Gale Torg was a human male sergeant assigned to guard and escort senators and dignitaries who visited the Alliance to Restore the Republic's headquarters in the Great Temple of Massassi on Yavin 4. He carried a DH-17 blaster pistol and wore the uniform of Alderaanian consular security, which featured a service helmet with flash visor and integral comlink and a multi-pocketed spacer vest of Corellian cut.[1]

In 0 BBY,[2] the Alliance managed to destroy the Galactic Empire's planet-killing superweapon, the Death Star, in the Yavin system. During the ceremony held to honor the heroes of Yavin at the Great Temple, Torg served as a Rebel Honor Guard, standing in front of the audience room's entrance.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

The character of Gale Torg was inspired by Galen Torg, a Rebel trooper introduced in Galaxy Guide 1: A New Hope. However, as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story already included a prominent character, Galen Walton Erso, with that first name, Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide author Pablo Hidalgo decided to change Torg's first name.[4]
