Description: Gureni Telsij was a human male who served as a lieutenant and pilot in the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. At the Battle of Endor in 4 ABY, he flew a BTL-A4 Y-wing assault starfighter/bomber as part of Gray Squadron, jumping to the Endor system in order to try and destroy the Galactic Empire's Death Star II superweapon.
After the Alliance Fleet realized that it had fallen into a trap, hundreds of TIE fighters and TIE interceptors attacked the rebels, causing Telsij to declare that there were too many of the enemy. Moments later, the pilot was killed when his Y-wing was hit by enemy fire.
Lieutenant Gureni Telsij was a human male who served as a pilot in the Starfighter Corps of the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War against the Galactic Empire. He flew a BTL-A4 Y-wing assault starfighter/bomber as part of Gray Squadron, a mixed starfighter squadron of A/SF-01 B-wing starfighters, RZ-1 A-wing interceptors and Y-wings under the command of Gray Leader Horton Salm. In 4 ABY, the squadron flew alongside Red Squadron, Green Squadron, and Gold Squadron during the Alliance Fleet's attack on the Imperial Death Star II superweapon over the moon of Endor.
Gureni Telsij flew at the Battle of Endor.
Believing that they had the element of surprise and that the Death Star's shields were down, the fleet traveled through hyperspace from the Sullust system to the Endor system and prepared for an attack run on the battle station; however, after discovering that the Empire was jamming them, Alliance General Lando Calrissian realized that they had fallen into a trap. The general warned the rebel pilots that the shields were still up and called off the attack run, but as the entire fleet pulled away from the station, they discovered a large Imperial fleet emerging from the far side of the moon.
As hundreds of TIE fighters and interceptors engaged the Alliance pilots, Telsij declared that there were too many enemy ships. Moments later, he was killed when his fighter was struck by enemy fire. The Alliance went on to ultimately destroy the Death Star and claim a major victory at Endor, although not without heavy casualties.
Personality and traits
Telsij lost hope upon seeing the large number of enemy fighters during the Battle of Endor. He had dark hair and eyes and tan skin.
While piloting his Y-wing at Endor, Telsij wore a gray flight suit, with Gray Squadron's flight suit at the time consisting of a pressurized g-suit overall with an equipment overvest and a pair of black flight gloves. Telsij's red, white, and yellow flight helmet was decorated with a row of slanted green lines above its fitted facetted glare visor, with the visor protecting him from radiation generated by starlight, weapon fire, or explosions. It was also equipped with a connection point for a respirator and a built in wireless communicator linked to his Y-wings comms package.
The helmet was personalized with red symbols on the top and back and a partially worn off red and white emblem on the chin, the latter of which was also present on the helmets of Salm and the pilot Red Two during the Battle of Endor, and on the helmet of a weapons system officer in the squadron. Other markings on Telsij's helmet included a red logo and a green pattern on the right side of the helmet.
