Aurielle Tyraxis was an Imperial Pilot for around five years before the collapse of the Empire. Born into a Kuati aristocratic family she was educated as per the normal standards befitting a woman of status. She was a believer in the tenants of the Empire- well as the propaganda stated it. An idealist at her core- she truly did believe that they were bringing civilization and order to a bunch of backwards and backwater worlds. She was accepted into the Imperial Academy at Coruscant where she specialized in flying. She was soon assigned to a unit- namely one that was smack-dab in the Mid-Rim Offensives.
Her idealism and faith in the Empire was changed when the DS-1 was utilized. She found the concept of destroying a Core World to be abominable. But, it is very difficult to leave when your family is as prominent as hers, out of fear of retaliation against them. So she buried her feelings of shame and disenfranchisement. She flew a TIE/I Interceptor against the Alliance Forces and became a double ace during the Mid-Rim Campaigns soon being assigned to a TIE/D Defender Unit which she flew in until the end of the war. Wherein she was promoted to Captain and in exchange for a pardon surrendered her unit to the New Republic when they overran Kuat.
Life after the War was difficult for her, while she was pardoned for her Imperial Allegiance, it didn't change the fact she was a decorated captain of the Imperial Starfighter Corps and thus fought against the New Republic's predecessor the Alliance to Restore the Republic. They had no interest in allowing an Imperial veteran to join the New Republic Military and even her own family distanced themselves from her due to her affiliation. Seeing no other course- she decided to start a small business as a freighter captain. Hauling cargo all over the galaxy, she's over qualified for such business. But, it pays well and it keeps her flying. Her dream is to be able to save up enough money to purchase a nice yacht and travel the stars going world to world and coast on her family's KDY fortune.
