"You want me to fly with your forces against Cartann."
"No. To lead them. All of them."
―Wedge Antilles to Perator Escalion[src]

Escalion was the perator of the Yedagon Confederacy. He offered sanctuary to Red Flight, Iella Wessiri, Cheriss ke Hanadi and Hallis Saper, who at the time were fleeing from Cartann.

He offered General Wedge Antilles command of the united forces of all nations opposed to Cartann, an offer Wedge accepted. After winning the Adumari Civil War, he along with rulers of the other nations formed the Adumari Union.
