"What can we do against these things?"
"Just stay alive!"
―Wrobie Tyce and Poe Dameron during the Battle of Exegol[src]

Lieutenant Wrobie Tyce was a human female pilot serving the Resistance. The wife of the human Larma D'Acy, Tyce served as a courier pilot until D'Acy decided to join the Resistance movement, a venture that Tyce not only supported but also joined, flying in Cobalt Squadron in an RZ-2 A-wing interceptor. She escaped being killed along with the rest of her squadron at the retreat from D'Qar in 34 ABY, as she was away on a separate mission.

In 35 ABY, she was present on the moon Ajan Kloss for multiple meetings, including when the Battle of Exegol against the Sith Eternal was planned. She went on to pilot her A-wing starfighter at the battle, which began roughly since the expected reinforcements had not yet arrived. Just as the situation seemed particularly dire, and Commander Poe Dameron was about to order a retreat, the Citizens' Fleet arrived, allowing the Resistance to defeat the Star Destroyers of the Sith Eternal. Tyce later celebrated the victory with her wife back on Ajan Kloss.

Biography[]

Joining and serving the Resistance[]

"So, how do the ships take off?"
"They use a signal from a navigation tower, like this one."
―Wrobie Tyce and Poe Dameron[src]

Tyce pilots her RZ-2 A-wing through an asteroid field.

The wife of the human Larma D'Acy, Wrobie Tyce was formerly a courier pilot operating on[2] her homeworld[1] of Warlentta.[2] When D'Acy decided to join the Resistance movement, Tyce was in full support, and she even decided to come along with her, changing from being a commercial pilot to one of combat. She went on to fly in the Resistance's Cobalt Squadron, becoming a lieutenant and helping the unit defend Fabrin and the Nanth'ri Trade Route.[2] Tyce and D'Acy were then among several married Resistance couples.[1]

Tyce was not present at the Resistance's retreat from the planet D'Qar[2] in 34 ABY,[4] as she was away on a mission with fellow pilot Snap Wexley.[5] The rest of her squadron was annihilated during the retreat, and Tyce was later reassigned under the command of Wexley. Afterward, Tyce was greatly relieved when she learned that her wife had survived the Battle of Crait,[2] and she reunited with D'Acy following the battle.[5] At some point, she flew her starfighter through an asteroid field.[6]

Wrobie Tyce at the meeting

In 35 ABY,[7] Tyce was stationed on the Resistance's base on the moon Ajan Kloss,[3] which allowed for her to spend time with her wife after several months on separate missions. On the moon, she mentored other pilots.[1] She was present when it was revealed that Emperor Palpatine had returned and was hiding in the Unknown Regions on a world called Exegol, and she later participated in a briefing where the Battle of Exegol was planned, during which she asked General Poe Dameron how the Xyston-class Star Destroyers of the Sith Eternal's fleet, the Final Order, were able to take off. Dameron explained that they used a signal from a navigation tower. The former stormtrooper Finn further explained that the ground team would take down the tower, preventing the Star Destroyers from leaving the atmosphere.[3] While by her A-wing interceptor, Tyce was given a goodbye kiss by D'Acy.[8]

Battle of Exegol[]

The battle commences[]

"The navigation tower has been deactivated."
―Wrobie Tyce[src]

Tyce in her A-wing at the Battle of Exegol

Tyce and the Resistance starfighters flew to Exegol using instructions provided by the Jedi-in-training Rey.[3] When they arrived at Exegol, Tyce pointed out that neither the Falcon nor any additional allies had yet to arrive. She flew in her A-wing during the battle[8] and was part of the attack force that intended on destroying the navigation tower. However, as she pointed out when they approached it, it was deactivated upon their arrival.[3]

Tyce further explained that that meant that the tower was no longer transmitting a signal.[9] Finn discovered that the navigation signal had been transferred to come from the Sith fleet's command ship,[3] the Resurgent-class Star Destroyer Steadfast.[2] When he suggested that that ship would be their drop zone, Tyce questioned his intention to launch a ground invasion on a Star Destroyer,[3] unbelieving.[9] Finn admitted that he did not want to, but there was no other choice.[3]

Tyce and the other wings covered the troop carrier as it landed on the Steadfast. Later in the battle, the Resistance pilots began to doubt that any reinforcements would be arriving. When Dameron was asked by the Mon Calamari pilot Aftab Ackbar what they would do, he told them that they would need to hit the Sith Star Destroyers' cannons themselves. Tyce wondered what their fighters would be able to do against Destroyers of their size; Dameron responded that they would just try to stay alive.[3] When he asked if they were with him, Tyce responded that she was.[9]

Reinforcements arrive[]

Tyce: "General, you won't make it."
Dameron: "Trust me, I'm fast!"
Calrissian: "Not as fast as this ship."
―Tyce, Dameron, and Calrissian discuss saving Finn and Jannah[src]

Tyce and D'Acy reunite on Ajan Kloss.

When many of the Resistance's fighters began to be shot down by the Sith TIE fighters, Tyce asked Dameron if they needed to retreat. Just as Dameron prepared to make such an order, the reinforcements of the Citizens' Fleet were brought by General Lando Calrissian,[8] and the Steadfast was destroyed by Finn and another former First Order stormtrooper, Jannah. When Dameron attempted to save the pair, who were still on the command ship, Tyce warned that he would not be able to make it back in time. Dameron insisted he was fast, but Calrissian flew in to do the job, reminding Dameron that he was not as fast as the general's ship: the Millennium Falcon.[3]

Tyce returned to Ajan Kloss with the rest of the Resistance and participated in the celebrations there along with D'Acy, whom she hugged and kissed[3] for a long time.[9] She also danced about during the celebrations.[3]

Personality and traits[]

"Alpha Leader, what are you doing?"
―Tyce worriedly asks what Dameron is trying to do[src]

Tyce's flight helmet

Tyce supported her wife, D'Acy, even enough to join the Resistance with her. After the Battle of Crait, Tyce was very relieved to hear that D'Acy had survived.[2] A particularly aggressive pilot, she had no trouble handling enemies at close range.[10] During the Battle of Exegol, when Commander Dameron asked his starfighter pilots if they were with him, she assured him that she was without hesitating.[9]

When Dameron tried to save Finn and Jannah by himself, Tyce was worried for him and tried to tell him to stop.[3] Tyce was a human female with black hair, brown skin, and brown eyes,[2] and she stood 1.65 meters (5 feet, five inches) tall.[1]

Skills and abilities[]

Originally just a courier pilot, Tyce was able to adapt her flying skills to become a starfighter pilot.[2]

Equipment[]

Tyce utilized a green-and-white RZ-2 A-wing interceptor.[6] She also wore a flight helmet that bore the logo of Cobalt Squadron[2] but had room for a new decal. She donned a flight suit that had a utility belt, emergency oxygen tube, and equipment pocket. The suit was further covered in a flak vest and was accompanied by black boots.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Wrobie Tyce first appeared in the 2019 sequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker, where she was portrayed by Vinette Robinson. Her surname was revealed in the credits,[3] and her first name was given in the accompanying reference book Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary, written by Pablo Hidalgo.[2] The graphic novel adaptation for The Rise of Skywalker slightly modifies Tyce's dialogue,[11] changing "The navigation tower has been deactivated"[3] to "The navigation tower! It's been deactivated!"[11]

The celebratory kiss between Tyce and D'Acy, notable as the first on-screen LGBTQ+ kiss in the Star Wars films, was censored in the United Arab Emirates[12] and Singapore.[13]
