Tallissan Lintra, nicknamed "Tallie," was a human female pilot who served as a lieutenant in the Resistance. Before joining the Resistance, she lived on a farm with her father on Pippip 3. During the war against the First Order she piloted an RZ-2 A-wing starfighter, serving as Blue Leader during the evacuation of D'Qar until her demise at the hands of missiles fired by Kylo Ren's TIE Silencer, taking out the rest of the Resistance Starfighter Corps alongside her.

Tallissan Lintra was born in 12 ABY long after the fall of the Galactic Empire. During her early life she lived on a farm on Pippip 3, where she learned how to fly using her father's RZ-1 A-wing.
In 28 ABY, Princess Leia Organa created the Resistance a small military force with the objective to oppose the First Order. At some point before 34 ABY, Lintra joined the Resistance and became one of their most capable pilots, impressing even Poe Dameron with her skills. By 34 ABY, Lintra had become a lieutenant in the Resistance.
During the Resistance's evacuation of D'Qar, Lintra flew an RZ-2 A-wing starfighter using the callsign Blue Leader, she was tasked to escort the Resistance bombers and lead the Resistance starfighter forces into battle. After Commander Dameron eliminated all the turbolasers on the Fulminatrix's surface, Lintra and the rest of the fighters started their approach to the Mandator IV-class Siege Dreadnought. After a dogfight with several First Order TIE fighters, Lintra ordered the bombers to start their dropping sequence, however the majority of the Resistance bombers were destroyed after one spiraling TIE cockpit detonated the proton bombs in one of the bombers. The only bomber left managed to drop its explosives destroying the dreadnought. While Lintra observed the destruction of the ship, she and the rest of the surviving fighters returned to the Raddus.
After successfully fleeing from D'Qar the Resistance fleet dropped out of hyperspace. Unknown to the Resistance, the First Order had tracked them through hyperspace and began an attack on their fleet. After receiving orders from General Organa, Lintra and the rest of the surviving fighters started up their fighters in order to engage the First Order, but before they could take off from the hangar, Kylo Ren piloting his TIE Silencer fired a missile into the hangar taking out Lintra, along with the rest of the starfighters.
