Pao was a male Drabatan born on the planet Pipada in 31 BBY. He studied structural dynamics and wished to become an engineer, but he gave up his possible career to join the Rebellion after Imperial occupation began. He would soon become a Corporal for the Rebellion. His first known mission was a demolition job to destroy Foerost communications tower. In 0 BBY Pao joined Rogue One on a mission to steal the Death Star plans from Scarif. After Blue Squadron entered the atmosphere, Pao was killed before the Death troopers arrived on the shore.

Behind the scenesEdit
Pao is a character in the anthology film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. According to Jake Lunt Davies, Pao originated from a sketch for a character in the 2015 film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens who never made it into the final cut. He was originally designed with long spiky hair and a large mouth. When it was decided to use the character for Rogue One, it was concluded that his look didn't fit with the military angle, so Davies replaced Pao's hair with a kind of kepi but he opted to keep his big mouth. Eventually, director Gareth Edwards agreed to use Pao in the Battle of Scarif.
