"Take the word of Ansible Beelyard—here you have found a universe untainted by the darkness of the Empire!"
―Ansible Beelyard[src]

Ansible Beelyard was a Human male who was a well-known hero of the Rebel Alliance during the early days of the Galactic Civil War. Known as the Holy Terror, Beelyard was the right-hand man of the famous Cody Sunn-Childe in ferocious fights against the Galactic Empire that earned them notoriety across the galaxy.[1] However, around 3 BBY,[2] Beelyard, Sunn-Childe and the rest of their resistance band disappeared mysteriously—having had a religious revelation after a battle that awoke latent psychic abilities, Sunn-Childe created a dream utopia free of war, and there adopted a peaceful way of life for a time along with Beelyard and their companions.[1]

Beelyard and Sunn-Childe's whereabouts were unknown until 3 ABY, when Rebels Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca arrived in Sunn-Childe's pocket dimension by accident due to a hyperdrive malfunction. Their presence attracted the attention of a nearby group of Imperial troops, who began attacking Sunn-Childe's City of Dreams. Rather than forsake their pacifistic philosophy and fight back, Beelyard and his companions allowed the Imperials to destroy Sunn-Childe's realm and kill them.[1]
