Description: Kin Kian was a Human male Rebel pilot who served in Aggressor Squadron and Rogue Squadron. In 4 ABY, he participated in the Battle of Endor, serving as the gunner for Gray Leader Colonel Horton Salm's BTL-S3 Y-wing starfighter as part of the Alliance Fleet component that attacked the Galactic Empire's second Death Star battlestation in the Endor system.
Alliance service and preparing for the Battle of Endor
The Human male Kin Kian served as a Rebel pilot during the Galactic Civil War fought between the Alliance to Restore the Republic and the Galactic Empire. He was a part of Aggressor Squadron, although he left the squadron by 4 ABY. By that year, Kian had also joined Rogue Squadron as a pilot.
In 4 ABY, Kin Kian was one of the Rebel pilots who attended a briefing aboard the MC80 Home One type Star Cruiser Home One, where the Alliance High Command discussed plans for destroying the Empire's second Death Star battlestation. It was planned that the Alliance Fleet would attack the Death Star in the Endor system, while a strike team would travel to the Forest Moon of Endor to disable the deflector shield generator protecting the orbiting Death Star. In the subsequent Battle of Endor, Colonel Horton Salm led Gray Squadron, flying a BTL-S3 Y-wing starfighter with the call sign of Gray Leader. Kian was also aboard Salm's BTL-S3 Y-wing starfighter in the battle, where he was assigned as the gunner.
Battle of Endor and Alliance victory
As Gray Leader's gunner, Kian was present with other Alliance starfighters assembled in the Sullust system. The fleet was led by General Lando Calrissian, and Gray Leader was ordered to disable capital ships between Calrissian and the Death Star. Gray Leader made the hyperspace jump to the Endor system, with Salm checking in after Calrissian requested all fighter wings to do so. Initially advancing toward the Death Starâ€”with anticipation that the deflector shield was already downâ€”Gray Leader and the other starfighters broke off from the attack just as the Imperial Navy's fleet appeared in Sector 47 to counterattack the Allianceâ€”the strike team had not yet deactivated the shield, and the Empire had planned a trap for the Alliance.
The strike team managed to disable the Death Star's deflector shield, prompting Gray Leader and other Alliance starfighters to follow Calrissian into the Death Star's superstructure to destroy the station's reactor core. The Alliance fighters entered the superstructure through an access shaft, followed by Imperial TIE/IN interceptors and TIE/LN starfighters. Calrissian ordered several of the Alliance starfighters to head to the Death Star's surface to draw off some of the pursuing Imperial starfighters, with Gray Leader being among the starfighters to follow Calrissian's order. Calrissian managed to destroy the Death Star, and Salm survived both the Battle of Endor and the subsequent four-hour fleet battle.
