- "I just wanted you to know that, despite what I’m sure were Commander Thrawn’s best efforts, I wasn’t tossed out of the Academy. In fact, things worked out very well for me. Commandant Deenlark was able to pull enough strings to get the three of us transferred to starfighter training at Skystrike Academy."
- ―Gimm, to Eli Vanto
Gimm was a human male lieutenant and TIE fighter pilot in the Imperial Navy under the command of Thrawn. He participated in the Cyphar Incident. Eli Vanto later learned that he was one of the trouble-makers who assaulted Thrawn at the Royal Imperial Academy.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- The Del Rey timeline places Thrawn before A New Dawn. Star Wars Rebels: The Visual Guide dates Kanan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla's first meeting in A New Dawn to six years before Star Wars Rebels, which according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, begins in 5 BBY. This means A New Dawn takes place in 11 BBY, so the beginning of Thrawn must occur by 11 BBY. At the beginning of Thrawn, Gimm was a student at the Royal Imperial Academy. Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide states that the youngest Imperial Academies begin training Cadets is "13 standard years of age." Therefore, Gimm was born at least thirteen years earlier, by 24 BBY.
- In the reference book Ultimate Star Wars, it is stated that the TIE fighter pilots of the Galactic Empire were all humans.
