"Get Surrel out of there, he cant survive those odds."
"No, but he can buy them a little more time."
―Col Takbright and Wenton Chan, moments before Surrel's demise[src]

Ralo Surrel[4] was a human male pilot who served in the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War.[3] During the war, Major Surrel served as Red Eleven and was a wingmate to Red Leader, Garven Dreis.[4] In that capacity, he was killed during the Battle of Yavin.[2]

At some point prior to 0 BBY, Surrel was scheduled Shift Cycle 1 of an X-wing flight patrol mission along with Cmdr. Garven Dreis (Red Leader). Their mission was to route from Yavin to Gordian Trace Relays, perform a flyby of surrounding space, then after verifying visual and sensor all clear, perform close uplink of passive relay recordings.[5]
