"Winged Gundark" was the nickname of a TIE pilot in the Imperial Navy who attained the nickname for[1] an impressive number of career kills[2] in high-altitude battles[1] by 3 ABY. By that year's Imperial occupation of the planet Bespin,[3] Winged Gundark had joined the Imperial Obsidian Squadron, flying under the call sign of Obsidian 7 and piloting a TIE/LN starfighter modified for upper atmosphere maneuvers.[1]

Following Bespin's occupation, the YT-1300 light freighter Millennium Falcon managed to escape from the planet's Cloud City,[4] resulting in Obsidian Squadron's pursuit of the freighter into space.[2] However, Obsidian Squadron was ultimately unsuccessful in their pursuit, with the Millennium Falcon escaping Imperial capture.[4] At some point, Winged Gundark, accompanied by at least one other TIE/LN starfighter, flew over an astronomical object, with a large starship above the starfighters.[5] Winged Gundark's nickname was shared with[1] the gundark, a large bipedal furry primate species from the planet Vanqor.[6]
