"Yes, sir. I wanted to join the rebellion with Leia, but my father had other ideas.
Tycho Celchu and Beruss, the former reviewing Beruss's history[1]

The son of Illodian Senator Doman Beruss and great nephew of Corellian Senator Doman Beruss, the Human male Avan Beruss was born into the privilege of a Core family, befriending other similarly blessed children like Leia Organa.

During his time at the Illodian Officers' Academy, Beruss developed skills as a star pilot and sharpshooter. After graduating with honors, Beruss was slated to represent Illodia in the 0 BBY Imperial Games as a sharpshooter, until they were cancelled due to Alderaan's destruction.

While his father encouraged Beruss to join the Illodian defense force, he instead chose to join the Rebel Alliance, ignoring his father's fears of Imperial reprisal against his homeworld.

Beruss was offered a position in the New Republic's Rogue Squadron shortly before the Battle of Brentaal IV, c. 4.75 ABY, despite having only completed two combat missions prior. During his tenure with the Rogues, he served as Soontir Fel's wingman and fell in love with fellow pilot Feylis Ardele.
