Biography[edit | edit source]
Gorrak Wiles was a member of Jace Rucklin's racing team during the New Republic era, which also 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.
Exploiting Xiono[edit | edit source]
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, Wiles and Gaava 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 Wiles and Gaava for sabotaging the bike since they had gained Xiono's trust.
Later, Wiles, Gaava, and Rucklin were working on Rucklin racer when Xiono visited Rucklin's hangar. Wiles expressed sympathy for Xiono, who was having a difficult time with Yeager. Wiles and Rucklin told Xiono they could use some Corellian hyperfuel, which Gorrak described as a "hot sauce". Rucklin subsequently convinced Xiono to allow him to visit Yeager's trophy room, where he stole a canister of Corellian hyperfuel. When Ruckling returned, Wiles and Gaava praised their boss for the heist.
Wiles and Gaava 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, Wiles and Gaava silently supported Rucklin when he lambasted Xiono for destroying his racer. Xiono countered by charging Rucklin with stealing the hyperfuel, which Rucklin publicly denied.
