The Mid Rim Retreat, formerly known as the Mid Rim Offensive during the first stages, was a series of battles that were fought between the Alliance to Restore the Republic and the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War.
Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, the Alliance embarked on one of its most ambitious offensives, involving thousands of ships and hundreds of battle groups as it pushed into the Mid Rim. After months of fighting and progress, Rebel forces became overextended and Alliance High Command ordered that there were to be no more advances. This decision was ultimately followed by orders to fall back as the Empire's counterattack drove into the gained territory, slowly forcing the Rebellion out of the Mid Rim. The Alliance was forced to retreat from worlds such as Ord Tiddell, Pothor, Jeyell, Charros, Trasse, and Durkteel, with several revolutionary groups retreating with the Alliance, while most others remained to harass the Empire.
Enter Everi ChalisEdit
Towards the end of the Mid Rim Retreat, the Alliance's Sixty-First Mobile Infantry, also known as Twilight Company, came victorious over the Imperial forces on Haidoral Prime. During their open recruit, they received a message via a mouse droid from a defector inside the Governor's mansion. They subsequently sent First Sergeant Hazram Namir and his squad to extract the defector. When they got into the main control room, they encountered a number of Imperial officers alongside the defector, Governor Everi Chalis. They killed the officers and took Chalis back to their captain, Micha Evon—also known as Howl. Chalis offered to help the Alliance take out key resourceful locations in the Empire's expansive territory.
The Twilight Company launched a campaign on Coyerti soon after where their squads landed on hte surface and attacked the Imperial forces. Namir and Sergeant Zab's squads took out an Imperial camp and a dozen squads attacked the local garrison. Howl decided to put Chalis's knowledge to the test and she coordinated Namir's team to take out the distillery on Coyerti. Namir's team planted detonators on certain barrels and destroyed the place with ease. However the toxins spread and they were forced to be picked up and treated before they could kill them. Chalis predicted that the destruction of the distillery would put the operations there back by ten years.
