"Mauler" Mithel, designated DS-61-2, was a Human TIE pilot specially trained to be Darth Vader's left wingman as a member of Vader's Black Squadron. He flew the TIE/ln starfighter designated Black 2 during the Battle of Yavin.
- "Look out!"
- ―Mithel's last words to Darth Vader
He had achieved twenty-seven Rebel kills prior to the Battle of Yavin, and he marked them by flames painted on the hull of his fighter.
Mithel's fighter collided with Vader's TIE Advanced x1 when the Millennium Falcon entered the battle. Vader was sent spinning into deep space, while Mithel was killed when his fighter impacted against the trench wall.
