Heff Tobber was a human pilot who served as a Lieutenant in the Rebel Alliance just before the Battle of Yavin. At the beginning, Tobber was stationed as a transporting pilot on a rebuilding post. However, when the base was abandoned and the pilot ventured to Yavin 4 and joined Blue Squadron. There, Tobber quickly became one of the most popular U-wing pilots in the infantry. In the year 0 BBY, he took part in the Battle of Scarif under the call of Blue Eight, but did not get through the planetary shield over Scarif with his space ship and therefore supported Green Squadron in orbit around the planet.
Behind the scenesEdit
Heff Tobber was portrayed by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story First Assistant Director Toby Hefferman, who originally donned a costume for still photography. Later events resulted in him becoming an X-wing pilot on-screen.
