"I don't think he's ever been on time for anything in his whole life."
Han Solo, about Dravis[src]

Dravis was a former Imperial pilot, and the chief lieutenant of smuggler kingpin Billey. His father was a pilot in the elite Scimitar assault wing.


"He is our local boy, Dravis. He'a a bit of a scoundrel, but he'll teach you to fly just fine."
Mayor Mikdanyell Guh'rantt, to a spacer[src]

After he graduated from the Imperial Academy, it was rumored that Dravis stole a shuttle and fled to the Outer Rim to avoid supporting a child he had fathered.[3]

During 1 ABY, Dravis was one of the smugglers in Talon Karrde's early version of Smugglers' Alliance. He operated out of the Mos Eisley cantina on Tatooine, and tasked another Smugglers' Alliance pilot with a series of missions. These missions involved defending the Tatoo system from Black Sun starfighters, and securing shipments from Commerce Raiders and other aggressive entities.[2]

Dravis' M22-T

Later, Dravis agreed to grant passage for a female entertainer named Ex and a Sullustan named Sh'ira to the city of Coronet on Corellia for 100,000 credits. After Ex killed an Imperial stormtrooper outside the Mos Eisley Spaceport in anger, Ex and her friend were desperate to escape the planet in order to evade arrest. After receiving payment, Dravis carried both individuals aboard his M22-T Krayt gunship.[4]

Dravis was also the friend of a more famous ex-Imperial smuggler, Han Solo. When Han set out in 9 ABY to hire smugglers to help alleviate the New Republic's shortfall of freighters and pilots, it was Dravis that Han contacted first. Dravis gave Han the New Republic's first warning about Grand Admiral Thrawn, though he was unaware of the actual identity of the new Imperial leader. He also let Han know that the low-key Talon Karrde actually ran the largest smuggling organization in the galaxy.

Later, Dravis was assigned by Karrde to help track down Thrawn's secret Waylandcloning facility]].
