Description: Tarn Mison was a Human male from Las Lagon who served as an Imperial pilot and smuggler before defecting to the Rebel Alliance after witnessing the mass execution of colonists on the planet Farbinda III by the Empire. By 3 ABY, Mison was stationed at the Rebellion's headquarters of Echo Base on the ice planet Hoth.
After serving as Tycho Celchu's gunner under the call sign Rogue Five at the Battle of Hoth, Mison was among a group of six Rebel pilots who flew X-wing starfighter escort for the GR-75 medium transport Bright Hope through the Imperial Navy blockade in Hoth's orbit. Despite Mison's and his group's efforts, the Bright Hope failed to escape destruction during its blockade run.
Imperial service and smuggling
The Human male Tarn Mison hailed from the planet Las Lagon, located in the Inner Rim. Growing up, Mison learned to fly, and he became noted as a talented bush pilot. At some point, Mison joined the Galactic Empire, serving as a pilot.
Eventually, Mison turned to smuggling, playing his trade on the Shipwrights' Trace hyperlane. During the Galactic Civil War, he accepted a job to ferry supplies to the planet Farbinda III, where a group of conscientious objectors had established a colony. Upon arrival, he discovered that an Imperial strike team had landed on Farbinda III, where they had rounded up the local populace who offered no resistance. Mison watched as the Imperials summarily executed the colonists.
Horrified, Mison spent several months deliberating on the events before deciding to join the Alliance to Restore the Republic shortly following the destruction of the first Death Star at the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY. For a time, Mison served the Rebellion at Massassi Station on the moon of Yavin 4, prior to the Alliance's evacuation of the base six months following the Battle of Yavin.
Smuggling and Rebel Alliance service
As a lieutenant, Mison earned an assignment to the Alliance High Command headquarters of Echo Base on the ice planet Hoth by 3 ABY, where he was passing through the facility's main transport hangar while Captain Shawn Valdez issued orders regarding the base's evacuation procedure to his subordinates in the face of imminent Imperial invasion just prior to the Battle of Hoth.
Mison was drafted into the hastily assembled Rogue Group, a collection of pilots and gunners drawn from Rogue Flight, Blue Squadron, and Green Squadron. Rogue Group was assigned to fly T-47 airspeeders to counter the Imperial AT-AT walker assault and give the Alliance forces time to evacuate the planet. Mison was partnered with Tycho Celchu under the call sign Rogue Five, serving as the gunner.
Escape from Hoth
Both Celchu and Mison survived the subsequent battle. During the last stages of the evacuation, Mison, along with pilots Wedge Antilles, Derek "Hobbie" Klivian, and Wes Janson, was one of six Rebel pilots who flew T-65 X-wing starfighters as escort for the GR-75 medium transport Bright Hope, the final Rebel evacuation transport to depart the besieged Echo Base alongside the GR-75 medium transports Thon's Orchard and Dutyfree.
However, Mison's escort failed to see the Bright Hope through the Imperial Navy blockade waiting in Hoth's orbit. A combined attack by Imperial Star Destroyers and the Mist Hunter, the craft of bounty hunters Zuckuss and 4-LOM, all but destroyed the Bright Hope before it could reach the safety of hyperspace. Seeing that there was nothing they could do for the Bright Hope and that no rescue attempt could be made for any possible survivors, Mison and the five escorting X-wing pilots escaped into hyperspace themselves.
Ultimately, despite the damage done to the Bright Hope, many of the transport's passengers managed to evacuate to safety. Likewise, Thon's Orchard and Dutyfree also managed to safely evacuate.
Personality and traits
Tarn Mison's interests generally revolved around credits rather than politics. However, upon witnessing the Imperial atrocity on Farbinda III, Mison's conscience led him to join the Alliance to Restore the Republic to oppose the Empire. He had fair skin, brown hair, and a brown beard.
Skills and abilities

Mison wore the standard Rebel flight suit along with a flight helmet during his service as a Rebel pilot.
