Cova Nell[2] was a human female who served as a transport[1] and starfighter[3] pilot in the naval branch of the Resistance during their war against the First Order.[1] She and Pamich Nerro Goode co-piloted one of the thirty U-55 orbital loadlifter that were used to evacuate the MC85 Star Cruiser Raddus[2] after the First Order attacked the Resistance fleet. Her vessel's passengers included General Leia Organa and Captain Poe Dameron; it was one of the transports that made it to the surface of the planet Crait.[1] During planetfall they were comforted by General Organa, who reflected that the pilots would soon feel survivors guilt.[3] On Crait, the Resistance made a last stand against the First Order in an old Rebel Alliance outpost, with those who survived escaping in the YT-1300 light freighter known as the Millennium Falcon.[1] She wore a white helmet with a yellow flight suit made of flame-resistant material with a white harness and brown boots.[2] An Aurebesh inscription on her pilot helmet read "Hello nasty".[1] Nell had fair skin and brown eyes.[2]
