a former Republic corporal who was aboard Darth Marr's flagship when it was destroyed, and Tora, a genius engineer whose surly personality has earned her enemies from one end of the galaxy to the other.
