- "I've waited thirty years for this. I still remember my last orders. The day the real war began."
- ―Iden Versio
Versio grew up on Vardos. Her father was an Imperial admiral, and her mother an artist, who contributed to the designs of propaganda posters. She trained her entire life to be an Imperial commander, and joined the ranks of the Galactic Empire, but was not without her criticisms of it. She participated in the Battle of Yavin under the call sign TIE Sigma Three.
Knowing they were defeated, the Inferno Squadron looked to her for direction. Versio led her troops to avenge their Emperor, by hunting down the people responsible for his demise and the destruction of the second Death Star, namely, Luke Skywalker.
