Captain Russ Grimblade was one of the leaders of the Hidden Daggers, a pirate organization in the Corellian system at the time of the Galactic Civil War.

Grimblade was a skilled pilot, last seen flying an X-wing starfighter. He wore red and black colored R.I.S. armor.

When the Hidden Daggers attacked more and more freighters and even CorSec pilots in the Corellian system in 1 ABY, CorSec Sergeant Rhea ordered one of his pilots to take out their leaders. The pilot destroyed several Hidden Daggers starfighters until the pirates decided to send Grimblade to bring the CorSec pilot down. Grimblade engaged the pilot with his X-wing but was shot down and killed.
