Star Wars: The Edge of Darkness
Nazren Resistance Fighters
The Nazren are a hardy but simple people from the planet Nizon. Prized as slaves by the Galactic Empire for their physical strength, the Nazren are typically a peaceful people. However, after struggling under the yoke of Imperial oppression for too long, a leader rose up amongst the Nazren: Sartok.
Sartok knew that to free themselves from slavery, the Nazren would have to put aside their peaceful ways and take up arms against the Empire. His biggest challenge was convincing his people that the terrible machines of the Empire could be faced and won against. His chance came when a band of Dissidents arrived on Nizon, seeking information about a secret Imperial project. Sartok appealed to the better nature and hatred of oppression of the outsiders, and used their brave actions against the Empire to inspire his people. With the help of the outsiders, Sartok and his forces liberated the planet from Imperial control. The asteroid field surrounding the planet Nizon and the orbital defense guns ensure that Nizon shall remain free, and Sartok has promised the aid of his people in liberating others like the Nazren.
After the liberation of Dorin, Sarkok and his people returned to Nizon to return to their agrarian lifestyle. His people still maintain a militia to man the orbital defenses in case the Empire ever returns, but Sartok is confident that their focus is elsewhere as Nizon is a low priority target. Admiral Stazi had hoped that Nizon would meet the fleet’s requirements of foodstuffs but Sartok has kept Nizons exports limited to stem any attention that it might earn the planet. Stazi has begrudgingly accepted this, knowing that at least the planet is no longer supplying the Empire.
