"You are to be promoted to Phoenix Leader. Our fighter pilots will benefit greatly from your expertise."
―Jun Sato, to Hera Syndulla[src]

Phoenix Leader was the callsign attributed to the lead pilot of Phoenix Squadron. During the Imperial blockade of Ibaar, a human male served as Phoenix Leader until his death during the mission. After the mission's success, the Twi'lek female Captain Hera Syndulla was promoted to Phoenix Leader by Commander Jun Sato.[1] Although Phoenix Squadron ceased to exist as a unit due to casualties inflicted during the Battle of Atollon,[4] Syndulla continued to hold the title within the Rebel Alliance[5] as late as the year 1 BBY.[6]
