Jonas was a human male who served as a TIE fighter pilot captain in the Imperial Officer Corps and Imperial Starfighter Corps of the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War against the Alliance to Restore the Republic. He flew as part of Scimitar Squad, a TIE/sa bomber squadron in the Imperial Navy.[1] In 4 ABY,[2] Jonus was on board the Death Star II superweapon in the Endor system during the Battle of Endor, in which the Alliance Fleet launched an attack to destroy the Death Star.[3]

After the rebels had managed to successfully disable the superweapon's shields and gained the upper hand in the battle, alarms began blaring on the Death Star as personnel raced to evacuate. Alongside fellow Scythe Squad pilot Major Rhymer, Jonus ran through the corridors of the Death Star and passed by the Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker as the Jedi dragged his wounded father, Darth Vader, toward one of the Lambda-class T-4a shuttles parked nearby. Skywalker then had time to escape from the Death Star before it was completely destroyed by the Alliance.[3]
