Molly is the elder of twin girls born to Dalsuna Losoda and Tag Rendar approximately eight years after the Battle of Yavin. She was recruited at sixteen into New Republic Intelligence and assigned to Sector 27, a region her mother once commanded for Intelligence.
The second child of New Republic officers Dalsuna Losoda and Tag Rendar, Molly was born on Xenen, the location of her mother’s posting at the time. She was raised largely on Xenen in close contact with her extended family including the Bridger clan. Her cousins were more like brothers to her during her youth and this has persisted as they all approach and enter adulthood.
In the wake of the death of her “uncle,” Jaq Pellman, Molly and her siblings witnessed their mother become increasingly withdrawn for a time leading up to the birth of the youngest Losoda, Jaq. The event had a deeper effect on Corsem, Molly’s older brother, than it did on either her or her twin sister, Linda.
Molly earned high marks in school and displays the same Force talents possessed by her parents, though she chooses to use hers rarely, often only in relation to her work.
Molly wears her dark brown hair short. She is taller than her mother, standing approximately 5’4″ and has indigo eyes. She has a lean, athletic build suited to fieldwork with Intelligence.
Recruited approximately one year before the beginning of conflicts with the Vong, Molly had been assigned to monitor activity of organized crime syndicates in the Kartuiin Sector by Colonel Alek Cannele. Her training for this particular sort of mission came from Carmen Cannele, the Colonel’s sister. Her cover was blown on Wayfarer station and she was extracted by Captain Cay Bel Iblis and Xander Drake. Her cover identity comprimised, Molly was reassigned to liaise aboard the Legacy as their shipboard intelligence officer. This remains her current assignment.
Alek Cannele is the current Sector Chief for New Republic Intelligence for Sector 27 and is the husband of Tegan Dargan-Cannele, governor of the Kartuiin Sector.
Born the son of Davron and Jaeneve Cannele approximately eleven years before the Battle of Yavin, Alek’s childhood was anything but normal. When Alek was nine, Davron was killed by forces sent by the Empire in search of Jaeneve, a Force-sensitive ex-soldier with a knack for getting into trouble. Alek and his younger sister, Carmen, were taken into Imperial custody and eventually came to the Imperial court, where they were given into the care of Emperor’s Hand Link Shaner. It was at her knee that Alek first learned to use the Force, though her sole responsibility for that did not last.
While Carmen escaped after a far briefer captivity than her brother, eventually finding her way to the Rebellion and her mother, Alek remained as part of the Imperial court for several more years. During this time, he encountered Jeffery Taleisin, with whom he soon developed a mutal trust. Much of Alek’s more advanced training in the ways of the Force came from Jeffery prior to the other man’s escape from Imperial custody in the company of Ulic Taliesin, a Corellian Jedi.
It was shortly before the Battle of Hoth that Alek Cannele was removed from Imperial control, captured by elements of Ice Squadron, under the command of then-Captain Kingston Taylor. Jeffery Taleisin renewed his training of the young man, who was duly inducted into the shadow-world of spies and intelligence-gathering after his loyalties solidified. Largely, his work was of little consequence until nearly four years after the Battle of Endor, when he was called upon to undertake a deep cover operation. The operation took him to Kartuiin, the heart of Sector 27. The end result of his mission was his courtship of and eventual marriage to Tegan Dargan, at the time a virtual prisoner of the gubernatorial mansion on Kartuiin.
Tag Rendar was largely responsible for a great deal of Alek’s intelligence training and he was viewed for quite a long time as something of a protege of hers. Several years after her departure from the Sector Chief’s chair, Alek stepped in to fill her shoes and has served as the Sector Chief for several years.
