- "Direct hit!"
"But no damage."
- ―Bastian and Ello Asty during the Starkiller Base battle
Bastian was a human male lieutenant and starfighter pilot of the Resistance during its conflict with the First Order. He participated in the assault on Starkiller Base as a member of Red Squadron, a group of T-70 X-wing starfighters. Flying as Red Four during the battle, Bastian was ordered by Poe Dameron to protect him and the other pilots. He later cheered along with the other surviving pilots after the assault turned out to be a success, and Starkiller Base was destroyed.
Personality and traits[edit | edit source]
A well admired and accomplished pilot, Bastian was an experienced professional and intelligent man. He was brave and dedicated to the cause of freedom, and felt strongly against all that the First Order stood for.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Jason Fry, the author of the novelization of Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi originally desired to show the pilots who flew with Dameron in The Force Awakens on a mission to explain their absence from the film, but he realized that the plotline couldn't have a payoff.
