Description: Kazuda Xiono, nicknamed "Kaz," was a human male military pilot who served the New Republic in the years following the conclusion of the Galactic Civil War. The son of Senator Hamato Xiono, Kazuda served with the Starfighter Corps of the New Republic Defense Fleet during the cold war, at which point the Resistance recruited him to spy on the First Order. As a result, he was sent to the Colossusâ€”an independent refueling station located on the Outer Rim planet Castilonâ€”where Commander Poe Dameron instructed him to gather information pertaining to the local population's sympathies and determine if their allegiance was to the Republic or the First Order.
In order to avoid detection while engaging in espionage, Xiono required an occupation that would serve as a cover for his spying activities. He therefore became a starship mechanic in Jarek Yeager's repair shop. Additionally, he supported Yeager's Team Fireball as a racer and stunt pilot. Before departing from Castilon, Dameron left his astromech droid BB-8 in Xiono's care, believing the droid could help Xiono realize his full potential as an asset for the Resistance.
Although Xiono struggled to maintain his cover as a mechanic, an occupation in which he had no prior experience, he was able to impress the platform's community by competing against Torra Doza in his first race on the Colossus. Furthermore, he contributed to its defense during a pirate raid on the platform, helping the Ace Squadron to drive off Kragan Gorr and his gang.
Born on the Core World Hosnian Prime in 14 ABY, Kazuda "Kaz" Xiono was the son of Senator Hamato Xiono, a wealthy politician who served in the Galactic Senate during the era when the galaxy was governed by the New Republic, years after the Galactic Civil War. Xiono, who aspired to become a great pilot, was awarded a trophy made from aurodium after winning his first race. He would keep it among his personal effects for years, believing the trophy brought him good fortune as well as the fact that it reminded him of his homeworld.
With his father's support, Xiono was able to enroll in a military academy which, in turn, led to service in the New Republic Defense Fleet. By then, the rise of the First Order gave way to a tense political standoff between the Republic and the Galactic Empire's successor. By 34 ABY, Xiono was serving as a T-85 X-wing pilot in the New Republic Starfighter Corps.
When New Republic Command acquired critical information pertaining to the First Order's operations in the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories, Xiono's squadron was tasked with delivering the intelligence to the Resistance. They were engaged by Major Elrik Vonreg, who sought to prevent the squadron from completing their mission. Unable to outmaneuver the First Order pilot, Xiono ordered his wingmates, Mia Gabon and Hugh Sion, to abandon the mission while he remained behind to await the arrival of their Resistance contact, Commander Poe Dameron. Together, Xiono and Dameron were able to drive off Vonreg's TIE.
Concerned by the First Order's growing influence, the Resistance sought to protect the Republic by gathering information relating to the hermetic state. Dameron therefore recruited Xiono into the organization. Although he was a pilot at the time, the Resistance sought to utilize Xiono as a spy for a classified assignment on the Colossusâ€”an independent refueling station located on the Outer Rim ocean planet Castilon.
Personality and traits
Whereas Kazuda Xiono was confident in his abilities as a trained pilot in the New Republic Navy, he was less sure of himself when it came to his role as a Resistance spy. Despite feeling out of his element as a spy, Xiono was determined to make the best of his situation, largely through his cover as a mechanic in order to better carry out his mission for the Resistance.
He was loyal to the New Republic, having been born under its rule. Believing the First Order posed a threat to his government, Xiono felt compelled to support the Resistance in spite of his father, who viewed Leia Organa and her followers as extremists. Unlike Hamato, Kazuda was inspired by the Resistance, particularly by its leaders such as Organa and Poe Dameron.
Xiono was a human male who had black hair, brown eyes, and light skin. He had a scar on the left side of his temple hairline by the time of his assignment on Castilon.
Skills and abilities
Kazuda Xiono specialized in piloting New Republic X-wing starfighters. Unlike his role in intelligence gathering, Xiono was both skilled and self-assured in the cockpit of a starfighter. Xiono's lack of mechanical expertise, however, posed problems with his cover on his undercover mission, as he was supposed to be a mechanic as well as a pilot, and had some difficulty learning As he spent more time in his job his skills as a mechanic grew however, and was able to help repair the Colossusâ€™s targeting computer. Thanks to his training in the New Republic Navy, he was also a decent shot with a blaster, albeit in simulations.
