Great results take time. You can not expect awesome effects for your actions if you do not keep doing the same actions over and over. A warrior knows this very well. He does not expect great consequences when he does not do enough for then to happen. If you want something to be restored, you have to battle for that. One day, the Galaxy will be grateful for us. Our work will be complete. Our efforts will be combined, and the Galactic Empire shall rise again
—Thrawn, talking about the restoration of the Galactic Empire
Mitth'raw'nuruodo, most commonly known by his code name Thrawn, was a Grand Admiral in the Galactic Empire and later in the Grand Order, as well as a member of the Chiss Ascendancy. He was vital to the restoration of the Empire in 30 ABY, helping to manipulate events within the United Galactic Republic and recruting people for the Order.

Serving the Empire
In the first two decades following the fall of the Galactic Empire, Thrawn worked ceaselessy to manipulate events within the United Galactic Republic, all in effort to restore the Empire. He orchestrated various attempts, robberies, and even assasinations. He also had some influence directly over the Galactic Senate. His aide-de-camp, Eli Vanto, now an Admiral, continued to help him on his work.
Thrawn was leading his task force in an operation to repeal insurgents of the Grand Order on a planet of the Unknown Regions, when a grenade hit him. He was able to be rescued and taken back to his ship still alive, but died some hours later.
Thrawn was studied by Force-students and normal students all over the Galaxy following the fall of the Sith Galactic Empire and the beginning of the First Great Era of Peace. He was designed as a "figure with a great strategic mind, able to see standards that almost no other people were able to see, as well as manipulate events that led to the restoration of the most horrible galactic goverment".
