Bril Parry was the chief duty officer assigned to the communications station on board the MC80a Star Cruiser Naritus. Together with Rogue Squadron pilot Wedge Antilles, Parry witnessed the destruction of Thanta Zilbra during the Starbuster Plot. The Naritus had been assigned to direct a fleet of shuttles and freighters to evacuate the system, just in case, but until the moment when the Thanta Zilbra star went nova, few had taken the threat seriously. He had won the respect of Captain Genkal and was expected to replace him eventually as captain of the Naritus.
