"I am, by right of birth and choice, your true Emperor! Not this Sith usurper, Krayt! It is to me that you all owe your allegiance"
―Roan Fel

The Empire-in-exile,[1] also known as the "true" Empire[2] and the New Order with a Personal Face, or the Bastion resistance by the Krayt Empire,[3] was the faction of the former Fel Empire that still remained loyal to Emperor Roan Fel, following the Sith coup in 130 ABY.[1]



As the Sith-Imperial War came to an end, Roan Fel was poised to establish his government on Coruscant. After a few days, the leader of the One Sith, Darth Krayt, arrived with Lords Nihl, Wyyrlok and Maladi and revealed their deception to Emperor Fel, killing his double, and seizing the throne for himself.[4]

The real Emperor Fel escaped the assassination attempt, and after seven years as a fugitive landed on the planet Bastion and formed a government-in-exile to rule the former Imperial Space.[4] Over the next seven years of resistance, more and more Imperial military units defected to his territory, subsequently acquiring more, previously stripped, territories. His administration even attempted to form an alliance with the Galactic Alliance Remnant, though the meeting was sabotaged by Jor Torlin and Morrigan Corde, agents of the Empire. As a result, Stazi remained distrustful of Fel's Imperials, while the latter were banned from entering the Wheel.[5]

A short time afterward, Masters Treis Sinde and Sigel Dare of the Imperial Knights planted three sets of bombs on board the prototype Advanced Star Destroyer Imperious, which would explode the moment the weapon systems were activated. However they didn't anticipate Stazi's plan to "liberate" the starship. The saboteurs were dispatched to rescue Monia Gahan from imprisonment on Dac and take her back to Stazi to disarm the bombs.

However on Monia's demand, the pair rescued the rest of the Rogue Squadron members captured after the battle. Due to this display of good faith and the beginning of genocide against the Mon Calamarians, Admiral Gar Stazi agreed to discuss a possible alliance with Fel in order to fight their common enemy.

The first collaboration between the new allies took place during the Battle of Ralltiir, where the alliance nearly met its end when a Fel loyalist, Admiral Edouard Fenel, threatened with fire on defenseless lifepods in order to force the Sith-loyal Coruscant Third Fleet into surrender. Admiral Stazi did everything within its power to prevent the Fel loyalists to resort to the tactics of the enemy, coming close to open fire on them, also making it clear to Emperor Fel that the Galactic Alliance fleet were allies of the Empire-in-exile and not vassals.[6]

A short time afterward, the Jedi agreed to collaborate with Admiral Stazi, even preventing an assassination attempt on his person[7]. Emperor Fel also arranged to secretly meet with representatives of the Jedi on the planet Agamar.[8]
