"I don't have the Force. I have something better."
"Do not say 'friends.' Do not be such a sap, Mattis Banz."
―Mattis Banz and Lorica Demaris[src]

Mattis Banz was a human male who was a member of J-Squadron, a training group within the Resistance against the First Order. Born on the farming planet of Durkteel in 20 ABY, Banz grew up as an orphan, residing under the care of a Phirmist temple, where he heard tales of the Rebellion that overthrew the Galactic Empire. During this time, he developed a heroic personality, dreaming of becoming like Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, or Admiral Gial Ackbar, and he often helped younger orphans in need.[1]

In 34 ABY, Banz's actions were noticed by Resistance recruiter Antha Mont, and the orphan joined the Resistance, training to become a pilot in a group of cadets known as J-Squadron. A month after arriving at the Resistance base on D'Qar, Banz and a few other members of J-Squadron caused an accident which could have resulted in the deaths of several starfighter pilots. As a punishment, Admiral Ackbar sent them on a scavenging mission to Vodran. However, while on Vodran, Banz and the group encountered stormtroopers of the First Order and were taken captive.[1]
