The Cool Stuff:
Physical Description: From SoA: "Wedge was, like Janson, below average height, and he thought of himself as one of the most ordinary-looking men alive. But admireres had told him that his features bespoke intelligence and determination. Qwi had said there was a mesmerizing depth to his brown eyes. Other ladies had been charmed by his hair--it was worn short, but as long as military regulations allowed, and and was the sort of fine hair that stirred in any breeze." (See below for image.)
Brief History: Wedge was raised on Gus Treta Station, in the Corellian system, where his parents operated a refueling station. When he was in his early teens, pirates evading Corsec took off from the station, igniting a fire. Jagged and Zena Antilles lost their lives after evacuating the people from the station. Wedge vowed revenge against the pirate, Loka Hask.
Aided by his friends, Booster and Mirax Terrik, Wedge became a freighter pilot. Beginning by running guns, he joined the Alliance in time to aid Luke at the Battle of Yavin. He was one of the cofounders of Rogue Squadron, and assumed command after Luke resigned his commission.
Friends: Luke Skywalker, Tycho Celchu, Wes Janson, Hobbie Klivian, Rogue / Wraith Squadron, Booster and Mirax Terrik
Agendas: Fight Imps, Vong, and incompetent New Republic officials.
Psychoses: Due to the death of his parents and his seperation from his sister, Syal, Wedge has some attachment issues. He distances himself from new relationships in order to avoid the pain of losing the individual.
Piloting Skills: Core Four
Battle Contributions: General butt-kicking abilities.
Miscellaneous: Wedge is arguably the greatest fighter pilot in the galaxy, being the only pilot to survive two Death Star runs (four including the novels). His reputation for success, honesty, and intelligence have made him respected throughout the New Republic as well as among Imperials. He is level-headed and a genius at strategy and tactics.
