Mitth'raw'nuruodo. Warlord of the Empire, Servant of the Emperor. The last Grand Admiral. Founder of the Empire of the Hand.
so I just finished reading the Thrawn Trilogy and had to do a thing because wow Grand Admiral Thrawn was really great
I really appreciated how he was basically the exact opposite of Vader, yet made an incredibly badass antagonist and by the end I just wanted to see him continue throwing his military prowess against the New Republic and treating his subordinates with reasonable working conditions and holding Art Appreciation Thursdays

"…our experience with Grand Admiral Thrawn, taught us that insularity could be a weakness as well as a strength. It’s not enough to be strong; a truly successful culture needs to be flexible as well. And in order to be flexible, we must look beyond what we consider familiar; we must come to know our neighbors as well as we know ourselves."
