The Rengali Imperial Naval Academy was one of the Academies[1] used by the Galactic Empire to train its officers.[2] Zal Artha attended the Naval Academy to become a pilot[1] around 0 ABY.[3] As a woman, Artha faced harassment and derision from the instructors and students[1] due to the institutional bias toward male Humans.[2] When she graduated after performing with distinction during her time there, she was passed over for promotion as part of the continued bias and fears by Imperial High Command that she had Rebel Alliance sympathies due to the fact she was a Chandrilan. Artha eventually defected to the Rebel Alliance.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Rengali Academy was mentioned in Zal Artha's Character Folio included with Fantasy Flight Games' 2014 roleplaying game Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Beginner Game. The Folio was reprinted in the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Core Rulebook.
