Gray (Previously black)
|Chronological and political information|
Irenez was a female Human who served second-in-command of Garm Bel Iblis' dissident Rebel group at Peregrine's Nest. Alongside her counterpart Sena she served as Bel Iblis' chief advisor. An attractive woman with short gray hair, she was nevertheless middle aged by the time that Han Solo and Lando Calrissian met her at the base.
Irenez's association with Senator Bel Iblis began when he financed her education at the Imperial Academy. Following her graduation, she refused to join the Imperial Navy, instead she formed her own platoon of mercenaries and soldiers, remaining neutral between the Empire and the Rebellion. However, after Bel Iblis went into hiding following an Imperial assassination attempt on Anchoron, Irenez would join his movement to lead his ground forces.
1.5 years ABY Irenez and Bel Iblis were active on Corellia, where Irenez was involved in fighting the Black Sun crime syndicate on the planet. She hired a spacer to help her capture the Black Sun accountant Tessa Wylden who would reveal valuable information about the organization. Through Wylden, Irenez learned that the Black Sun had hired an assassin called Skazz to kill the head of CorSec and ordered the spacer to intercept the assassin and eliminate him. Further information from Wylden revealed that the Empire had been selling weapons to the Black Sun. Irenez enlisted the spacer's help a third time to attack and kill a group of Black Sun members and disrupt the weapons deal.
In 9 ABY she was responsible for securing the secret meetings of Tav Breil'lya and Garm Bel Iblis on New Cov. Due to her picket lines Han Solo was intercepted when he tried to tail Breil'lya, as did Luke Skywalker when he arrived on New Cov to meet Solo. When Imperial forces raided Ilic to obtain drugs and medicines—a cover for the city's clandestine payments to the Empire—Irenez was ordered to help them return to their ships.
When Solo and Calrissian came to Peregrine's Nest, Irenez asked them to try to engineer a request from Mon Mothma for a formal invitation to join the New Republic, as she knew that Mothma was not seeking power for herself, and that Bel Iblis was too proud to go asking for an invitation. Irenez joined the New Republic with the rest of Bel Iblis' former forces.
