"For I am Viscount Rabael Dir Glorio, 26th in line to the massacred throne of Alderaan, only surviving scion of the House of Glorio—"
―Glorio reveals himself to the Empire and his allies[1]

Viscount Rabael Dir Glorio, also known by the moniker Violet Ghost, was a member of the Alderaanian House Glorio. In 0 BBY, he was the only member of the house who survived the destruction of their homeworld by the Galactic Empire and swore revenge on the Imperials, concealing his identity and starting to work as a mercenary. Around 1 ABY, he accepted a job with the Son-tuul Pride on the planet Son-tuul, but was left behind to die when the group's patrol transport was surrounded by Imperials.


"The Violet Ghost. Mysterious stranger making a name in swordcraft and incorruptible morals. Probably an undercover prince, some crap like that."
―Aphra makes notes on Glorio[1]

Rabael Dir Glorio was a human male viscount of House Glorio of the planet Alderaan who stood as twenty-sixth in line to the throne of his homeworld. When Alderaan was destroyed by the Galactic Empire[1] in 0 BBY,[3] Glorio was offworld on what he later claimed was a totally legitimate diplomatic mission to the pleasuredomes of Thyron VII.[1] Glorio would go onto chose to not join with the group of surviving Alderaanians brought together by Princess Leia Organa[2] and pilot Evaan Verlaine.[4]

Instead, Glorio, at that time the only surviving member of his house, concealed his identity and began working as a mercenary under the name Violet Ghost, making a name for himself in swordcraft and incorruptible morals.[1] Around 1 ABY,[5] the viscount took a job with the Son-tuul Pride criminal group, gathering with a number of other mercenaries who had accepted the job on Son-tuul. The group waited aboard a patrol transport for their leader, the archaeologist Doctor Chelli Aphra to arrive and when she did the doctor scanned each of them and made notes.[1]

Aphra's boss 0-0-0 then informed her that she would have to leave one member of mercenary group behind as they weighed too much for the starship to take off. Imperial stormtroopers then started to surround the vehicle, and making her decision, Aphra ordered Glorio to get out and fight them off. He successfully defeated the first group of stormtroopers and then announced his true name and intention to take vengeance on the Empire, before asking Aphra for backup as a large number of Imperial reinforcements were approaching. Aphra, however, had already taken off with the rest of the mercenaries on the ship, abandoning Glorio to face the wrath of the Empire alone.[1]
