Description: Judder Page was a Human male from Corulag who throughout his life served as a commando in the Galactic Empire, Rebel Alliance, New Republic, and Galactic Alliance. He was a nondescript-looking man who could easily blend into any crowd, traits that served him well on many missions that required stealth. Page was born to a wealthy Imperial senator and spent his youth training himself in various combat techniques before being sent to the Imperial Academy. After graduating with honors, Page briefly served in the Imperial Army, but had no love for the Empire and quickly defected to the Rebellion after hearing a passionate speech given by the Rebel leader Leia Organa to the Council of Galactic Rights. In his first years as a Rebel, Page served on the ground at the Battles of Hoth and Endor. Following the latter battle, he was given command of the Katarn Commandos, and he trained them to be an irregular and independent unit that was given a great deal of freedom in completing its mission objectives.
Personality and traits
Judder Page grew up idolizing the Jedi Knights of the Old Republic and the brave qualities that they embodied, despising both his father and his instructors in the Imperial Academy for not possessing those traits. Although he hated the Empire, Page was an idealistic youth and took advantage of their training programs to hone his skills as a commando, eventually realizing that he could use those skills against the Empire by joining the Rebel Alliance. He was eager to bring the fight to the Empire, and shortly after his defection, General Crix Madine expected him to go far in the Alliance Military. When Han Solo selected Page to join his Endor strike team, it was due to Page's loyalty, dedication, resourcefulness, and ability to devise creative situations, all demonstrated during the Alliance's time on Hoth.
Page was a very effective commando throughout his life, owing to his nondescript physical appearance, his many talents, and his leadership ability. After spending his youth training himself in various combat and defensive techniques and then going on to learn the theories of planetfall combat from the Empire's best teachers, he served in the Empire and the Rebel Alliance before becoming one of the New Republic's best soldiers. During his time with the New Republic, Page was considered a legend of Alliance Special Forces. Along with everyone who served under him in his commando unit, he had a wide range of specialties, including urban combat and heavy weapons. With a well-rounded background in advanced combat and survival training, he was a crack shot and was proficient in hand-to-hand combat. Page was also trained in the use of armor but could easily operate without it. He was a very versatile soldier, and was considered one of the New Republic's elite troopers.
Such was New Republic High Command's confidence in Page that they allowed his commando unit a great deal of freedom and autonomy in completing their missions; he and his team would often disappear into the field for weeks or months at a time. The commandos, taught by Page, were noted for their intense training, cold efficiency, and utter professionalism, and by 9 ABY were considered, along with Kapp Dendo's Commando Team One, to be one of the two best soldier units in the New Republic. By 29 ABY, Page was considered a hero on his homeworld of Corulag, and his rescue from a Yuuzhan Vong internment camp inspired resistance forces on Corulag to help the Galactic Alliance liberate the planet. Galactic Alliance High Command believed him to be influential enough throughout the galaxy that his rescue could persuade planetary sectors on the verge of acquiescing to the invading Yuuzhan Vong to reconsider.
Page was of medium height and a medium build, unremarkable looking and able to blend easily into any crowd. He was nondescript to the point that one could nearly forget what he looked like a mere moment after meeting him. This bland, unmemorable appearance served him well on many covert missions, and he often disguised himself as a non-Human while in the field. Page passed his talent for stealth on to the members of his commando team, who prided themselves on staying out of sight. Over the years, his leadership inspired them to become even more independent of New Republic High Command than they initially were. Shortly before the end of the Yuuzhan Vong War, Page took on a leadership role at the enemy prison where he was incarcerated. He was respected by the other prisoners, and was able to give them orders. The prisoners and one of the Yuuzhan Vong guards believed that a force of ten thousand warriors like Page could win the war for the Galactic Alliance.
While on missions, Page was able to think on his feet and alter plans based on new and unexpected factors, adapting to various situations very well. He was able to learn the raspy and guttural Yuuzhan Vong language within two months. Although he was usually wary of traps laid by his enemies, Page was not considered overcautious and was glad to accept any luck that came his way. He displayed courage in the field and often relied on skill and ingenuity to accomplish missions. He was always very determined to do so; when Moff Sarne escaped from Kal'Shebbol with advanced DarkStryder weaponry, Page was firm in his convictions that the Moff needed to be tracked down, and was willing to crew the pursuing Farstar with civilians, including people with suspicious gaps in their employment history.
Page knew that people working under him sometimes had to die in order for a mission to be completed; such was the price of leadership and command. He warned his commandos not to take the deaths of their friends personally, else they would get killed too. Nevertheless, Page did not like seeing his own friends die, and while at Selvaris would gladly have risked his life in order to see any of the other prisoners live another day. He called on Malik Carr, the prison camp's overseer, to punish him personally when Carr discovered that four prisoners had escaped, and insisted on being the first prisoner to jump into the immolation pit in which Carr had sentenced fifty of them to die. When a Galactic Alliance strike force rescued Page and captured Carr, Page allowed the Yuuzhan Vong commander to survive, but felt that he would likely kill him the next time they met. Page saw many deaths throughout his career, and felt that many of his campaigns had happened at the expense of too many lives. He was not only confident in and trustful of the commandos on his team, but was fond of some of them as well. He made many other friends in the military, and when Wedge Antilles believed him dead after Operation: Trinity, the general took it as a hard blow.
Despite his stature as one of the New Republic's best soldiers, Page was modest and respectful to superior officers. He turned down many offers of promotion from his rank of lieutenant as a sign of humility and to avoid playing the game of politics. His reluctance was also inspired by Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, both of whom he believed had no use for ranks; Page was a great admirer of Skywalker, Solo, and Leia Organa Solo, known colloquially as the Heroes of Yavin. In 9 ABY, Page finally accepted a promotion to captain, but did so grudgingly. While in the clutches of the Yuuzhan Vong, Page helped abolish all previous notions of rank among the prisoners of war and wore his filthy prison uniform proudly. He insisted that the other prisoners eat meals before him, but the respect that they had for he and Pash Cracken prompted them to serve the two first.
