"They're the workhorses of this outfit, I can tell you that."
―Tiree, referring to the BTL Y-wing starfighter[src]

Tiree was a Human male starfighter pilot in the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War. In 0 BBY, he flew in Gold Squadron as Gold 2 and Jon Vander's wingman in the Battle of Yavin. However, he was first to be shot down by Darth Vader.

BiographyEdit

"Computer's locked. Getting a signal... The guns. They've stopped!"
―Tiree[src]

Vander was fond of the youth, believing he would become one of the greatest pilots in the Rebellion, and thus placed Tiree one point over the veteran 'Pops'. He was well noted for participating in a raid on Corellia, where he helped save engineers who proved invaluable to the Rebellion. Later on in the Galactic Civil War, during one of the Rebels' trench runs on the Death Star, Tiree's Y-wing was shot at by Darth Vader and the engines were hit, causing some of the electrical wiring to electrocute him, killing him before his Y-wing exploded.[1]

Garven Dreis apparently wanted him in Red Squadron due to his navigation skills.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Tiree was played by Jeremy Sinden in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.
