The Republic is a Galactic Power founded to serve and protect the People of the Galaxy.
"To be a Ranger meant knowing how to move in any environment. To blend in with the forest or grassland, to sail, to swim, to dive, to pilot. To be masters of our surroundings. We were good spies, good warriors, very adept at intrusion and escape."
Established around 660 BBY, the Antarian Rangers were elite para-military forces that supported the Jedi Order in fulfilling their duties and keeping Peace around the Galaxy. At their most, they numbered around one thousand members, ranks as diverse as those in the Order themselves.
Founded again by Master Fai of the Resistance, the Antarian Rangers are chosen from the best soldiers, mechanics, pilots, technicians, scouts, spies and commandos and given the best equipment and training available to any Resistance trooper. They have become the fourth main branch of the Resistance Military, the three others being Ground Corps, Space Corps and Starfighter Corps. They have their place in the Resistance High Command, represented by Ranger General Tyria Yunel, a Gotal female.
At guess, there are around 250 Antarian Rangers currently in service. They normally accompany Jedis on various missions in groups of 3-10, one Ranger Captain and the rest made up of Rangers.
Master Fai has the honorific position of Lieutenant in the Anatarian Rangers, due to him being one of the founding members. Other important members include:
Ranger General Tyria Yunel, Commander of the Antarian Rangers and part of the Resistance High Command.
Ranger Captain Tarval, a male Wookie Warrior.
Ranger Captain June, a female Human.
Ranger Captain Sharpe, a male Gotal known for working with Master Fai.
Ranger Captain Neln, a Feeorin male.
