Biography[edit | edit source]
New Republic service[edit | edit source]
In 34 ABY, during the Cold War, Sion served in the New Republic Defense Force's Starfighter Corps as the pilot of a T-85 X-wing starfighter. He, along with fellow pilots Kazuda Xiono and Mia Gabon, were sent on a mission to rendezvous with Commander Poe Dameron of the Resistance in order to deliver intelligence. However, the three pilots were ambushed by Major Elrik Vonreg of the First Order, and he and Gabon were concerned that the mission would fail. Xiono ordered him and Gabon to flee into hyperspace while he covered them, reasoning that the mission could be completed just as well by one pilot, and promising to be right behind them. After the mission, Xiono disappeared and Sion believed he didn't make it. In actuality, he joined the Resistance and became a spy on the supertanker fuel depot Colossus.
Joining the Resistance[edit | edit source]
By the time of the blockade of Dantooine, the squadron had been decimated. Doza's husband, Captain Imanuel Doza, allowed them to travel to the Colossus for a mission. Once aboard, Sion was reunited with Xiono.
Jade Squadron and the Aces then joined forces to rescue Resistance recruits from Dantooine. The squadron traveled there and fought off a squadron of TIE fighters, although one Resistance shuttle was destroyed. They then returned to the Colossus, where Imanuel Doza pledged the station's support for their cause.
Soon after, the citizens of the Colossus came face-to-face with the First Order in one last battle. Sion, along with Jade and Ace Squadron, defended the old station and blew up Commander Pyre's and Agent Tierny's Star Destroyer. Sion survived the battle, and rejoined with Kaz and others at Aunt Z's bar, celebrating their victory over the First Order.
