- "So wanna meet my team? Kaz, meet Lin Gaava and Gorrak Wiles. Hardest-working crew this side of the Western Reaches."
- ―Jace Rucklin to Kazuda Xiono
Lin Gaava was a human female who lived during the era of the New Republic. She worked as a mechanic on Jace Rucklin's team, on the Colossus platform on Castilon. Gaava had red hair, blue eyes and light skin. After the occupation of the Colossus, she eventually joined the First Order as a TIE pilot cadet.
Lin Gaava was a member of Jace Rucklin's racing team during the New Republic era, which included the male Sullustan Gorrak Wiles. They had a reputation as fun-loving troublemakers and idlers aboard the Colossus platform on the ocean world of Castilon. Gaava frequented the Colossus marketplace and docks.
Lin and her associates Rucklin and Wiles encountered the undercover Resistance spy Kazuda Xiono, who worked as a mechanic at Jarek Yeager's repair station. Taking advantage of Xiono's dissatisfaction with his demanding employer, Rucklin and his associates befriended Xiono, appealing to his love for racing and fun. Lin also claimed that they were free to take leave anytime.
Gaava and Wiles later watched on the platform as Rucklin and Xiono raced on speeder bikes over the sea. Under Rucklin's instructions, Lin and Gorrak had sabotaged Xiono's speeder bike so that Rucklin could rescue him and gain Xiono's trust. Rucklin's plan worked, and he thanked Lin and Gorrak for their work.
Later, Xiono visited Jace Rucklin's hangar, where he found Lin, Gorrak, and Rucklin working on Rucklin's racer. Xiono had ignored his friend Neeku Vozo's advice that Rucklin and his associates were little more than idlers and troublemakers. Lin was stripping Rucklin's racer of "unnecessary" systems to reduce the ship's weight.
Rucklin then convinced Xiono to allow him to visit Yeager's trophy room so that he could steal a canister of Corellian hyperfuel. When Rucklin returned, Lin and Gorrak praised Rucklin for executing his heist. Lin also warned Ruckling to be careful as he poured hyperfuel into his racer's tank.
After Xiono discovered the theft, he returned to the hangar. Lin and Gorrak watched as Xiono remonstrated with Rucklin, who had already injected the hyperfuel into the racer's engines. Xiono managed to rescue an unwilling Rucklin, but his racer was destroyed. Lin and Gorrak supported Rucklin when he chastised Xiono for destroying his ship. Xiono countered that Rucklin had stolen Yeager's hyperfuel, something which Rucklin denied.
In the backgroundEdit
While the BB-series astromech droid BB-8 was searching for Xiono, Gaava was frequenting the Colossus marketplace. During Kragan Gorr's Warbirds' second raid on the Colossus, Lin and Gorrak took advantage of the chaos to salvage supplies from the marketplace. Lin also frequented the Colossus marketplace, which was a familiar stomping ground of other Colossus residents including Neeku Voz, Bucket, and Xiono.
Gaava continued frequenting the streets of the Colossus during the First Order's occupation of the platform. Later, the First Order took an interest in Lin and her friend Rucklin. While walking through the corridors of Doza Tower, they crossed paths with First Order Security Bureau Agent Tierny and Tamara Ryvora, whom Tierny was trying to recruit into the First Order. After joining the First Order alongside Rucklin and Ryvora, Gaava became a TIE pilot cadet, and participated in training exercises with them under the command of Lieutenant Galek.
Personality and traitsEdit
Lin Gaava was a female human with red hair, blue eyes, and fair skin. Gaava and her associates had a reputation for laziness, humor, and playing pranks among the citizens of the Colossus. Lin liked the fact that she and her colleagues could take days off and not work like droids. She and Gorrak shared their leader Rucklin's willingness to steal and exploit his friendship with Xiono to advance Rucklin's racing ambitions. This included sabotaging Xiono's speeder bike so that Gorrak could gain his trust.
As opportunists, Lin and Gorrak took advantage of a pirate raid on the Colossus to salvage supplies from the Colossus marketplace.
