Danbit Brun was a human male lieutenant in the Galactic Empire who served as a shield relay systems operator onboard the Shield Gate positioned above the planet Scarif. His job required him to carefully monitor field dynamics to prevent dangerous build up from stellar wind aurorae. In 0 BBY, he was killed when the remnants of the Persecutor and the Intimidator, two Star Destroyers destroyed in the Battle of Scarif, drifted into the gate and destroyed it. Brun had fair skin and gray hair and wore a black version of the Imperial technician's uniform with a cap.
