Description: Wes Janson was an ace starfighter pilot of the Alliance to Restore the Republic and New Republic. Janson first joined the Alliance prior to the Battle of Yavin, but contracted an illness that prevented him from flying in that engagement. He later served with Rogue Squadron, the Rebellion's most elite starfighter squadron. As a key member of the Rogues, he fought at the battles of Hoth and Endor, among others. After Endor, Janson flew in multiple engagements as part of Rogue Squadron, including covering the defection of Imperial Grand Vizier Sate Pestage. Following that mission, Rogue Squadron was temporarily disbanded and Janson, along with his good friend Derek Klivian, were assigned to train new pilots. He would later go on to serve with Wraith Squadron, the New Republic's pilot/commando unit. Janson was the first executive officer of the squadron and saw action both in space and on the ground during commando missions against Warlord Zsinj. After Zsinj was defeated, Janson transferred back to Rogue Squadron. Janson eventually reached the rank of Major after years of service fighting against the Galactic Empire, including in campaigns against Prince-Admiral Delak Krennel and Grand Admiral Thrawn, as well as a diplomatic mission to Adumar.

Janson retired from active service after the end of the Galactic Civil War, but returned to serve the New Republic by leading a group of volunteers during the Yuuzhan Vong War. The Yellow Aces were heavily involved at the Battle of Borleias, garnering a reputation as an elite unit. After the Yuuzhan Vong surrender, Janson retired again, but peace was fleeting. He would once again return to combat in the Second Galactic Civil War, joining Rakehell Squadron in support of Luke Skywalker's insurgency against Jacen Solo, who had fallen to the dark side. Janson flew in the Battle of Centerpoint, providing cover for Jedi infiltration teams.

Personality and traits
Janson had dark brown hair, brown eyes, and stood at a height of 1.7 meters. He was regarded as a joker, despite being a lethal opponent, being particularly accurate with blaster pistols and starfighter-grade weaponry. According to Skywalker, Janson was only truly happy when he was manning the guns of a Y-wing or an airspeeder. He was known for having a short temper, often having to be pulled out of cantina fights. Janson was described as observant, using what he noticed as fodder for his witty remarks, mockery, or jokes. He was generally cheerful and light-hearted, even in the face of opposition or boredom.

Janson also considered himself a ladies' man, frequently seeking the attention of women he considered attractive. His flirtatious nature was amplified by a dark side temple on Malrev IV, leading to his solicitation of a female Bothan. Janson's casual flirtations also led to him accidentally trying to attract the attention of Jaina Soloā€”he was shocked when he learned of her identity and regretted his pursuit.

He enjoyed playing pranks on his fellow squad mates. He believed in having fun today, because tomorrow might not come. During his time in Wraith Squadron, he developed the character Lieutenant Kettch, a fictional Ewok starfighter pilot. Kettch became a recurring theme in Janson's pranks. This originated when he claimed that a candidate for Wraith Squadron was an Ewok, and then it circulated among the Wraiths, including the time Wraith slicer Castin Donn reprogrammed Antilles' TIE Interceptor to make his voice sound like an Ewok. This led to Antilles being forced to fly into battle, against Imperial forces, while wearing a stuffed Ewok in his lap. When the stuffed Ewok doll started showing up everywhere and appeared to move on its own, Antilles attached a transponder to it, leading to the discovery that Janson was placing the doll in those places. The Wraiths got back at Janson by convincing him that the real Kettch had gotten loose and he had to strip naked and cover himself in Ewok food to find and recapture it. The joke only ended when Lara Notsil found a real Ewok that fit Kettch's description exactly. She found this hilarious.

Due to his mischievous nature, Janson was not considered suitable to leave behind on the ground on Adumar to conduct sensitive diplomatic negotiations by Antilles. However, Janson was loyal to his friends and fellow pilots despite any good-natured grumbling or teasing he gave them when they needed his help. Janson was willing to keep watch all night long for Antilles during a covert rendezvous between Antilles and Iella Wessiri, and also placed his life at risk in order to save both Antilles and Cheriss ke Hanadi from possibly fatal injuries by engaging in a blastsword duel against an experienced duelist.

Janson did have a serious side though, that exhibited itself through grim, angry determination. It didn't come out often, but Janson apparently was in this mood when fighting or flying against an enemy of his. Janson also abandoned his typical jesting nature when discussing the incident where he was forced to kill fellow Rebel pilot Kissek Doran. Janson likewise displayed his serious side in a series of interactions with Doran's son, Kell Tainer, which ultimately led to the resolution of the conflict between them.

During his career as a pilot and soldier, Janson was noted for his bravery, particularly during commando missions. Kell Tainer noted that Janson could probably make a fort out of all his bravery commendations. During ground combat, Janson was calm and controlled under fire, using his blaster skills to good effect or placing charges to destroy key facilities.

Post-retirement, Janson developed a sense of responsibility and initiative when he found, trained, and commanded the volunteer fighter squadron Taanab Yellow Aces. Janson remained with the squadron for over two years of the Yuuzhan Vong War, ruefully citing his responsibility to them as reason enough to remain with the squadron instead of transferring back into Rogue Squadron. His light-hearted and playful side remained, but Janson was still a skilled-enough pilot and trainer that his squadron was considered an elite unit alongside Rogue and Twin Suns Squadrons.
