(Second of Three) To test-drive SF skirmish rules, I need to identify individual figures--some of whom are part of the Rebel Alliance. I need more than a dozen names. I have so far:

Tremaine, Ketch, Cade, Shays, Dean (the rebel without a cause) and Yuma. What else have we got? And does anyone know the name of the girl who led the Dodge Rebellion? (Only REAL Trekkies will know who I'm talking about.)

Not talking about this one, are you?

Rebel Yell.

Rebell Leader

Who of course should not be the leader of the terrorist cell.

They could also use some classic Nome de Guerre.
Mr. Brown, Mr.White, Mr.Blonde, Mr.Blue, Mr.Orange, and Mr.Pink
Of course nobody of them wants to be Mr.Pink.

The name of the terrorist cell is obviously 'The Reservoir Dogs'

Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy, Dopey and Alice would be fine too.

You could give them exotic sounding names (I like French for this):
eau de pomme
nomme de guerr
guide de l'auto-stoppeur
Couper le fromage

How about some old "classics":
"Chalky" White
Red (has got red hair)
Hooky (has a big/prominent nose)
Windows (wears glasses or crashes a lot :-))

You might skim articles in an international news source and see if there are any names that look good -- not just personal names, but company and place names can work.

You got it, RAF! Austin is not on my list of rebels.

So, after a little thought, is Brando.

Just name them after US Army installations in southern states…

Lee, Polk, Hood, Jackson, Bragg, etc.

I always turn to The Resistance from "Top Secret"
