Sourcebook Quotes



The recruiters see another strong back and hard heat, the perfect candidate for infantry training. However Sunber, surprises his instructors with quick thinking and strategic planning, and he is enrolled in officer training. Within a year, he is serving as a lieutenant under Captain Gaige.

- Taken from Rebellion Era Campaign Guide

He surprises his instructors with quick thinking and planning, making him to be enrolled in officer training and within a year is a lieutenant.


One of the several planets in the Caridan system, it was a large high gravity world with a wide variety of terrain. It was the site of the Empire's most important training center.

- Taken from Star Wars Encyclopedia


Where Sunber went to for training, Carida has a number of different terrains, ranging from desert, tundra, jungle, etc. So he would be able to adapt into pretty much any planet environment type. Considering he spent a year there, he would also more than likely be stronger than the average fit man.

Just showing of Sunber's tactical skill, analysis of the terrain, planning and spotting traps.


He impresses his commander, General Ziering with his quick thinking and tactics. He is promoted to Captain and then Commander(although the promotions never stick because none of the officers under him vouched that he was promoted) and Ziering says that he is a natural and not even on his best day, could he outperform him.
