The fun thing about genealogy is finding out all those things you ancestors did, even the ones that you'd rather not have in your family tree. Since this is supposed to be over 25,000 years in the past, I switched people around, so you have a lloyal officer named Palpatine, a Fortuna and a Solo in intelligence, a Solo and a Dodonna who were Jedi, a Cracken who was in in intelligence, but it's all far enough back that a modern family might not have a record of it. In my own family tree I have pirates, murderers, and even three who were priests, and that's just in four generatuions past.
My own favorite character, Cracken, was based on an actual man I portrayed when I used to work the renaissance Faires. Edward Burnam. He was, in his times, a field operative, handler for operatives in France and Spain, and died as Chief of Operations on the continent, all except for the last working for Sir Francis Walsimgham who served Elizabeth I. The thing is, there is almost nothing recorded about the man. He never stood for a portrait, or released information to make himsefl look better, or concealed any that might do him political harm, unlike our modern heads of such agencies.
