Kurksel Gartfran was a human male who served as a commander in the Resistance. While he did not support the New Republic, Gartfran joined the Resistance to fight against the First Order, which he saw as worse. Fiercely independent and a born survivalist, the Resistance's base in the jungles of Ajan Kloss appealed to Gartfran, as he felt at home in the absence of civilization.[1] In 35 ABY,[2] he was present in the base as the Jedi-in-training Rey and her allies prepared to depart for the planet Pasaana. As the protocol droid C-3PO said farewell to the astromech droid R2-D2 before departing, Gartfran was sat on a log in front of the X-wing fighter of pilot Poe Dameron, speaking with Vober Dand and another member of the Resistance's Ground Logistics Division.[3]

  2. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary states that the events of Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker take place thirty-five years after the Battle of Yavin. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Yavin to 0 BBY, the events of The Rise of Skywalker, which includes the Gartfran's appearance, must occur in 35 ABY.
