- "Wyl Lark, the beloved! Gift to the galaxy!"
- ―Sata Neek on Wyl Lark
Wyl Lark was born and raised on the planet Polyneus. During the Galactic Civil War, he became one of the Hundred and Twenty Polynean volunteers that left Polyneus to join the Alliance to Restore the Republic. Lark joined the Alliance Military as a member of Riot Squadron. During his time on Polyneus, Lark gained a gift for piloting by riding on sur-avka, flying creatures. During his flight training, he befriended his mentor.
After the Battle of Endor, Riot Squadron was assigned to the frigate Hellion's Dare on a scouting mission. They were hounded by the Aerie and elements of the Shadow Wing, leading to the destruction of the vessel, Riot Squadron, and Hound Squadron. Lark forced Chass na Chadic to retreat, and they were rescued by Agent Caern Adan's working group. The pair of pilots melded into Alphabet Squadron under Adan, Lieutenant Yrica Quell, and Kairos and Nath Tensent.

- "A youth spent on the backs of flying beasts on his peaceful, remote homeworld gave Wyl Lark a near-supernatural gift for piloting, and a well of kindness and empathy that has never run dry. But war is a precarious place for a soul as gentle as his."
- ―Del Rey on Twitter
