C'ai Threnalli was an Abednedo male who flew in the Resistance Starfighter Corps of the Resistance's military during their conflict with the First Order. Following the Assault on Starkiller Base in the year 34 ABY, Threnalli was amongst the personnel in the Resistance base on the planet D'Qar who waved off the YT-1300 light freighter known as the Millennium Falcon as it set off to find the missing Jedi Master Luke Skywalker on the planet Ahch-To. Threnalli had brown skin and hair and black eyes. He wore an orange flight suit. Shortly after the Resistance evacuated the base on D'Qar, Threnalli flew as Commander Poe Dameron's wingman.
Behind the scenesEdit
C'ai Threnalli first appeared in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, where actor Paul Kasey appeared wearing the costume of Ello Asty in one of the final scenes of the movie. As Asty's death had been shown earlier in the film, Lucasfilm Story Group member Pablo Hidalgo stated that the Abednedo seen waving off the Falcon in that scene must be a separate pilot. The design for Threnalli was created by creature concept designer Jake Lunt Davies, while his costume was made by costume designner Michael Kaplan.
This character went unnamed until appearing in the "Escape from Starkiller Base" DLC expansion for the video game LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which starred Threnalli, voiced by Christian Simpson, crashing in an T-70 X-wing fighter during the Assault on Starkiller and then fighting through First Order forces and escaping the planet's surface alongside fellow Resistance members Lieutenant Wright and R3-X3. Story Group member Leland Chee confirmed on Twitter that the idea was for Threnalli to be the unnamed pilot from the film.
