|Chronological and Political Information|
Jace Paol was a Human male Corellian who served in the Rebel Alliance during the First Galactic Civil War. After joining the Rebel Alliance, he served a second-in-command of Red Hand Squadron that was formed by Bria Tharen and followed Commander Tharen on her diplomatic stints, as well as participating in the capture of the Helot's Shackle and the battle of Ylesia. He was killed, along with the rest of Red Hand Squadron on Toprawa while attempting to beam the Death Star plans to Princess Leia Organa aboard the Tantive IV.
Born on the world of Corellia, Jace was one of those that joined the Corellian Resistance to stand against the Galactic Empire. He also served as a loyal aide to Bria Tharen during the time before the Rebel Alliance was born. In 2 BBY, Jace accompanied Bria to Bespin when she learned of a major sabacc tournament being held on Cloud City. Upon arriving to the city, Jace and Bria met with representatives from three other resistance groups; Jenssar SoBilles from Duro, Sian Tevv from Sullust, and Hric Dalhney, Winter and Ylenic It'kla from Alderaan.
After the signing of the Corellian Treaty, Jace served in the rank of Lieutenant in the Rebellion and joined Bria's Red Hand Squadron as second-in-command. In 1 BBY, a year after the Rebel Alliance was formed and the second year of the First Galactic Civil War, Jace followed Commander Tharen on her diplomatic stints, as well as participating in the capture of the CR90 corvette Helot's Shackle, which was full of Exultation-addicted slaves from Ylesia. Jace managed to survive the fight while the boarding was fierce and violent.
Later, Jace and his team were also the key to the battle of Ylesia. Accompanied by Han Solo and the Wookiee Chewbacca, Jace and the rebels were forced to divert to their alternate landing site on a beach over two kilometers from the center of Colony One. Splitting the Squadron into two, Jace was ordered by Commander Tharen to lead his troops to eliminate the turbolaser to allow reinforcements to land safely while she led the rest of her troops into the colony to secure the factories, welcome center and dormitories.
After the battle of Ylesia, Jace would make his final stand on Toprawa. There they were tasked with taking and holding an Imperial communications center long enough for the stolen Death Star plans to be beamed to the corvette Tantive IV, which 'happened to be passing through the system'. The mission was successful, but the squadron took heavy casualties, and Jace was subsequently overrun and killed by the Imperial counterattack.
