Grizz Frix was a Human male from Devaron who served as a pilot in the Alliance to Restore the Republic. He was raised in a prejudiced society, as Humans on Devaron were in a minority. Since a more tolerant society was impossible under Emperor Palpatine's rule, Frix found his escape through piloting.
