- "There's…too many of them!"
- ―Gureni Telsij
Gureni Telsij was a male human who served as a Lieutenant in the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. At the Battle of Endor, he flew a BTL-A4 Y-wing assault starfighter/bomber in Gray Squadron. Moments after stating that there were too many enemy ships, his Y-wing was struck by enemy fire, killing him.
Behind the scenesEdit
The actor who portrayed Telsij has been identified as Eiji Kusuhara, who also starred in Eyes Wide Shut and died in 2010.
The Star Wars databank misidentified him as fellow Y-wing pilot Ekelarc Yong, incorrectly using a photo of Telsij, on closer inspection the two pilot helmets differ in paint design and the actors are different.
