What are Factions
In Legends of the Galaxy your character can belong to a faction. A faction is an organization or an organization in an organization that your character owes Obligation or Duty towards. It helps enhance and focus the roleplaying experience and makes it easier for a Game Master to tie story elements that involve your character to the overall adventure they are running. Factions might represent the Hutt Kajidic you are forced to work for, or the division of the rebellion you take direct orders from, or the force tradition that your character best identifies themselves as following.
A great example of how your Faction can come into play is seen in the The Star Wars Story Rogue One when Cassian is given orders to accompany Jyn Erso to locate and recover her father by Mon Mothma. However Rebel Intelligence gives Cassian Andor an alternative order to assassinate Galen Erso rather than follow Mon Mothma's orders to bring him to the Rebellion so she can bring him before the Imperial Senate to instill change in the Galactic Empire.
When you select a Faction you also gain a member of that faction as a contact. For the example of Force Traditions you own a Holocron from that force tradition or gain a mentor from your chosen Force Tradition. Contact's may be called upon by flipping a light side destiny token during game play. They can provide helpful information, warn you of impending threats, and be there during mission briefings to send you on your way.
