Ghosts of the Rebellion
Karn was a typical pilot of the Rebellion: The best flyer from the backwater village where he’d grown up, chafing under Imperial rule. Once joining up with the Alliance, however, Karn soon discovered his piloting skills only ranked as mediocre, though his abilities as a mechanic showed more potential.
As with most Rebel soldiers, Karn was cross-trained in both skills and could hold his own behind the stick of starfighter or under its hood.
When the Rebel outpost on Arbra was brought down to a skeleton crew, Karn remained behind.
