Dawn of Defiance
The Alderaanian Resistance was an anti-Imperial resistance movement, led by Bail Organa on Alderaan during the early years of the New Order.
Palpatine’s Declaration of a New Order at the end of the Clone Wars alarmed Bail Organa along with many other members of the Galactic Senate. On the advice of Padmé Amidala, Organa decided against openly opposing the newly crowned Emperor and, instead, maintained the illusion of being a loyal senator, giving him access to information that would be vital to any resistance movement.
On his homeworld of Alderaan, Organa began recruiting others to his cause, such as the Caamasi Jedi, Ylenic It’kla, and the noblewoman, Lady Alya Aldrete and her smuggling ring. He also ensured that his adopted daughters, Leia and Winter, were given intelligence training. Though Alderaan had abandoned their military forces in the wake of the Clone Wars and was now philosophically opposed to the concept of armed resistance, Organa recognized the importance of other fledgling resistance movements such as the Nizon resistance and Corellian Resistance and set about providing non-combatant support, including funding, technical expertise and intelligence gathered by his group.
