The Wexley family was a human family that lived on the planet Akiva during the Age of the Empire and the New Republic era. The family consisted of Brentin Lore Wexley, his wife Norra Wexley, and their son Temmin Wexley. The family was separated as a result of the Galactic Civil War. Members of the Wexley family were involved in the Alliance to Restore the Republic and its various incarnations including the New Republic and the Resistance.
History[edit | edit source]
Brentin Lore Wexley relayed hologram messages for the Rebel Alliance during the Age of the Empire. As a result, he was arrested by the Empire and imprisoned at Ashmead's Lock prison on Kashyyyk. Seeking to find her husband, Norra left their son Temmin in the care of his auntie Esmelle and her wife Shirene. Being bullied and having no friends, Temmin turned to his modified B1-series battle droid Mister Bones for companionship. Temmin came to resent his mother for leaving him behind and the Galactic Empire for taking away his father. Proving too difficult for his aunts to handle, Temmin returned to his family home but maintained contact with them.
During the Galactic Civil War, Norra became a Rebel Alliance starfighter pilot and later joined the New Republic Defense Fleet. Following the Battle of Endor, Norra returned to reunite and reconcile with her son. Following a difficult reunion, mother, son, and Mister Bones joined forces with the bounty hunter Jas Emari and the former Imperial loyalty officer Sinjir Rath Velus to instigate the rebellion on Akiva, which disrupted the Imperial Future Council's emergency summit on Akiva. Later, Norra and her son became Imperial hunters who hunted Imperial fugitives for the New Republic. Temmin also trained to become a New Republic starfighter pilot.
Norra and Temmin managed to find Brentin while helping the smuggler Han Solo infiltrate Ashmead's Lock prison to rescue his Wookiee co-pilot Chewbacca. However, Norra and Temmin were unable to fully reconcile with Brentin since he had been implanted with an inorganic biochip as part of Fleet Admiral Gallius Rax's plan to assassinate the New Republic leadership on Chandrila. Believing Grand Admiral Rae Sloane to be responsible for turning Brentin into a unwilling asasssin, Norra and Temmin along with Bones, Emari, and Sinjir embarked on a hunt for Sloane. Meanwhile, Brentin joined forces with Sloane to hunt down Rax.
Norra and Temmin saw action during the Battle of Jakku with Temmin flying as part of Wedge Antilles' Phantom Squadron. Brentin perished during the Battle of Jakku but was survived by his wife and son. Mister Bones also perished during the fighting. Following the Galactic Civil War, Temmin later became a member of the New Republic precision air team on Hosnian Prime before leaving to join the Resistance, a paramilitary outfit created by Princess Leia Organa to protect the New Republic. During the Cold War, Temmin later rose to become the captain of Blue Squadron which saw action during the Battle of Takodana and the Battle of Starkiller Base.
