|Chronological and political information|
Chanceller or Chance was a Human male Lieutenant who served the Galactic Empire during the height of the Galactic Civil War. His horror of the war eventually caused him to defect from his line of duty.
In 6 BBY, Lieutenant Chanceller was assigned to a battle group led by the Inquisitor Adalric Brandl. The group was responsible for tracking down Rebel presences on Imperial worlds and neutralizing them. This line of work led Chanceller and Brandl to the world of Janara III. There the battle group tracked Rebels to a nearby town, and Brandl ordered its complete destruction.
The devastation of the town also ended up demolishing a local nursery. Chanceller was distraught over the loss of innocent life, and he began to absentmindedly sift through the rubble of the destroyed building. Remarkably, Chanceller's actions unearthed a small girl. Chanceller showed the child to Brandl, and he used the Force to discover that the girl was Force-sensitive. This attribute saved the girl's life, as Adalric knew she could be a valuable asset as a future Dark Jedi.
Soon after this, Chanceller found himself on Garos IV, an Imperial-friendly world. There, he organized the adoption of the girl by the local Imperial Governor, Tork Winger. Lieutenant Chanceller soon defected and took to being called Chance in place of his full name. Chance continued to reside on Garos IV and kept an eye on Alex Winger, the young girl he had saved.
