General Madine specialized in covert actions for the Rebel Alliance, waging war in secret against Imperial troops and the Emperor's own shadowy agents. His plans culminated with the operation to destroy the shield generator on the Forest Moon of Endor.
While Alliance leaders such as Admiral Ackbar concerned themselves with the tactics of space battles and big military campaigns, Madine worked in the shadows, plotting how to steal Imperial equipment and sneak strike teams onto occupied planets.
Before the Battle of Endor, Madine's operatives stole an Imperial shuttle. The general's plan: land a strike team on the Forest Moon, overcome Imperial resistance, and destroy the shield generator protecting the Death Star.
