Harb Binli[1] was a human male pilot[4] from Eriadu[1] who served in the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War.[4] During the war, Cadet Binli served as Red Seven.[1][5]

After returning from the Mission to Eadu, Jyn Erso brought information about the threat of the Death Star before the Alliance Cabinet, as well as a gathering of various military personnel, including Binli, who was standing closely to Erso and Bodhi Rook. Listening closely to the heated debate, the pilot acquiesced to Erso's plead of action. Soon after, he fought in the Battle of Scarif, during which his wingman and friend Pedrin Gaul was killed.[4] He later served in the Battle of Yavin in which he himself was killed in action.[3]

At some point prior to 0 BBY, Binli was scheduled Shift Cycle 2 of an X-wing flight patrol mission along with fellow pilots Cdt. Pedrin Gaul (Red Five) and Lt. Nozzo Naytaan (Red Nine). Their mission was to route from Yavin to Gordian Trace Relays, perform a flyby of surrounding space, then after verifying visual and sensor all clear, perform close uplink of passive relay recordings.[6]
