"When I was a kid, I liked to make up stories about Captain Ræh—about who she was and what planet she might have come from."

Dosmit Ræh was a female starfighter pilot who served as a captain in the Alliance to Restore the Republic. She flew an X-wing starfighter and led the Tierfon Yellow Aces.


Dosmit Ræh was a female individual who served as a captain in the Alliance to Restore the Republic, a rebel group that opposed the reign of Sheev Palpatine's Galactic Empire.[2] At some point, she led the Tierfon Yellow Aces,[3] a rebel starfighter squadron and piloted a T-65B X-wing starfighter.[2]

Years after the Galactic Civil War, Ræh's flight helmet was recovered by a young desert scavenger on Jakku named Rey. When Rey was a girl, Ræh became an important figure in Rey's life, with the young scavenger dreaming up stories about what Ræh was like and where she might have come from. Rey created a fighter pilot doll using a flight suit she recovered from a cargo container, and she often wore Ræh's flight helmet. Together, Rey and "Ræh" went on adventures by exploring Rey's home, the downed All Terrain Armored Transport called Hellhound Two, as well as the sands outside of the AT-AT. Rey eventually grew out of playing with the doll, but she kept the memory of Ræh alive by keeping the doll and her helmet in her possession throughout her years on Jakku.[1]
