- "Give me ground troops supported by airpower with supply lines guarded by the navy, and I'll promise you anything. Give me anything else and all I can do is my best."
- ―General Alix Balan
Following the Galactic Empire's reconquest of the galactic capital, Coruscant, in 10 ABY, General Alix Balan led a formal ceremony to reconsecrate Imperial City. This action earned General Balan fame throughout Imperial space, as well as a triumphant parade where Balan led ground forces through Coruscant's grandest boulevards.
