- "He's a perfectly ordinary man, pervasively so. But don't let that fool you - Smiles is one of the most politically savvy operators in the Senate."
- ―Someone describing Georj "Smiles" Lorrimer[[src]]
Georj Lorrimer, known to some as Smiles Lorrimer, was the Senator for Osarian in the Galactic Republic Senate, and a war veteran of the Galactic Civil War and the Yuuzhan Vong War, having served in the Rebel Alliance Navy and it's successors.
Georj Lorrimer was born on Osarian to a moderately wealthy family in 18 BBY. In 10 BBY, he stowed aboard his father's freighter during a journey to Tatooine. Once there, he snuck off the ship to look around the town of Mos Eisley. Grabbed during a raid by marauding Tusken Raiders, young Georj ended up captive within their camp. After a few hours, he was rescued by Ben Kenobi, investigating the raid, and returned to his Mos Eisley, where he stowed back aboard his father's ship for the return journey home.
Military and Political CareersEdit
Georj served within the Rebel Alliance Navy from the age of 19, having reached the rank of First Lieutenant by the time of the Battle of Endor. When the Alliance Fleet transitioned into becoming the New Republic Defense Force, Lorrimer continued to serve, moving in to Fleet Intelligence following an injury which cost him his left leg. He eventually found his way into the central Intelligence Service, and operated as a field intelligence operative throughout the remainder of the Civil War, and was involved heavily in the Republic's efforts throughout the Thrawn Crisis, Operation Shadow Hand, and Black Fleet Crisis. He served until the conclusion of the Yuuzhan Vong War, when he retired and begun a career in politics. He served as an Ambassador for Osarian, becoming one of their chief diplomats in 46 ABY, and continued to serve in this capacity until the 48ABY, when he was elected as the planet's representative in the Galactic Senate.
