"'LS-607' requesting reinforcements!"
―Valon Rudhor[src]
Baron Valon Rudhor, codenamed "LS-607", was a TIE fighter pilot in service to the Galactic Empire on Lothal several years prior to the Battle of Yavin. He and several stormtroopers were assaulted by Garazeb Orrelios when the latter became lost in the streets of Lothal's Capital City. Rudhor then attempted to call for reinforcements, but his request was met with indifference by his commanding officer. Sometime later his TIE fighter was defeated by the Ghost and found in the fields by local con artist Ezra Bridger, who pretended to try to help him in order to rob him, and sell pieces of the ship in the black market.

Biography

"Hey, don't say thank you or anything."
"Thank you? Please! I'm an officer of the Imperial Navy. I didn't need your help!
"
―Ezra Bridger and Valon Rudhor[src]

Baron Valon Rudhor, a Human male, was a TIE fighter pilot in the Imperial Navy in the years before the Battle of Yavin. His codename was "LS-607."[1] After establishing factories on the Outer Rim planet Lothal, the ship production company Sienar Fleet Systems was able to convince Rudhor to travel to Lothal and test out products that had been built in Lothal's most prosperous factories. Rudhor's decision to go to Lothal was used by the Galactic Empire in HoloNet News propaganda reports.[3]

On Lothal, while inspecting a TIE fighter on a landing platform in Capital City, Rudhor was confronted by Garazeb Orrelios, who was being pursued by two stormtroopers. Rudhor was briefly knocked out after being tossed across the platform by the Lasat warrior, but came to once more when a blaster slid towards him, after it had been knocked out of the hands of a stormtrooper. The TIE pilot regained his footing as Orrelios fought with a small squad of stormtroopers, before pointing the blaster at the Lasat and calling for reinforcements. The Imperial commander who replied questioned how many intruders were on the landing pad, leading Rudhor to balk at the question and demand reinforcements.[1]

While waiting for other Imperial troops to arrive, Rudhor attempted to shoot Orrelios, but the Lasat was able to evade him. Orrelios managed to make it to the top of the TIE fighter, and from there he grabbed Rudhor and threw him back across the landing area. The stormtrooper reinforcements arrived shortly thereafter, but their firefighter with Orrelios triggered an explosion when their blaster fire hit a fuel leak on the TIE fighter, causing it to explode. Rudhor survived the explosion, while Orrelios also managed to escape.[1]

Sometime after the incident with Orrelios, Rudhor flew a TIE fighter that engaged in battle with the Ghost, the ship on which the Lasat served. The Ghost shot Rudhor's fighter down, and the fighter crashed outside Capital City while the Ghost escaped. The crash was witnessed by Ezra Bridger, an orphaned Lothal citizen who lived in a nearby tower. When Bridger approached and asked if Rudhor was still alive, Rudhor reacted angrily to Bridger's presence, telling him to move away from the TIE fighter as it was property of the Empire. Bridger managed to open the TIE fighter's hatch and jumped into the fighter, pretending to help the pilot but secretly stealing parts from the ship to sell on the black market. Bridger then stole Rudhor's helmet and left the pod. Rudhor fired the fighter's laser cannons at Bridger, but the boy was able to use the the Force to evade the blaster fire, though neither he nor Rudhor knew that Bridger used the Force. Bridger fired back with his energy slingshot and knocked Rudhor unconscious, giving the boy an opportunity to escape unharmed.[2]
