Symbol of Command
Alliance Commanders hail from numerous human, near-human, and alien cultures from throughout the galaxy. From contemplative, level-headed Mon Calamari, to cunning Bothans, to dangerously capricious humans of every stripe, Commanders who join the Alliance bring with them generations of their native military culture and heritage. In most of these cultures, commanding officers and highly ranked NCOs carry some item about their person that represents their lawful command over their subordinates. This could be anything from a ceremonial saber worn with a dress uniform, to a megaphone used to broadcast commands, to a stuncrop used to motivate sluggish troopers. Whatever the item, it symbolized the power of an individual's command, and the Commander is rarely found without it.
No matter what form the item takes, Commanders carrying a symbol of command add :eB: to all Social skill checks made to interact with others brought up in their particular military culture.
