"Direct hit!"
"But no damage."
―Bastian and Ello Asty during the Starkiller Base battle[src]

Bastian was a human male lieutenant and starfighter pilot of the Resistance during its conflict with the First Order. He participated in the assault on Starkiller Base as a member of Red Squadron, a group of T-70 X-wing fighters. Flying as Red Four during the battle, Bastian was ordered by Poe Dameron to protect him and the other pilots. He later cheered along with the other surviving pilots after the assault turned out to be a success, and Starkiller Base was destroyed.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Bastian is portrayed by Tosin Cole in the 2015 Star Wars film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams and written by Lawrence Kasdan.

Jason Fry, the author of the novelization of Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi originally desired to show the pilots who flew with Dameron in The Force Awakens on a mission to explain their absence from the film, but he realized that the plotline couldn't have a payoff.[2]
