Background: Bodhi Rook was born on Jedha and spent his childhood there. As a young man, he had two encounters with the law – one for illegal betting on sports and the other for reckless driving of an airspeeder. He lived with his mother and was not allowed to use knives in the kitchen, but on one occasion, she taught him how to cut a vegetable stalk. While on Bamayar, he developed a crush on someone but was turned down when he expressed his feelings.

He joined the Galactic Empire with dreams of becoming a starfighter pilot. Rook attended the Terrabe Sector Service Academy in 7 BBY and trained in flight for two years. However, his low test scores prevented him from qualifying for the Starfighter Program. Two years later, Rook became an ensign and was assigned to cargo shuttles that transported Imperial documents and artifacts.

During his career, Rook had to flee from a group of rebels who were shooting at his shuttle, which was already on fire.

Rook defected from the Empire after Imperial scientist Galen Erso entrusted him with an important message. Erso asked him to seek out Saw Gerrera, a resistance fighter. The Empire put a 75,000-credit bounty on Rook after his return to Jedha. Gerrera was initially skeptical of Rook’s motives and subjected him to an interrogation by a Mairan named Bor Gullet, temporarily driving Rook insane.

Cassian Andor, a rebel operative, later helped Rook regain his sanity. After seeing her father’s message, Rook met Jyn Erso, Galen’s daughter, who learned the truth about Rook’s defection. With Cassian, Jyn, the blind warrior Chirrut Îmwe, and the mercenary Baze Malbus, Rook escaped Jedha as the Death Star destroyed Jedha City with its superlaser. On their way, Bodhi informed Cassian and Jyn that Galen was at the Imperial flight station on the stormy planet of Eadu.

Despite the stormy conditions, Cassian and his reprogrammed Imperial security droid, K-2SO, managed to land their U-wing near the Imperial flight station. Bodhi, along with Chirrut, Baze, and K-2SO, stayed aboard while Cassian went to assassinate Galen. Jyn followed Cassian in an attempt to stop him, and the two were caught up in the Rebel Alliance’s raid on the Eadu flight station. Bodhi and his companions found the Imperial cargo shuttle SW-0608 and used it to save Jyn and Cassian from being killed by stormtroopers. The rebels then fled off-world to the rebel base on Yavin 4.

Bodhi attended a meeting of the Alliance High Command to discuss the threat posed by the Death Star. He also listened to Jyn’s impassioned speech urging the rebels not to give up. Later, he accompanied Cassian, Jyn, K-2SO, Chirrut, and Baze, along with several members of the Marine Corps, on an unsanctioned mission to steal the Death Star plans from the Imperial security complex on the planet Scarif. The rebels used the Imperial cargo shuttle they had stolen on Eadu for that mission. Rook and K-2SO served as the team’s pilots. When Alliance air traffic control requested their callsign, Rook replied, “Rogue One,” but was told there was no such unit. K-2S0 responded that there was one now and took the ship into space.

After arriving above Scarif, Rook and his Rogue One comrades found the planet enveloped by a deflector shield generated by a Shield Gate. Two Imperial Star Destroyers also defended Scarif. Rook notified gate control and requested a landing pad. Since their arrival was not scheduled, Rook told the gate officer that they had been rerouted from Eadu and ordered K-2SO to transmit the clearance codes. After the Imperials accepted their clearance code, the rebels landed their shuttle at the Imperial security complex’s Landing Platform Nine.

When an Imperial inspection crew consisting of an officer, a technician, and two stormtroopers boarded the cargo shuttle, Bodhi and K-2SO welcomed them. They led the Imperial crew to the cargo bay, where the other rebels quickly took them out. Cassian, Jyn, and K-2SO infiltrated the security complex to reach the data vault and steal the plans. At the same time, Rook stayed aboard the cargo ship SW-0608 to maintain contact with the Rebel Alliance command on Yavin 4. Baze, Chirrut, and the Rebel Marines staged a diversionary attack to draw the base’s garrison away from the data vault. Although not actively involved in the fighting, Rook provided support by confusing Imperial officers with false reports on rebel movements throughout the base, delaying or redirecting Imperial reinforcements.

During the Battle of Scarif, Cassian instructed Bodhi to send a message. The pilot bravely ran out with a cable backpack to connect the SW-0608 to a landing pad comms relay. Rook contacted Admiral Raddus’s fleet to inform them they needed to destroy the Shield Gate to transmit the Death Star plans. After the broadcast, a shoretrooper threw a C-25 fragmentation grenade into the shuttle, killing Bodhi Rook in the ensuing explosion.
