- "We're going to be respectful now"
- ―Jez to Han Solo
Jez was a Human male from Alderaan. The day before Alderaan's destruction by the Galactic Empire's first Death Star, Jez went to Delaya with friends, Mazi and Lan, to watch a smashball tournament. Following his homeworld's destruction, Jez and his friends became thieves to survive on Delaya. They tried to rob Princess Leia Organa but were called off by Ferus Olin, who threatened to stop giving them odd jobs. Afterward, the three decided to join the Rebel Alliance as soldiers.
After Alderaan was destroyed, Lan and his companions were left to fend for themselves, surviving on Delaya by becoming thieves. Ferus Olin, a former Jedi and another survivor of Alderaan, tried to dissuade them from turning to crime by giving them various small jobs to earn credits. When Princess Leia Organa made a visit to Delaya to assist the refugee effort and recruit new members to the Rebel Alliance, Jez, along with Mazi and Lan, attempted to rob her. Han Solo tried to placate the orphans, but the standoff was broken when Olin disarmed Mazi, who was holding Organa at knife-point with a vibroblade. After the incident, Jez and his friends joined the Rebel Alliance as soldiers.
