With their combined influence, they tried to resist totalitarianism at the door.
Empire String Power
After the fall of the Republic, Mon Mothma opposed the Empire, remaining in the Senate and acting as a liaison between various anti-authoritarian factions. Ten years later, he left the Imperial Senate to join the Rebel Alliance. It was the senator who insisted on saving the scientist Galen Erso.. Which, to a certain extent, makes her responsible – indirectly – for the events told in outcast one.
