Malan Durance was born on Alderaan as the third of four children. He had a typical Alderaanian childhood and eventually joined the Planetary Defense Force, serving under General Rieekan. After his discharge from the PDF, he began working with his brother Tarik (now a successful businessman) as his Chief of Security. The Durance brothers and a small retinue travelled to Coruscant for a series of business meetings and were off-world when “The Disaster” happened.

Eventually, the truth about the Empire’s atrocity came to light and Tarik and Malan joined the Rebellion. Malan eventually participated in the strike on Endor and was found guilty of “maliciously abusing” an Imperial prisoner. He was demoted to a Support (Duty 5 points) role in the Rebellion and despises his position. Recently, Malan was informed that his brother passed and requested that his remains be taken to “The Graveyard” and released amongst the ashes of their homeworld. Malan will fulfill his brother’s last request. Malan also wants the opportunity to strike back against the Empire (Quest – Vengeance) and will do anything for the chance.
