Hewex was a male human who served as a Major in the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War against the Alliance to Restore the Republic. During the war he was stationed on the moon of Endor in a bunker housing a shield generator which provided protection for the Death Star II battlestation being built in Endor's orbit. The Major was one of three commanders in the bunker, alongside Colonel Dyer and Commander Igar.[2] During the Battle of Endor, in which the Alliance attacked the incomplete Death Star, a team of Rebels was sent to the moon's surface in order to destroy the shield generator bunker. The Rebel General Han Solo successfully tricked Hewex into sending several squads of Imperial troopers stationed in the bunker out to aid in the fighting, allowing a group of Rebels to enter the bunker. Hewex and the remaining men in the bunker were then forced to surrender to the Alliance soldiers, who began to plant charges inside he bunker before Imperial reinforcements arrived and captured them. The Rebels were ultimately successful in destroying both the bunker and the Death Star. Hewex had fair skin and brown hair.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Hewex was played by an uncredited extra in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi and received no name in the film.[1] He was first identified in the Endor Limited set of the Star Wars Legends Star Wars Customizable Card Game[3] with the name then being confirmed as canon by the reference book Ultimate Star Wars.[2]
