- "You brought your family here?"
"I did. Wanted to take them as far away from the fighting as I could. A place where the war will never find us. The farthest-flung nowhere rock I could find on a star map."
- ―Ergel and Corwin Ballast
The daughter of the civilian Corwin Ballast and his wife, Lynnta, resided in the city of Maborn on the world Mordal during the Galactic Civil War. Around 4 ABY, the daughter became immobilized during a firefight between rebels and Imperial forces in Maborn, and her parents' rescue efforts proved unsuccessful. After Lynnta and his daughter's deaths, a grieving Ballast traveled to the Inner Rim planet Jakku with a picture of his family in his boot to remember them.
Biography[edit | edit source]
A daughter was born to the civilian Corwin Ballast and his wife, Lynnta, by the time of the Galactic Civil War. Her parents settled with their child on the world Mordal in the city of Maborn. Around 4 ABY, the daughter became immobilized during a firefight between rebels and Imperial forces in Maborn. Her parents attempted to rescue her from the area of contention but were downed by blaster fire before they could reach her. Ballast recovered from his injuries and woke several weeks after the skirmish to find that his daughter and wife had died and been buried.
Grieved, Ballast kept his family's picture in his boot to remember them. He left Mordal to travel to the Inner Rim world of Jakku, a location he considered desolate enough for war to never reach. In the drinking establishment Ergel's Bar on Jakku, Ballast explained to the bartender Ergel that he had come to the bleak world for his family's sake, because it was far from the fighting.
Personality and traits[edit | edit source]

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary dates the reunion of Norra Wexley and Temmin Wexley on Akiva—which occurs during the rebellion on Akiva, according to Aftermath—to thirty years before the Hosnian Cataclysm, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 34 ABY. Aftermath also establishes that Corwin Ballast's daughter died on Mordal several weeks prior to Akiva's rebellion, thus placing her passing around 4 ABY.
