Description: Anto Kreegyr was a human male militant who was active during the reign of the Galactic Empire, the successor state to the Galactic Republic. During the Clone Wars, a pan-galactic war between the Republic and its splinter state, the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Kreegyr was allied with the latter. Surviving the war's end, which followed the Republic's reorganization into the Empire, the militant became the leader of a rebel organization by the time of 5 BBY, and eventually came into contact with Luthen Rael, the leader of a larger rebel network.
That year, Kreegyr had planned an attack on the Imperial power station on Spellhaus. Before launching the attack, a meeting between the former Separatist and Saw Gerrera, the leader of the Partisan rebel group, was attempted to be arranged by Rael, though this was unsuccessful due to Saw's history with the Confederacy. Not long after, Kreegyr's attack was discovered by the Imperial Security Bureau, following their capture of a pilot associated with his group. As a result, as well as his contact with Rael, the ISB Supervisor Dedra Meero desired Kreegyr's capture to uncover Rael's identity, who had been identified as "Axis" by Meero. However, Kreegyr was later killed by the Empire shortly after launching his attack on Spellhaus, preventing Rael's discovery.
A former Separatist
During the final years of the Galactic Republic, amid the Clone Wars, a pan-galactic war between the Republic and its splinter state, the Confederacy of Independent Systems that took place between 22 BBY and 19 BBY, the human male militant known as Anto Kreegyr was an associate of the Confederacy. In 19 BBY, the war was brought to a decisive and swift end, in which the Confederacy had collapsed following the deaths of its leaders on the planet Mustafar. At the same time, with Kreegyr surviving the Confederacy's destruction, the Republic was reorganized into the Galactic Empire by Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine, thereby declaring himself the Galactic Emperor and ruler of the galaxy.
Later in the Empire's reign, by 5 BBY, the former Separatist served as the leader of his own rebel organization, consisting of at least thirty, excluding himself, or fifty men. By that time, following a decisive heist on the planet Aldhani, Kreegyr had been probing an Imperial power station located on Spellhaus, locating a weakness in its defenses in preparation for his attack against it to destroy the station. In that time, Kreegyr had come into contact with Luthen Rael, the leader of a larger rebel network working to unite the various rebel organizations under a single banner, whom the Separatist had met at some point and unknowingly came into the same area with. Aware of Kreegyr's plan, Rael traveled to the planet Segra Milo in order to recruit Partisan leader Saw Gerrera into the attack, proposing that the Onderonian meet with the former Separatist and work together to provide him aerial support for his mission, which Rael sought from the Partisans. Gerrera, however, who derided Kreegyr as an ox; slow and stupid, refused to risk the lives of his forces for the attack, thereby rejecting Rael's offer into working with Kreegyr and joining the wider fight against the Empire, while also denouncing the man as a separatist and claiming that he was lost alongside several other rebel organizations, such as the cell of neo-Republican Maya Pei, the Ghorman front, Partisan alliance, Sectorists, human cultists and galaxy partitionists.
A pilot captured
Several days later, a pilot affiliated with Kreegyr's organization, utilizing an Imperial masking unit stolen in 6 BBY from the naval facility in Lozash, traveled solely aboard a GPE 7000 transport to the Ring of Kafrene trading outpost. While on route to Kafrene, however, the pilot was detected by the Empire during a routine customs check on random happenstance. Vanishing upon displaying an Imperial-listed profile, without witnesses to verify, the Empire thought the situation to be unusual and pursued him, capturing the pilot in process. After taking the pilot into custody, he was interrogated by Imperial Security Bureau Supervisor Dedra Meero and Doctor Gorst aboard a destroyer near Steergard, in which he revealed that Kreegyr had plans for a raid on the Spellhaus power station, but had also promised that the rebel leader had not been alerted to his capture, assuming that he would be able to flee.
Following the interview, the pilot's capture and Kreegyr's planned raid were reported by Meero and her assistant, Attendant Heert, to Major Partagaz during a meeting with the ISB board of other supervisors. During the meeting, the ISB believed that Kreegyr was unaware of the pilot's loss to the Empire but understood that the pilot's absence would be realized soon, forcing them to formulate an accident with the starship in order to leave Kreegyr unalert and have him continue his plan. In response, Meero recommended that the transport be tampered and kill the pilot aboard the cockpit, sending it adrift to be towed by Kafrene Rescue Salvage without trace to the ISB's involvement. While Lieutenant Meero went about her assignment, Partagaz proceeded to speak with Imperial Military's intelligence branch about Spellhaus and the power station, to prepare a trap for Kreegyr's coming raid.
With the ISB proceeding with their plan, the pilot was executed and place aboard the cockpit of the GPE 7000, sending it towards Kafrene and awaiting development. Detected by Kafrene Rescue Salvage sometime later, the rescue organization discovered and reported that the transport was unresponsive, with the rebel pilot appearing frozen following a hydraulic failure upon hyperspace re-entry. Falling into the Empire's trap, while Kafrene Rescue Salvage towed the transport into the trading outpost, Kreegyr's group had requested a landing bay on Kafrene, catching the Empire's attention. Watching from the Imperial capital world of Coruscant, ISB Supervisor Lonni Jung suggested to Partagaz that the ISB proceed as they normally would, observing the situation due the pilot's dead state but feigning their interest to prevent Kreegyr from growing suspicious under the assumption he was watching, with Partagaz agreeing.
A worthwhile decision
As the security bureau and its supervisors observed the situation at Jung's recommendation, with several ISB officials creating files on Kreegyr and his group, including Supervisor Blevin, the Imperial supervisor traveled to the lower levels of the Imperial capital world of Coruscant. While aboard a turbolift, the disguised Jungâ€”truly a double agent working for the Rebellionâ€”began to speak with Rael regarding the situation, pressing the buttons for level 215 in case of their meeting being a trap. Warning the rebel leader about Supervisor Meero, he explained that she has been searching for Rael, whom the Empire referred to as "Axis," believing that he was working to create a larger network of rebel cells. Pleased with Meero's efforts to discover Rael, the rebel leader instructed the Imperial to encourage her behavior to waste further time.
Revealing additional information, Jung explained that Meero had also recently captured a pilot from Kreegyr's group. Passing that the security bureau executed him and staged an accident with his transport, the rebel spy also stated that they were aware of Kreegyr's planned assault on the Spellhaus power station and that the Empire would be awaiting his attack, with Rael coming to understand that if Kreegyr did not follow through, the security bureau would realize something had gone awry, revealing Jung's duplicity. Although the entire group of fifty men would be wiped out, despite Jung's yearning for Kreegyr to be warned, Rael expressed that the rebel spy was worth more than all fifty men combined and that warning them would destroy his work to establish a unified rebellion. To that end, Rael refused to warn Kreegyr, sacrificing his entire group to protect Jung and prevent the ISB from discovering him as a leak in Imperial security.
Soon afterwards, following the passing of Maarva Andor on the planet Ferrix, the Empire had still sought to discover Axis' real name and identity. Seeking further answers, the Ferrixian resident Bix Caleen, who had been detained in the Empire's makeshift headquarters, was brought into the command center where she was questioned by ISB attendant Corv. Expecting an honest answer from Caleen, threatening to bring Doctor Gorst back if she was lying, Corv displayed an image of Kreegyr to the captive woman, and asked her if the man was both Axis and the one whom she introduced to the wanted Cassian Andor. Breaking down in the process, the Empire was unable to connect Kreegyr as Axis' identity and continued their search.
Playing the long game
Not long after being alerted by Jung, Rael once again traveled to Segra Milo to speak with Gerrera. Discovering that the Partisans were willing to provide their support in the attack, giving aerial power and information, while also desiring to loot the eastern garrison without tactical orders from anyone, Rael explained that Gerrera was late in responding and refused to tell Kreegyr he had their support, as he was to leave the next day. Confused after his former eagerness for Partisan support, the rebel leader informed the Onderonian that Kreegyr and his forces were compromised; the ISB had discovered his plans and set a trap for him. Understanding the desire to sacrifice Kreegyr, unknowingly to protect Jung from detection, Gerrera discerned that Rael either had a source working for him in the ISB or that the rebel was secretly an Imperial spy, but that Kreegyr was unaware of that the ISB was waiting for him. As Rael stated the situation was unideal for the two of them, the Partisan wondered if the rebel leader believed that Kreegyr was worth losing, to which Rael told him that due to his limited knowledge of who he was, and their communication through special radios, the Separatist was unable to inflict damage to the rebellion unlike Gerrera.
Becoming paranoid, the Onderonian discerned that Rael had sources all over; one within the ISB, one with Kreegyr and possibly one with the Partisans. Demanding their identity, Rael falsely pointed out Benthic as his source, who argued in response only for the rebel to take the Tognath's blaster and hold Gerrera at gunpoint. Ordering him to listen, with the decision to engage being his alone, Rael stated that the ISB would regard themselves as invincible if Kreegyr were eliminated and would have no reason to suspect a spy, with the rebel groups being able to operate with little concerns. However, he then expressed that if they alernatively chose to inform Kreegyr and had him abandon the attack, the Empire would not trust anything and would be wary of a breach in security, exposing Jung. As a choice of both the greater good and war, Gerrera took Rael's advice and opted against assisting Kreegyr.
