Lieutenant Elsek was a scout trooper in the Imperial Army. He was partners with Avarik since graduation from the Corulag academy. Elsek was often forced to cover for his partner's rash decisions. When Avarik was accosted by Han Solo, he signaled Elsek to go for help. As Elsek took off on his speeder bike, Chewbacca destroyed it with his bowcaster and the scout was propelled into the air.
