The Phoenix Unit
The Phoenix Unit is a special taskforce, founded by a group of Jedi, with the sole purpose of combating the Empire much closely and defending the weakened Republic. Bringing together both special forces and Jedi, The Unit is based on Coruscant and works to raise the Republic from the ashes, back to its former glory.
The founders of The Phoenix Unit originated from a small branch of the Jedi Order. After seeing the damage done by the unyielding Empire, the group of Jedi demanded change from the Jedi Council so that the Order may combat the Republic's enemies more effectively. However, the old council, stuck in their ways and oblivious to the need for adaptation, refused their request and accused the Jedi as traitors. With that they were exiled from the Order. But this did not stop the strong-willed comrades. They quickly gathered a contraband of dedicated heroes of the Republic and created The Phoenix Unit.
With Jedi and Soldiers working together as equals, they hope restore hope to the people of the Republic and strike back at the Empire. A new order within the Unit is emerging. A new evolution of Jedi.
