"Oh, yeah, I don't want one of those. They smell horrible."
―Dade Hetkins to Doctor Arsad referring to Ewoks[src]

Dade Hetkins was a male human soldier of the New Republic.


Battle of EndorEdit

Dade and his team were assigned to cleanup duty in the weeks after the destruction of the second death star. While on patrol, a single scout trooper threw a thermal detonator near Hetkins and it took off his leg. Luckily his team was able to triage his leg and save Dade's life.[1]

Dawn of the New RepublicEdit

After his injury, Dade found himself in the veteran hospital in Darropolis on Hosnian Prime under the care of Doctor Arsad. The doctor fit him up with a prosthetic foot to replace the one lost on Endor. Before allowing him to leave the doctor asks Dade a series of questions to verify his mental health. He gave lies to most of the questions eager to leave, but the doctor's FX-7 droid revealed Dade's deception. The doctor prescribed group therapy and a new droid, QT-9, as a companion for Dade.[1]

Personality and traitsEdit

Dade was not happy losing his leg on Endor and was also not thrilled with his new metal prosthetic though he would learn to live with it. Even though he had a poor outlook on life he genuinely did not have suicidal thoughts.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Dade Hetkins was a minor point-of-view character who first appeared in Chuck Wendig's 2016 Novel Aftermath: Life Debt.
