- ―Ekelarc Yong's last words
Biography[edit | edit source]
Ekelarc Yong flew as Gray Three during the Battle of Endor under Gray Leader Horton Salm. After following the Millennium Falcon into the Imperial Fleet, Yong's Y-wing starfighter was crippled by two TIE fighters. However, in a final act of defiance, he managed to guide his inflamed fighter to crash into the hull of an Imperial-class Star Destroyer.

Though shown onscreen with a bat symbol on the chin of his helmet, the databank misidentified him with the picture of another Y-wing pilot, Gureni Telsij, who was seen in the initial stages of the battle.
