"I will not tell you that Lujayne or Carter or Pirgi or the others would want you to keep fighting, or that your fighting will make their sacrifice worth it."
―Wedge Antilles, speaking at a memorial shortly after Carter's death[2]

Carter was an individual who served the New Republic as a sentry[2] in 6 ABY[1] at Rogue Squadron's base on the planet Talasea. During an Imperial raid on Talasea designed to eliminate Rogue Squadron, an elite New Republic starfighter squadron, Carter was killed along with five other sentries, which included Pirgi, as well as Rogue Squadron pilot Lujayne Forge. Shortly after, a memorial was held on the EF76 Nebulon-B escort frigate Reprieve. At the memorial, Commander Wedge Antilles of Rogue Squadron spoke in commemoration of those who were killed during the raid. Shortly after the speech, the bodies of Carter, along with the other five sentries and Forge, were placed into caskets and sent drifting towards Talasea's sun, Morobe.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Carter was first mentioned in the 1996 novel X-Wing: Rogue Squadron, written by Michael A. Stackpole.[2]
