- "The Republic gave me medals. The Empire gave me opportunities. I did not realize I fought for the wrong men until it was too late. Now tell me: how can I help?"
- ―Colonel Strulka
Strulka was a male Advozse who lived during the last decades of the Galactic Republic. At some point in his life, Strulka joined the Republic Military, where he went on to become a decorated soldier, who favored taking the offensive in battle. Possessed of notable leadership skills, Strulka eventually attained the rank of colonel. Following the Republic's transformation into the new Galactic Empire, Strulka continued to serve the new political regime, and was afforded a number of favorable opportunities by the Empire. However, the colonel ultimately realized that the Imperials did not suit his ideals, and turned away from the Empire.
By the time of the second Death Star's destruction, the former colonel resided in the Anoat sector, where he became trapped following the enactment of the so-called Iron Blockade of the sector by Imperial Governor Ubrik Adelhard.
