The Strategic Information Service, commonly known as the SIS, is the Galactic Republic's covert intelligence agency.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The SIS was established in the early years of the Great Galactic War to provide the Republic with a covert intelligence service. Although extensive, it maintained a far smaller network than it's Imperial counterpart, Imperial Intelligence, and had no arcane bureaucracy. By the Cold war it was headquartered in the Heorem Complex on Coruscant.[1]

Operating morally and within Republic Law was something that marked the SIS as different from Imperial Intelligence, with the exception of rare occasions where straying from the law was necessary to complete their objectives. Despite this is was known to be an effective intelligence agency.[1]

Coruscant[edit | edit source]

While also headquartered on Coruscant, the SIS conducted an operation to disrupt hijacker activities. An undercover Twi'lek operative convinced a Republic ally to partake in this mission.

Belsavis[edit | edit source]

After the Republic discovered an ancient Rakatan prison on Belsavis the Republic Strategic Information Service conducted classified talks and decided to reopen this detention facility, dubbed The Tomb, as a last resort for holding prisoners where execution was either not possible or impractical.[2] This brought the SIS into direct conflict with Imperial Intelligence, as they carried out the Imperial Prison Break Initiative to liberate captured Sith.[2]
