CPT Xylo Pethtel first joined the TIE Corps after fighting by our side against both Rebel and Imperial remnant forces nearly a year ago. Since then, he has had a highly decorated career, earning four Silver Stars, eight Bronze Stars, and many other awards - including the coveted Iron Star with Platinum Wings. He is stepping down from his command position in order to spend time studying leadership in the Imperial University, and we wish him well and look forward to his return.

CM LQC-75-3, previously Flight Leader in Inferno Squadron and currently one of the top pilots in the fleet, has stepped up to take the vacant position. I have absolute confidence that Inferno will grow and excel under his leadership. Congratulations, Commander.

ISDII Warrior CMDR applications open to TIE Corps

VA Marenta

19 July, 2022 15:52
30 ABY

The ISDII Warrior will be restructuring back down to 12-member squadrons, and that means that we will be opening up Psi and/or Sigma and would like to open up applications to the entire fleet. Since we will be restructuring the squadrons, you will have pilots that were assigned to other Warrior squadrons before the shift, so you will need to be willing to work with their former CMDRs to get up to speed on your pilots. So, this is an interesting dynamic, and you will need to be flexible.

I will be accepting applications through July 25. With your application tell me what leadership experience you have (either in the EH or real life), what types of activity you would like to run, and how you would foster a new squadron identity. You can email me (marenta@gmail.com) or DM me your application, and if there are any follow-on questions I will reach out.

For the might of the Empire!
