"A BT-7, if I'm not mistaken. One of the Pollad designs—a very fine vessel, appropriate for the Republic's best."

Ryden Pollad was an eccentric starship designer who worked for the starship company Rendili Hyperworks,[2] where the designer developed the BT-7 Thunderclap assault craft[1] for the Republic Army's Special Forces Division.[2] Pollad's style was well known in the galaxy, and the battle droid M1-4X was able to identify the Thunderclap as the work of the Rendili designer immediately upon sighting the vessel.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Ryden Pollad was first mentioned in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a video game released by BioWare and LucasArts in 2011,[3] and the game's 2012 reference guide Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia identified Pollad's first name.[2] However, neither source specified Pollad's gender or species.
