Personal History

Early Life Kelleq Neestrinn was born on Coruscant in 68BBY. He is the second son of Colm and Treshi Neestrinn. His family was one of modesty, his father was a mid level bureaucrat working for the Coruscant Customs Union while his mother took care of the household. From an early age, both Kelleq and his older brother Riv, were raised with a strict sense of duty and family. His father was loyal to their home planet of Coruscant, but not necessarily the Republic. Kelleq's father taught his sons that the Republic had it's faults. The bureaucracy was corrupt as the corporate interests of the galaxy ran roughshod over the citizens. But, it was the best system they knew, so they endured. Kelleq and his brother were both groomed to a live of service. At the age of 18, Kelleq was enrolled in the Republic Judicial Academy, the primary military school for the Judicial Forces. Kelleq was identified early on as a skilled tactician, and he recieved his commission and served with the Diplomatic Fleet. It was around this time, Kelleq fell in love with a young woman, Gala Beige. The two were engaged to be married, but in the end Kelleq felt his duty outweighed his love for Gala. The engagement was broken off, and Kelleq committed himself fully to his career.
Adulthood During his service with the Diplomatic fleet, Kelleq saw first hand that the peace that prevailed among the Republic was incredibly fragile. Often times, he found himself attempting to make peace with forces that vastly outnumbered his own, and the significant casualties he saw further soured his views on the Republic. He often argued to his superiors that more aggressive measures needed to be taken to bring those belligerents into line, but he was always overlooked. This also tended to put him at odds with the Jedi that would be assigned to lead the negotiation missions. Kelleq's opinions of the Jedi were their inherent aversion to violence often prevented him from accomplishing his mission. As the Separatist crisis began, Kelleq found himself stuck in his career, having reached as high a position he could obtain as a peacekeeper. He reacted to the news of the formation of the Confederacy with anger. In Kelleq's view, the Senate had allowed this civil war to ocur through it's own inaction. However, this meant that Kelleq was offered the chance to leave his role as a peacekeeper behind and so he was commissioned into the Republic Navy after it's formation. During the Clone Wars, Kelleq commanded numerous Venator class cruisers, and he was noted for obtaining quick and decisive victories in the early days despite the Republic Navy's young age. As the Clone Wars turned into a pitched war, he continued to believe that the pivotal role that the Jedi were playing as military commanders hindered the war effort. It was also at this time he learned that Riv was killed in action at the Battle of Christophsis, where he had been serving as the captain of a Republic frigate. As the war dragged on, Kelleq began to realize that the republic was failing. the Jedi were too cautious in their strategy, and as such, he requested to commande a fleet without the oversight of Jedi Commanders. It was about the time when he was dispatched to Cato Neimodia to assist in the invasion there when he learned of the attempt on the Chancellor's life at the hand's of the Jedi. Kelleq embraced the formation of the Galactic Empire with much enthusiasm. Upon being commissioned into the Imperial Navy, Kelleq rose through the ranks quickly earning distinction by mopping up the last remnants of the Confederacy Forces. Due to his success, he was offered a posting as an Imperial Regional Governor, but he declined. Kelleq preferred to command a fleet, and so he retained his rank. Kelleq served as the Vice Admiral of the Jakku sector fleet before he was promotted to Fleet Admiral and given command of the 12th Fleet.
