- "How many times have you flown it?"
"Me? Oh I don't fly, too dangerous. But theoretically, it should fly!"
- ―Sabine Wren and Quarrie discuss the B-Wing prototype
Quarrie was a Mon Calamari starship engineer who lived on the remote planet of Shantipole during the Age of the Empire. After the early rebellion suffered losses against the Galactic Empire during an attempted blockade run, rebel Hera Syndulla and members of her crew came to Shantipole in order to retrieve the prototype B-Wing, Prototype B6, which he dubbed the "Blade Wing". Quarrie was initially uninterested, as he did not believe Syndulla to be the right pilot for his ship. However, her story of growing up and dreaming of being a pilot swayed Quarrie's mind, and he allowed her to test the starfighter.
After a successful test run, the starfighter was taken back to the network's fleet. For the journey, he also installed a hyperdrive and an exterior astromech socket on Hera's shuttle Phantom. The Phantom then towered the B-wing prototype to the planet Ibaar. With the B-Wing's advanced weaponry, the rebels were able to break the Imperial blockade over the planet Ibaar and deliver food to the planet's starving populace. Afterwards, Quarrie along with his Lothal astromech droid BG-81 left the network fleet in order to oversee the production of more B-Wings for the rebel cause.
Personality and traitsEdit
Quarrie was a short, male Mon Calamari master engineer who specialized in building starships. He took pride in his work and was eager to experiment with speed, agility, and weapons. Quarrie was not a pilot and was only willing to let the best pilot fly his Prototype B6 starfighter. Quarrie's Prototype B6 became the basis for the rebellion's A/SF-01 B-wing starfighter.
Behind the scenesEdit
Quarrie's name is derived from the name of concept artist Ralph McQuarrie. He first appeared in the Star Wars Rebels Season Two episode "Wings of the Master", which premiered on Disney XD on November 11, 2015. Quarrie was voiced by Corey Burton.
