|~ Ackbar’s most famous line|
Gial Ackbar was a veteran male Mon Calamari warrior. Born on Mon Cala in 50 BBY, he had an illustrious career as Captain of the Mon Calamari Guard, even playing a key role in the Republic’s victory at the Battle of Mon Cala in 20 BBY. During the reign of the Galactic Empire, Ackbar being a member of the Alliance to Restore the Republic alone was enough of a motivator for the already anti-imperial Mon Cala people to take the side of the Alliance. The Mon Calamari people and their powerful ships would form a bulk of the forces of the alliance’s starfleet. Ackbar would serve as Fleet Admiral for the Alliance Fleet and became a key member of Alliance High Command by around 0 BBY. From his personal flagship, the MC80 star cruiser Home One, Ackbar would go on to lead the Alliance Fleet to victory after victory; most notably during the space portion of the pivotal Battle of Endor in 4 ABY.
After the establishment of the New Republic, Ackbar served as Fleet Admiral of the New Republic Starfleet and led many successful campaigns; such as the one to capture the prestigious and heavily defended Kuat Drive Yards, to liberate the planet Akiva where a meeting of important imperial remnant leaders was taking place, the liberation of the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk, and the battle of Jakku which was the final desperate stand of the unified imperial remnants. Some time after this battle, he retired to his homeworld while continuing to offer political support for his good friend Leia Organa. Some time after 28 ABY, Ackbar joined the Leia Organa led Resistance movement against the First Order, serving as the Resistance Navy Fleet Admiral.
