- "We all have to put our pasts behind us. All of us. That includes even the people on our side, much less Imperial loyalists."
- ―The Contessa, to Thane Kyrell
The Contessa was an alias used by a human female who served in the Alliance to Restore the Republic as leader of the starfighter squadron Corona Squadron. She was a fairly serious woman and very capable at leading her squadron. On her homeworld, she was once high-ranking nobility and lived in a palace. She fought in the Battle of Hoth and the Battle of Endor, as well as leading Corona Squadron on many reconnaissance missions around the galaxy. One notable battle she took part in was the dogfight in the Hudalla system. After the Battle of Endor, she left the Rebel Alliance to run for the presidency on her homeworld.
