Biography

About

Early Life

Robert was born to Charles and Tasha Decca on Year -6 Day 22. Much of his past is still a mystery due to the nature of his childhood. Robert was never close to his parents. His mother was a cruel and manipulating person, his father essentially a con artist, doing what he could to survive. During his teens years, Robert's father was imprisoned for failing to pay taxes to the local Imperial government. Soon after his mother abandoned him to be with a rich Coruscnati man. Robert was all alone on Hapes. However he was used to looking after himself.

It was during that time he caught the eye of someone who would soon be important to Robert. This woman was a kind person who took pity on Robert's situation. She offered him a place to stay and even some work. The woman began teaching Robert about the galaxy, about people, and unbeknownst to Robert, she taught him Imperials ideals. She became a mentor to him, almost a mother even. Robert absorbed all the knowledge he was given by this women and soon he began putting it into practice as the woman asked him to go to certain locations and observe the habits of certain people and report back to her. Over the months Robert would be given more work to do and eventually this woman revealed herself to be an Agent for Imperial Intelligence. This agent would continue to raise Robert as her own son and also train him for a future mission which became known as Operation Greenhorn.


Personality

Robert has always been a man of honor and integrity as well as having a strong sense of duty to his government which he undertakes with great pride. He is an advent fan of Imperial law and protocol. He believes protocol to be an important part of military discipline and showing respect for superior officers. However he is not perfect and has been reprimanded a few times when he has erred, but has taken any reprimands with acknowledgement and a mindset of not making the same mistake twice. When not on duty Robert is quite social and easy going.

Throughout his life Robert has known and seen injustice. He saw first hand the corruption of the so called Galactic Alliance. He sees clearly what is wrong and what is right. This sense of justice is another driving force in Robert's determination to assist the Empire in bringing order to the galaxy. He is easily distressed when confronted with injustice or witnesses it happen to someone else however he normally won't fight it head on, knowing it to be futile in most situations, instead he remains calm and tries to correct the balance of injustice by being a loyal soldier in the Empire.

" Laws change depending on who's making them, but justice is justice."
— Robert Decca


A major part of Robert's live is purpose. He believes his life to be meaningless and uneventful without a higher purpose. Currently he believes serving in the Empire even at a low level is enough to give him a greater purpose though is looking forward towards the day he can serve in a higher capacity for the betterment of the Empire.

" Happiness is not gained through serving yourself, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose."
— Robert Decca


The Imperial Intelligence

Pre-Operation

Details of how Robert got involved with the Bureau of Operations is unknown, however it is assumed his caretaker and mentor at the time, the unknown female agent, mentioned his name to someone in II. The only known fact is that he was selected personally by then-Bureau Chief Elvira Falston.

Operation Greenhorn

The New Republic

Early in Year 13 Robert joined the New Republic. After taking an aptitude test it was decided that based on his operational computer skills he was to placed in the Republic's ship building factory, Incom Corporation. After a short term Robert was appointed Director of Prospecting for Incom. However things turned sour quick when Robert began realizing how corrupt the Republic really was. Seeing disorder, leaders bickering and slandering each other in public and corruption run amuck made Robert very uneasy to the point of him resigning from Incom Corporation and abandoning his Republic citizenship.

The Falleen Federation (Work-in-progress)

Military Portrait of Lt. Commander Decca


Still wishing to carry out his mission, Robert applied for citizenship in the Falleen Federation as well as enlisting in the Falleen Army at the rank of Acting Lieutenant, a senior non-commissioned rank. Within the first few months Robert befriended Deputy Director of the Federation Intelligence Bureau, Sabo Magus. The two would work together closely during the duration of Sabo's service to the Federation.

During the Fiefdom Program Robert was appointed as Governor of the Rintonne System, under the jurisdiction of Sabo Magus, Governor of the Lambda Sector. Robert worked on new city designs aimed to balance employment rates, increasing affordable housing for the workers, and provide entertainment to keep the citizens happy. However the Fiefdom Program would come to an end after the Falleen economy took a turn for the worst and the central government was forced to take direct control of systems.

The Award

It was during this time that Robert was sent a holocommunication being awarded a Letter of Commendation by then Director Inwe Ventidius for his work, the holomail read as follows:

"Thank you for your continued and imperative service to the Galactic Empire. It is an honor to be able to work with individuals who demonstrate such high and consistent loyalty to the Imperial cause. "

The exact reason for the award is still classified.

The Exiled Rangers

Early in Year 14 then leader of the Federation, King Rick Farlander had a meeting with Sabo about gathering intel through a group disguised as a neutral mercenary faction. Rick Farlander transferred 40 million credits from the Royal Treasury and gave to Sabo to start the faction. The faction, in theory, was suppose to operate as an external extension of the Federation Intelligence Bureau, without the ties to the Federation. Robert, who by then was already an advisor to Sabo, was asked to join him in the faction and on day 62 he retired from the Federation and joined Exiled Rangers, his rank transferring over to Lieutenant. Robert worked closely with Sabo on the organization and structure of the group as it became clear Sabo was not very organized and things were already in a state of disarray. Robert implemented basic structure of three Directorates: Operations, Analysis and Engineering, he also wrote protocols and procedures regarding intel operations. For his continued work and support Sabo appointed Robert as Director of Analysis. Varro Belle, a Major in the Fallen Army would later join as Director of Operations.

Tension soon arouse between Sabo and the King when the King declined monetary support for the group, citing a failing economy that had put a burden on the Treasury, however other support would be given such as ships and weapons. Sabo became angered and even mentally unstable. Robert was often interrupted while working to hear Sabo complain about the King's refusal for help and even mention breaking away from the Federation. At that point Robert knew Sabo was mentally unfit for command and also incompetent when it came to intelligence work as he had a delusional understanding of how it all worked in practice. He could not stay and be branded a traitor with Sabo so he contacted then Regent Jado Du`rik to explain what was going on and reaffirmed his loyalties to the Federation then requested to rejoin the Federation and go back to active duty in the military.

Sabo soon deserted his duty to the Federation, taking the faction with him that was bought with Federation credits. Robert did not hear from him after that. But soon after Exiled Rangers dissolved and was no more.

The Return (Work-in-progress)

Robert returned to active duty in the Falleen Army at the rank of Lieutenant. At this point the Derra War was beginning and Robert was tasked with training soldiers before their deployment. It was not long before he found himself talking with the FIB Director, Ridar Riggs. Both had been disappointed with Sabo's desertion but knew it was probably for the best. Without the aide of a Deputy Director, Ridar began to rely on Robert for security advice and information regarding people of suspicion or unknown history. Robert would end up working a lot with Ridar, without officially being recognized as an agent of the Bureau. He introduced new security protocols, created a central database of all Falleen active service members including detailed information, and performed weekly communications checks ensuring the safety of the Federation.

Robert enjoyed serving in the Federation however as time went on he felt the leaders were not noticing the work he was doing to better the Federation and ultimately he began to feel alienated from his peers. The Executive court repeatedly denied the FIB Director's recommendation that Robert be transferred officially to the Bureau. However that was only the final straw, Robert had always wished to see higher protocol enforced in the military and certain standards defined and enforced


The Escape (Work-in-progress)

Late in Year 14 Robert resigned as Lieutenant Commander of the Falleen Protection Force while aboard his personal ship. A few days later he had arrived at Coruscant and turned himself over to agents of the Imperial Security Bureau stating he wished to defect to Galactic Empire. After being detained in a classified ISB facility for a three day debriefing, he was finally allowed to enlist in the Empire.

The Imperial Academy

In Year 14 Robert enrolled in the Imperial Academy. He was assigned to the Commandant, Master Engineer Krakonico Petermind. Through diligent studying Robert passed the basic training course with an average of 96.79% and on Day 248 he graduated with honors and was enlisted in the Imperial Army at the rank of Corporal.

The Imperial Army (Work-in-progress)

In Year 15 day 57 Robert was send a holomail from Legion Command. It was an address to the Brigade. At the end of the message Robert was acknowledged for his hard work and granted a promotion to Captain:

"I would like to take this time to point the limelight on one Trooper in-particular.

This trooper has recently returned to us from leave and has been constantly active since and aided not only the Brigade but the Empire in general covering a plethora of tasks that benefit us all. For his diligence it brings me great pleasure to announce that from this 57th day in the 15th year of Imperial light Robert Decca shall be raised to the rank of Captain and will receive all privileges due to his rank."

The Commission (Work-in-progress)

The Declassification (Work-in-progress)

During the Imperial Intelligence report during the January Monthly Imperial Monthly, Director Elvira Falston revealed that Robert had been an Agent working for Imperial Intelligence during his time in the Galactic Alliance:

"Finally, I'd like to announce the declassification of [REDACTED], which took place [REDACTED], the succesful infiltration of the [REDACTED] where we gathered a lot of valuable information on this former member of the [REDACTED]. Lieutenant Robert Decca risked his life to get us this information and I am proud to finally grant him the awards he earned while undercover. I hereby grant him the CIIA, IISA - One Year and a Letter of Commendation. Congratulations."

The Imperial Archives

While serving in the Army; Robert began working on a major clean up of Imperial Archives. It was during this time Lord Daelis Stanov, current Director of IIS, noticed Robert's efforts and offered him a job as Manager of the Archives after being approved by the Grand Vizier.

A New Love

For the longest time Robert has always considered himself married to the Empire, dedicated solely to it, and due to the nature of his former job as an undercover agent he was never able to forge romantic relationships. However while visiting the Imperial Academy campus he met a young male recruit. Connor Laski was his name. Robert was instantly enamored with the man and so he introduced himself and engaged in conversation with the young student. It was love at first sight. Robert was instantly taken with the young man's drive, ambition and love for order. In some ways Connor was like himself. Robert would begin to mentor this man and help him to graduate. After Connor was directly commissioned to the Army, Robert began seeing him more and eventually the two became partners.

Portrait

In Year 15 Robert was presented with a hand-painted portrait of himself as a surprise by his friend, Malpharius Caine.

"I wanted to show class. Excellence and class. Your ability to maintain both, setting you apart but you are never alone." — Malpharius' description of the portrait.
