The TIE Vindicator was to be an elite model of starfighter, being built by the Osahn Confederacy, a small group of planets in the Osa Sector led by Moff Darden and a dark-sider named Lord Ravage. It has been revealed to them the hypocrisy of the Emperor from Ravage's former working with the Prophets of the Dark Side, deep within the Imperial Hierarchy. The planet Osahn, a crystaline world rich with an ore needed in the production of starship hulls, was attacked and devastated by the Confederacy during the Clone Wars. When Ravage, working for the Empire under his birth name of Karada Barkura, and Darden discover the game Sidious had played during the Clone Wars, scarring their world and their own lives in the process, they decided somehow, someway, this corrupt figurehead must be toppled.
Before Barkura's 'demise' at the hands of Darth Vader for failing an important mission, he learned of an ancient Sith Alchemist and Warlord named Seto Kalrawsh who had built what was dubbed as 'the ultimate weapon' in his hopes to seek revenge upon the Sith, his people. With what information they could find without having their plans revealed, they set out to find Kalrawsh's
weapon. In the process, they discoveedr many ruined bases and laboratories hidden across the galaxy that had once been part of the warlord's doma, amongst them a marvelous database of ancient technology and some sort of replication technology built by a people known as the Rakata. Apparently Kalrawsh had used this technology to augment his own fleet, so the Moff and Lord Ravage decided that they would put it to use likewise
Scouring both through that information database and using starfighter schematics from the more recent era, the workmen of Osahn Spaceworks designed their state's new signature starfighter, keeping some designs from the various models of the TIE series as a sign of their birth from the corrupt Empire, some features from ancient Sith Fighters, signifying their goal to overthrow and seek revenge upon their enemies, and their own personal touches. Thus, in honor of their noble goal, their design was dubbed by Moff Darden as the TIE Vindicator.
Two squardons were effectively built and put into service, making them an elite fighter group to bolster the base compliment of standards TIE Fighter and patrol the planets of the Osahn Confederacy.
