Adhemar is a Human male from the Palace District of Coruscant. He went on to join the Rebel Alliance (and eventually the New Republic) as a starfighter pilot.

History

Adhemar Voltin was born on Coruscant during the year 22 BBY to Baron and Baroness Voltin, amongst the controversy surrounding the beginning of the Clone Wars. When he was 13 years of age (9 BBY), his parents were involved in a high-altitude speeder accident, and died shortly thereafter. He and his younger brother, Salaban, were placed in an Imperial sponsored orphanage while the Empire took control of the family assets.

At the age of 16, he escaped from the orphanage with his brother. They found the warehouse where their family assets were being held via a simple holonet search, and broke in to find what was left of their parents' possessions. They found a number of valuable objects in the warehouse, including a ship. Their father had maintained a civilianized version of a Corellian Gunship for his use during business. The brothers loaded the ship's cargo spaces with as much of the family's valuables with the intention of flying the ship off-planet. Unfortunately, Adhemar had not received any flight training at this point. Fortunately, there were a few droids on the bridge able to pilot the ship. They ordered the droids to fly the ship to to its most recent off-world destination which, for some unknown reason, was Mos Eisley on the planet Tatooine. Upon arrival, the brothers did their best to sell off the valuables they brought with them, including the ship they arrived in. Once this was accomplished, they split the money and decided to go their own separate ways.

For a time, Adhemar drifted around Mos Eisley picking up odd jobs until he found a crew position on a freighter bound for Naboo. He took the job and worked his way to Naboo, where he attempted to settle down in the small city of Moenia. By this time (2 BBY) rumors of a Rebellion were spreading, especially in the liberal city of Moenia. It was there that Adhemar joined what was to become the Alliance Starfighter Corps as part of a training unit known as Vortex Squadron. The unit flew the only ships available to them at the time, which were Z-95s and Y-wings. Once he completed the required training, he was transferred to a small resistance unit on Averam. There, he gained notoriety by participating in daring raids on Imperial convoys bound for Coruscant. It was here that he started using his family title of Baron as his call sign. He remained stationed there until shortly after the Battle of Yavin.

After the Rebellion's victory at the Battle of Yavin, the brash young Voltin was selected to be part of a new unit stationed on the moon of Naboo, Rori. Here, he joined Sabre squadron and flew with famous Alliance Aces such as Li Coden, Leaph Chausew, and Halyn Lance. He quickly rose through the ranks to eventually command all the space forces in the area for a short time, during which he set up the defection of an Imperial pilot, Bhramzee Murteik. He was relieved of this command due to insubordination to Alliance High Command. This lead to Adhemar being dishonorably discharged from the Starfighter Corps altogether.

However, the discharge was a cleverly disguised ruse to transfer Adhemar to Alliance Intelligence. With them he led a task force based in the Moddell Sector aboard an old Victory-class Star Destroyer renamed the Jesse. Their mission was to infiltrate Imperial-held planets in the Moddell sector in order to form and train resistance movements. This forced the local Imperial forces to focus their attention at home, and not on the Alliance ships operating in the area. He lead this task force successfully until shortly after the Battle of Endor.

After the Battle of Endor, he continued to fly missions for Alliance Intelligence. The majority of his work included scouting Imperial-held systems for weaknesses. Through his intelligence gathering efforts (along with others), the Alliance was able to liberate dozens of systems as the Empire disintigrated.

He was then transferred back to the Starfighter Corps to support the New Republic's starfighter squadrons in the Greeop system towards the end of 7 ABY, after the capture of Coruscant. He served with the Intrepid Battle Group as part of Wildcard Squadron, along with piloting TIE's for more clandestine missions as part of the Retribution Wing. During a reconnaissance mission in Imperial territory, his fighter was damaged and he was forced to abandon it. He was close to dead when he was retrieved by the support shuttle that his wingmates called in. This incident resulted in an extended stay in the medical center at Blerthmore. During the fateful Battle of Blerthmore, he was still confined to his quarters pending medical clearance for flight status. Upon his return to active duty, he was assigned to the recently formed Vigilance Starfighter Group. Within months of his return he was transferred to the Redemption Fleet to serve as the Executive Officer. He served in this capacity until a more qualified officer could takes the reigns and then returned to the VSG as part of Red Dragon Squadron.

As for his physical appearance, he is pale skinned with a small amount of freckles around his cheeks. His eyes are mostly a grey color with specks of blue. His hair is dyed white and drawn back into a ponytail that extends just below his shoulders. He also has a similarly dyed goatee which appears to be very finely groomed. He is considered short by human standards at 1.6 meters in height.

Since his days in the Rebellion, he has kept a heavily modified YT-2000, dubbed the Peregrine, for his personal use and special missions.

Personality

Adhemar, unlike his younger brother, retained his Coruscanti accent, and the slightly snobbish demeanor that comes with the family title. Though, while he may seem like he distances himself from people, he is in fact fiercely loyal to anyone whom he considers a friend or wingmate.

Behind the Scenes

Adhemar, first joined the Rebel Squadrons in 2005 to participate in the XWA ITODs with the IBG. He would also participate briefly in the TIE Fighter ITODs with the R2W. One day while bored between ITOD missions he decided to become involved in SWG, and eventually the Vanguard Fleet. This consumed his much of his time for the next year or so. Then, after an extended break he came back to the ranks of the regular RS and started flying XWA for the VSG. In SWG, the character named Ad'hemar Voltin is a level 90 Officer and a Rebel Ace Pilot.
