"Get in! Get in!"
―Mefran to Rebel forces hiding from Imperial troops[2]

Jav Mefran served as a wilderness fighter specialist with the 4th SpecForce Regiment of the Rebel Alliance Special Forces. When the Rebel Alliance relocated from Dantooine to Yavin 4, Mefran assisted in clearing out the jungle brush which surrounded the Great Temple.[1]

As a corporal, Mefran became a member of the Rogue One squad, and fought at the Battle of Scarif.[2] Although he had misgivings about the mission, Mefran masked them by focusing on the beautiful tropical environment of Scarif, having an affinity for rainforest surroundings.[1] As the fighting progressed from Landing Platform Nine, Corporal Mefran remained with the Zeta-class Heavy Cargo Shuttle SW-0608 alongside Corporal Stordan Tonc and other Pathfinders. Initially hiding from Imperial reinforcements, he helped defend the vessel when the Empire came to investigate, and exchanged blaster fire with enemy troops outside the shuttle. However, although Bodhi Rook was able to open communications with the Alliance Fleet above the planet, Mefran was shot by Imperial forces.[2]
