On The Empire's Edge
Senator from Esseles
Gabrial Atanna was a male native of the Core World planet Esseles and was appointed as senator of Esseles to the Galactic Republic Senate. In 19 BBY, the Republic was reformed into the Galactic Empire following the conclusion of the Clone Wars, and Atanna continued to represent Esseles in the new Imperial Senate.
Secretly, however, Atanna helped to establish an information network between parties that opposed the Emperor’s rule. This eventually caught up with the senator, when an Imperial raid lead by the Second Brother captured Atanna, along with a group of rebels previously rescued by the crew of The Silver Slug
