- "We're a family. Family does for family."
- ―Soontir Fel
The Fel dynasty was a prominent Imperial family that was known for its military service to the Galactic Empire and the Empire of the Hand before ascending to become the ruling house of the Imperial Remnant and re-organizing it as the Fel Empire. Before the ascension of Jagged Fel, the first of the Fel Emperors, his family—or at least, his parents—were media stars of the first Galactic Empire and later associated with the Empire of the Hand and the Chiss Ascendancy. At least three members were dedicated soldiers—Soontir Fel was one of the Empire's most decorated pilots and his son Jagged flew with distinction during the Yuuzhan Vong War. The family was also linked to one of the most famous Rebellion and later on New Republic families, the Antilles family of Corellia, by marriage through Syal Antilles Fel, though due to their different positions in the political fabric of the galaxy, they had little contact for much of the Galactic Civil War.
Following the conclusion of the Second Galactic Civil War, the Fel family's ties to the Galactic Alliance were reinforced with the marriage of Jagged Fel to Jaina of the House of Solo. Jagged's descendants ruled the Fel Empire until Darth Krayt's coup of 130 ABY, which overthrew Emperor Roan Fel, the third Fel Emperor. Following a period of civil war between Fel's faction and Krayt's faction, the Fel dynasty was restored under Roan's daughter Marasiah as the Empire's first Empress.

Behind the scenes
Because Roan, Marasiah, and Mohrgan Fel are Force users, it is widely believed by fans that they are descendants of Jaina Solo, Jagged Fel's longtime love interest. This speculation has been reinforced by the couple's marriage in Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse.

Notes and references
- ↑ While Legacy 8: Allies established Mohrgan Fel as Roan Fel's cousin, it has not been confirmed whether he was a first cousin or a more distant relative. Consecutively, it cannot be stated for sure at this point that he was an offspring of Fel II's sibling, as such sibling has not been mentioned in Star Wars canon thus far; hence Mohrgan's placement in the family tree.
