Elvira was an ambitious Coruscanti woman who has served in both the Imperial Army and Imperial Intelligence. She held several positions throughout her career and was generally considered to be capable but stubborn and zealous. She served in the Empire for many years but rarely mingled with other Imperials. Elvira is a prominent member of the Falston family. During the Grand Imperial Spring Games of Year 14 hosted by Lord Cherokee, she was elected Best Imperial by her peers.

Personal History

Daddy's Little Girl

Elvira Falston was born on Coruscant into a wealthy Imperial family. Her father was a merchant and her mother stayed at home to take care of her, their only child. Thanks to her stable and rich family, she grew up without having to deal with any big problems or complications, making her a slightly spoiled child, although she did possess a persistent and ambitious nature.

Business went well for Jordan Falston and the first to enjoy his success was his young daughter. Always arriving at school dressed with the latest fashion and equipped with the most expensive school gear, Elvira thoroughly enjoyed the jealous looks of her classmates and all the attention that their jealousy brought. At the age of eight she was already well-known for her meanness. Her father gave her everything she asked for and she often showed up at school with a large box of candy; candy that she would only share with those that often gave her compliments. Slowly, she grew up to become the stereotype of a spoiled girl, often mocking those who weren't as fortunate as her. This behaviour even continued in high school, where she collected a band of admirers around her and only hung out with girls whose parents were just as wealthy as hers.

A Turn for the Worse

At the age of sixteen, Elvira was called out of class one day. One of the teachers told her that she could go home, that her mother had something to tell her. Preparing several excuses to explain her bad results at school on the way home, Elvira was surprised to find her mother in tears. Her father's ship had malfunctioned and crashed as he was on his way to a business associate. Elvira's perfect world collapsed and in a matter of days, the spoiled brat became a reserved, quiet girl. She spent most her time in her room and rarely had any social contact outside of school. Around this time, she began to take interest in the behaviour of everyone around her and quietly observed her schoolmates and teachers.

When she turned eighteen, Elvira went to the University of Coruscant and studied Imperial Law. During her time at the University, she came in contact with some Imperial Recruitment Officers from the local garrison and decided to go have a look in the garrison some day, out of interest for the Empire, but also out of interest for the rather handsome officer that had visited the University. As the weeks went by, Elvira began to visit the garrison more often and started opening up again. Her new friends at the garrison allowed her to train with weapons in her spare time and they quickly noticed she was rather skilled with blasters and rifles. At the day of her graduation, Elvira walked up to her mother and informed her that she had decided to join the Emperor's military forces.

A New Life in the New Order

Elvira as a Command Sergeant in the Army

Elvira was brought to the Imperial Academy where she studied under Galdarzz Aalon, one of the heads of the Academy, who would later become a Vizier. She got along well with him and despite some issues in her personal life, she managed to pass every exam and achieved a final result of 90,3%. She chose to join the Imperial Army and RADIA arranged an assignment for her.

The young Private enlisted in the Second Imperial Legion, nicknamed the Hellhounds. She worked hard and quickly caught the attention of the legion's Commanding Officer, Colonel Graeda L'Annan, who offered her the position of History Adjunct, a position that hadn't been filled for some time. Elvira accepted and quickly began to reform the position to suit her, adding a few small responsibilities here and there to be able to help the legion more. She quickly rose through the ranks and became a Sergeant in just three months. Around that time Colonel "Grey" became Executive Officer of the entire Army, becoming the right hand of Major General Bacara Kex. Within the legion, Grey was replaced by her Executive Officer, Lieutenant Gunther Rall. He was only a junior officer and to assist him he quickly appointed Command Sergeant Tremec Basir as the new XO and Command Sergeant Euna Miriel as Legion Adjutant. This meant that the Hellhounds were led by relatively low ranks, the only officer being a Lieutenant. But nonetheless, they proved to be a great team and successfully commanded the legion, constantly improving the performance of their troops. Rall, as Grey's Executive Officer, had also noticed the ambitious Sergeant. When a new Morale Adjunct was needed to make sure the legion was kept in shape, he allowed Elvira to take the position while remaining History Adjunct. As Morale Adjunct, she organised several events and successfully managed to create a group that went past the legion borders and united all of the Morale Adjuncts to organise events together.

At a record speed, Elvira was promoted to Master Sergeant. A few days after this promotion, it was announced that Euna Miriel, Lieutenant by then, was retiring, meaning that the position of Legion Adjutant would become available. As expected, it was Elvira who was contacted by Rall to fill that spot. However, becoming part of command staff meant that she could no longer be History or Morale Adjunct. These positions were given to other Hellhounds, and Elvira was now an official member of Legion Command. She performed admirably and led many projects, making a large impact on the Second Legion. She advanced to the rank of Command Sergeant and earned many awards, including the Army Betterment Award, later reclassified to the Army Medal of Progress, for her new design for squads and her mentoring programme.

The Hellhounds had earned a positive reputation and were often chosen to participate in top priority missions. The Command Sergeant was involved in many operations, like the famous liberation of M`buh from the New Republic and Operation Sneak Peak, a mission that went terribly wrong after the Army was forced to retreat when a volcano erupted and destroyed both the Imperial camp and the target of the operation.

Breakdown

But as they say, nothing lasts forever. The legion was starting to slow down when Major Rall was forced to retire for a few weeks and Lieutenant Basir was revealed to be a Sith and decided to leave the Army to train in the ways of the Force. Elvira had to run the legion by herself and if it weren't for General L'Annan stepping in as temporary Commanding Officer, she would have collapsed under the pressure. Luckily, a replacement for Major Rall was soon found. Lieutenant Beckhart, an experienced officer who had just returned to the Army, became the new Commanding Officer. He came to Elvira with the offer of making her his second-in-command, which she of course accepted. But only a day later, it was suddenly announced that Euna Miriel had returned to active duty and would get the Executive Officer position instead, as was decided by Army Command. Despite having worked together with Euna before, Elvira was filled with jealousy and frustration. After having waited so long to become Executive Officer and having led the Legion on her own for some time, she felt entitled to the position, but the opportunity she dreamt of was snatched away right before her eyes. The inability to become a commissioned officer due to the structural flaws of SOCS, the Imperial school for officers, only added to the frustrations of the legion's former rising star.

Beckhart managed to make the Hellhounds efficient again and also succeeded in keeping Elvira in check for a while, but secretly the Legion Adjutant made plans to leave the legion and pursue a different career. Major Rall returned earlier than expected and Beckhart willingly handed over command of the Hellhounds to him again, becoming the Chief Medical Officer of the Army instead. Rall's return soothed Elvira slightly and everything seemed to be back to normal.

A few days later, however, Elvira was contacted by Califf D`Troit, Commander of the First Legion and Army Adjutant, explaining to her that his command staff needed to be replaced. He offered her the chance to become his Legion Adjutant and Elvira, mainly to help the First Legion, but secretly also because of her jealousy, accepted and transferred to the Immortals. There, she prospered once more and quickly helped turn the legion around. One morning, Elvira received a message on her datapad from Grand Moff Orphaea Imperium, who she sometimes had conversations with. He had rerouted many of the Empire's assets and caused chaos on many planets under the control of the Empire, convincing them to support his cause. His demands were simple: Emperor Vodo Bonias had to abdicate and crown his Executor, Thomas Cherokee, the new Emperor. Wishing to avoid a new long-lasting civil war and keep the Empire intact, the Emperor temporarily stepped down and placed Cherokee on the throne, intending to double-cross Imperium as soon as the peace had returned. Several members of the Inner Circle saw this as a great opportunity and rallied behind Cherokee however, confirming him as the new Emperor, the first in many years. Along with the new Emperor, a new Military Commanding Officer was appointed. Lord Admiral Seele, an experienced and famous Imperial, began to reform the entire military and Califf and Elvira worked together to make sure the legion was prepared.

After waiting for so long, Major D`Troit promoted Elvira to the rank of Second Lieutenant, and due to the Lord Admiral's reforms, she was immediately promoted to First Lieutenant a couple days later. But more importantly, he also made the new Lieutenant his Executive officer. Her time as XO wouldn't last long however. They brought Dragomir Kies on board as the new Adjutant and it was Elvira's duty to train him to replace her in the future. She had decided it was time to head in a new direction, so the inexperienced but hard-working Kies would have to take her place. After leading one last mission, Elvira requested her transfer and it was accepted.

A Life of Secrecy

It is unknown how long Elvira has been working for Intelligence and nobody knows what exactly she does. She intends to keep it that way.
