- "So wanna meet my team? Kaz, meet Lin Gaava and Gorrak Wiles. Hardest-working crew this side of the Western Reaches."
- ―Jace Rucklin to Kazuda Xiono
Gorrak Wiles was a member of Jace Rucklin's racing team during the New Republic era, which included the human woman Lin Gaava. They had a reputation as fun-loving pranksters who had a lackadaisical attitude towards work aboard the Colossus platform on the planet Castilon.
Wiles and his associates took an interest in the newcomer Kazuda Xiono, an undercover Resistance spy who worked as a mechanic at Jarek Yeager's repair station. Taking advantage of Xiono's dissatisfaction with his employer Yeager, Rucklin and his associates befriended Xiono, inviting him to have fun with them. Gorrak quipped about hard work and remarked that Yeager was a strange boss for not giving breaks.
Shortly later, Gorrak and Lin watched from the platform while Rucklin and Xiono raced on speeder bikes in the sea. When Xiono's bike malfunctioned and sunk into the ocean, Rucklin rescued him, gaining Xiono's trust. After Xiono left with his employer Yeager, Rucklin thanked Gorrak and Lin for sabotaging the bike since they had gained Xiono's trust.
Later, Gorrak, Lin, and Rucklin were working on Rucklin racer when Xiono visited Rucklin's hangar. Gorrak expressed sympathy for Xiono, who was having a difficult time with Yeager. Gorrak and Rucklin told Xiono they could use some Corellian hyperfuel, which Gorrak described as a "hot sauce." Rucklin subsequently convince Xiono to allow him to visit Yeager's trophy room where he stole a canister of Corellian hyperfuel. When Ruckling returned, Wiles and Lin praised their boss for the heist.
Gorrak and Lin were present when Rucklin fired up his racer with hyperfuel. Before Rucklin could depart, Xiono arrived and tried to warn Rucklin of the danger of flying with hyperfuel. A tussle ensued. Xiono managed to rescue an unwilling Rucklin but Rucklin's racer was destroyed. After BB-8 and Yeager rescued Xiono and Rucklin, Gorrak and Lin silently supported Rucklin when he lambasted Xiono for destroying his racer. Xiono countered by charging Rucklin with stealing the hyperfuel, which Rucklin publicly denied.
