- "My colleague Davin is also a good friend. My closest. We trained together at the Academy but he was ultimately stationed elsewhere."
A male Human, Davin, trained as a stormtrooper cadet at the Imperial Academy on the planet of Carida. While training there, Davin and another cadet, later designated TK329, became good friends. They parted in 4 BBY after their admittance into the Stormtrooper Corps because they were stationed at different locations. Three years later, TK329 still considered Davin to be his closest friend.
Behind the scenes
Davin was mentioned in a tweet from TK329's in-universe Twitter account. The account was created in 2009 as a tie-in to the then-upcoming novel Death Troopers, by Joe Schreiber. This character shares a first name with Davin Felth, a stormtrooper from the short story When the Desert Wind Turns: The Stormtrooper's Tale. Although both Davins trained at the Academy of Carida and were active in the same timeframe, there is no explicit connection between them.
