Chronological and political information

Dorja was a male Human starship captain and officer in the Imperial Navy. He was likely the father of Imperial officer Vana Dorja, as she was the daughter of a Star Destroyer captain.


The seventh in a line of starship commanders from Coruscant, Dorja was a conservative officer and extremely cautious commander, often to the point of avoiding direct engagement.

After receiving command of the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Relentless, Dorja saw action against an uprising on Gerrard V.

At the Battle of Endor, Dorja commanded his ship against the Rebel Alliance fleet. While his contemporaries viewed Dorja's caution as a lack of initiative, that very care allowed Relentless to escape the battle unscathed. Dorja remained with Gilad Pellaeon after the battle, although he was skeptical of Pellaeon's assumption of command, believing himself to be the proper savior of the fleet.

The emergence of Grand Admiral Thrawn provided Dorja a new opportunity to prove his worth, although after openly criticizing Thrawn and Pellaeon, Dorja was assigned secondary roles such as the assault on New Cov, part of Thrawn's plan to capture the Ukio system, and a supporting role in the Battle of Bilbringi. Dorja survived the conflict and several other Imperial defeats, proving that his caution was no detriment. In fact, Dorja was one of the few starship captains who had retained control of his Star Destroyer in the decade following Thrawn's defeat. He later was placed in the Braxant Sector Fleet.

In 19 ABY, Dorja was recruited by Moff Vilim Disra for the dubious task of intercepting Colonel Meizh Vermel at Morishim. By appealing to Dorja's Imperial loyalty and pride, Disra hoped to sway the elderly captain into capturing Vermel and preventing Admiral Pellaeon's attempts at peace with the New Republic. Dorja was skeptical of Disra's intentions and questioned his authority to command fleet movements beyond his sector, but the appearance of Flim as Thrawn was enough to sway him.

At Morishim, Relentless intercepted Pellaeon's courier, and transported him to Rimcee Station. Days before the signing of the Bastion Accords, Dorja, under orders of Flim and Disra, took Relentless to Yaga Minor where Pellaeon and Chimaera intercepted the Star Destroyer, putting an end to Disra's plans.
