Nala Hetsime was a Human male from the planet Pa Tho who lived during the Galactic Civil War. He served as a pilot for the Alliance to Restore the Republic. In the year 3 ABY, he was stationed at Echo Base on the planet Hoth. Hetsime was part of the base's pilot contingent consisting of Rogue Flight, Blue Squadron, and Green Squadron. During the Battle of Hoth, when the Galactic Empire invaded Echo Base, Rogue Group was formed from the three Rebel squadrons. Hetsime was a part of that formation, under the call sign of Rogue Seven, with Cinda Tarheel serving as his gunner. Hetsime took part in defending Echo Base from the Imperial Blizzard Force.

Personality and traitsEdit
During Nala Hetsime's time with Rogue Squadron, he wore an orange jumpsuit with a helmet displaying the Rebel Alliance's insignia. A good pilot, Hetsime could fly anything—whether it was streaking through hyperspace or a few meters above Hoth. Dour and laconic, Hetsime was a mystery to his fellow pilots, who failed to draw more than the most basic information out of him. Nonetheless, they couldn't argue with his bravery in the cockpit.
