Elyhek Rue was a male Human pilot who served the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War.[2]


During the war, Rue had flown with the Griffon Flight Wing, a Rebel squadron sent to fight the Imperial subjugation of Ralltiir. During the battle, they started an attack on the Devastator.[2]

In 0 BBY, he was present in the Great Temple on Yavin 4 during the briefing, where he sat next to Lepira and in front of Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles.

The name and initial backstory for Elyhek Rue was established by the Decipher, Inc. Star Wars Customizable Card Game. According to a Star Wars CCG fan site, Elyhek Rue was named as an anagram of Decipher employee Kyle Heuer,[4] who also developed the Sony Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game.
