Rebel Alliance Ranks and Benefits

A Rebel’s progression through the ranks is a combination of having the right skills, length of service, mission record, and, of course, sleeping with the right people (Mon Mothma). The skill requirements are listed next to the rank title.

A character of a certain rank possesses the top two abilities listed, but must choose which of those two abilities to “ingrain” and keep forever when being promoted to the next rank. The bottom two abilities are rank specializations. A character can choose and ingrain one of these bottom abilities in their current rank or a lesser rank instead of being promoted to the next rank.
