Background: Zare Leonis was a male human Imperial cadet at the Academy for Young Imperials on the planet Lothal who worked as a spy for the rebels. Born to Leo and Tepha Leonis on the planet Uquine, Leonis and his family traveled as part of their work for the Empire before settling on Lothal. Leonis joined the planet’s Imperial Academy to discover the truth about what happened to his sister, Dhara, who had vanished from the Academy.
Leonis began his schooling on Lothal at the Junior Academy of Applied Sciences, in which he played as the center striker of the school’s grav-ball team, the AppSci SaberCats. During this time, he led the team to a winning season but also had to contend with the xenophobia of the school’s athletic director, Janus Fhurek. He also began to learn of the Empire’s activities on Lothal and how his friend and grav-ball teammate, Beck Ollet, tried to rebel against them. It was also during his time at the Junior Academy that he learned of his sister’s disappearance, resulting in his decision to enroll in the Imperial Academy.
At the Academy, he struggled to present himself as a model Imperial cadet. Secretly, he aided rebel activities and searched for any information that could aid his search for his sister, assisted on the outside by his girlfriend, Merei Spanjaf. During his time at the Academy, Leonis walked a fine line, appearing on the outside to be doing everything he could to serve the Empire, but struggling for any scrap of information that would lead him closer to his goal. His activities drew the attention of the Galactic Emperor’s fierce Jedi hunter servant, the Grand Inquisitor, but he also picked up a mentor in the form of the instructor Lieutenant Chiron, an instructor at the Academy with a sympathetic nature.
Leonis’s activities ultimately earned him a transfer to the Imperial Academy on the planet Arkanis. It was there that Leonis’s sister was being held; however, his mission took an unexpected turn as he learned of the presence of a secret society within the academy, the Commandant’s Cadets. Founded by the Academy’s Commandant, Brendol Hux, the goal of this group was raise Imperial officers hyper-loyal to the Galactic Empire from an early age. Leonis made it his mission to infiltrate this society and ultimately succeeded, but his true nature was betrayed by his old friend and teammate Beck Ollet, who had been captured and brainwashed by the Empire. He underwent a sham tribunal and was sentenced to death, but the last meal offered to him by Chiron provided him with a chance to escape. After reversing the Empire’s brainwashing of Ollet, the two, with the help of Spanjaf, his family and friends, and the group of rebels from Lothal known to him as “the Spectres,” Leonis succeeding in rescuing his sister and escaping the grip of the Empire.
