"There's…too many of them!"
―Gureni Telsij[src]

Gureni Telsij was a male human who served as a Lieutenant[4] 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[3] in Gray Squadron.[4] Moments after stating that there were too many enemy ships, his Y-wing was struck by enemy fire, killing him.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

According to stage director Hilary Westlake, the actor who portrayed Telsij is likely to have been Eiji Kusuhara. Westlake was a close friend of Kusuhara's, and wrote the latter's obituary for The Guardian. After viewing footage of Telsij's scene from Return of the Jedi, Westlake told NPR that, "Albeit brief, I would say it is most certainly Eiji."[5]

The StarWars.com Databank incorrectly identified a photo of Ekelarc Yong, another Y-wing pilot seen in Return of the Jedi, as Telsij. Yong and Telsij wear different helmets, and are played by different actors.
