Echo Rantae is a male Trandoshan and the founder of the T'doshok Alliance.


Early years

Echo was hatched on the arid world of Trandosha, located in the same star-system as Kashyyyk, to a middle-class Trandoshan family during a militaristic time. The ancient enmity between the reptilian Trandoshans and Wookiees was at a stand still as both races united to rebel against the tyrannical hegemony of The 12 Colonies (TTC). Before Echo was born, however, his two brothers had already enlisted with a local militia, and his sister was set to wed Lord Drachnun, who later fled when he chose life over honor. When Echo reached fifteen years of age, he joined a local militia to fight alongside his last remaining brother. This sibling was killed during a bloody uprising in Trandora — Trandosha's capital city — when shrapnel reflected from an ion cannon shot impaled him. Echo served alongside his general, the five last remaining officers of the 122nd Assault Squadron, one of which his brother, for close to three years, making small headway against the TTC control.

Eventually, the uprising was crushed and those who opposed TTC were slaughtered. Seeking shelter and a new home, thousands of Trandoshans were emergency transported to the farthest reaches of the galaxy. Echo was aboard the last shuttle that departed, the YT-2000 122nd Guardship was the vessel. His older brother went with an earlier shuttle to Naboo, although, no communication has been returned from my attempts of contacting him. His sister stayed behind to care for those wounded, to his knowledge is still alive, as no medical reports have been broadcasted.

Federation Life

After arriving on Falleen Prime, Echo assisted with constructing living areas, shops, and hospitals, in an attempt to build some sort of commerce and stabilize his people once more. The Falleen populace living in the area were more than helpful in assisting the displaced Trandoshan refugees. They lent tools, time, and manpower to finish the jobs quickly. Post completion, Echo met a general of the Falleen Federation Marine Division, had a few stiff drinks with him, talked about TTC, and its effect on neighboring star-systems. Later Echo was approached by another high-ranking officer in Falleen Federation, Lieutenant Tyler Davik, who later convinced Echo to enlist in the glorious Falleen Navy.

After completing his rigorous academy training under Michael MaCleod, Echo climbed the ranks over a period of sixteen months, during which time he retained the rank of captain. Echo led the Department of Education as Dean, Department of Diplomacy as Royal Ambassador, FIB Intel, Academy Instructor, Ministerial Attached of MoD, and working on major tax planets builds. During this time, Echo was also a part of the Operation led by the New Republic to take the power from TTC from his beloved homeworld, Trandosha. Fulfilling to say the least to again know his home was free, and in good hands, he visited on occasion, helping rebuild what had been lost. When he reached the rank of Lieutenant, he swore to protect King Bisz Aldaris of the Falleen monarchy with his life.

Although he felt he should remain with the Federation, Echo knew there was more for him to accomplish — a higher calling. After a successful career in the Falleen kingdom, Echo decided this era had come to an end. On Year 9 Day 61, Echo left Falleen Federation, hopefully leaving behind a legacy of dedication, shown by his comrades as well.

Rogue Squadron

Echo then enlisted with Rogue Squadron, a new regime situated in the Outer Rim Territories. Echo recycled his beloved YT-2000, 122nd Guardship and constructed the CR-90 Assassin-class Corvette, 122nd Pride of Kiyorath from the very parts and materials of the Guardship that saved so many. Within Rogue Squadron, Echo helped stabilize the recruitment process and expedite fleet maneuvers, as well as his general embassy responsibilities. It was during this time that the Aj'Salans Nathran, Treemare Daywalker called upon him. Echo was accepted into AS around the same time that he had joined the federation. Aj'salan was one of the first Royal Clans of Falleen Federation. Being one of the few remaining, it was an honor to be accepted into the ranks. Even through the early days in the Federation, Echo was active within the structure of the clan.

With Aj'Salan slowly regrowing, the time had come to form the church for which it and the other Noble Clans have worshiped under. Soon thereafter, Order of Kiyorath Dhin was publicly formed, lead by Nathran Daywalker, and Echo as Master Templar.

T'doshok Alliance

With the ever increasing demand for senients to come in contact with their own racial heritage, Echo took the initiative to form the T'doshok Alliance (TA), a racial fraternity for Trandoshans. Although the membership roster is confidential due to its personnel being part of the Galactic Alliance (GA) and some from Imperial Union (IU), many Doshans are in contact with their brethren. The services that are provided are expansive, ranging from ships to stations. And to many Trandoshans around the galaxy, TA has helped them gain a better footing the galaxy.
