- "After our history of oppression and slavery, certain factions have vowed to never have it happen again. There are those of us who have dedicated our lives to the continued liberty of our world, for ourselves and our children. Against again comers, First Order or otherwise."
- ―Charth Brethen
The Ryloth Defense Authority, or RDA, was a military group founded to defend Ryloth from oppression and slavery. A philosophical descendant of the freedom fighter Cham Syndulla's Free Ryloth movement, the Ryloth Defense Authority operated with the knowledge of the Ryloth government, though also acted independently as a supplemental militia. It was led by former Rebel Alliance operative Yendor. In the aftermath of the Battle of Crait, Yendor and the Ryloth Defense Authority provided assistance to General Leia Organa's Resistance.
