Background: Tycho Celchu (pronounced /’taɪko ‘sɛltʃu/) was a renowned starfighter pilot for the Rebel Alliance and New Republic, serving as Rogue Leader for approximately a decade, before becoming a general in the Galactic Alliance Defense Force. A native of Alderaan, he joined the Imperial Navy as a TIE Fighter pilot. He was speaking with his family by HoloNet when Alderaan was destroyed by the first Death Star, an event which pushed him into defecting to the Rebel Alliance. Celchu quickly became an ace pilot with the elite Rogue Squadron. There he fought alongside Wedge Antilles, who became his lifelong best friend.

Celchu flew in the Battles of Hoth and Endor, as well as in several campaigns for the New Republic during which he became the second-in-command of Rogue Squadron and began a romantic relationship with the intelligence agent Winter. In 5 ABY, during a spy mission to Coruscant, he was captured by Ysanne Isard and imprisoned in the dreaded Lusankya prison. She attempted to brainwash him, but he resisted and was eventually able to escape. He fell under a cloud of suspicion due to his time there, with many fearing he had been turned into a double agent. He later helped Antilles rebuild Rogue Squadron and aided in the Liberation of Coruscant. Events came to a head when he was accused of murdering fellow Rogue Corran Horn and was put on trial for treason. Celchu’s name was completely cleared when Horn, having been only captured and not killed, escaped from Lusankya with evidence that proved Celchu had never succumbed to Isard.

Celchu helped bring down Isard in the Bacta War, then led Rogue Squadron while Antilles formed Wraith Squadron. He fought in the Thrawn campaign and helped defeat Prince-Admiral Delak Krennel before he was handed permanent command of Rogue Squadron when Antilles moved on. He married Winter in 17 ABY, and retired in 19 ABY when peace was reached with the Empire. Celchu returned to service during the Yuuzhan Vong War, during which he was promoted to general. Following the victory, Celchu became a training officer, teaching Antilles’s daughter Syal. When the Second Galactic Civil War broke out in 40 ABY, Celchu was serving as an analyst for Supreme Commander Cha Niathal and he found himself on opposite sides from Antilles. He was able to transfer Syal to a position liaising with the Jedi, who had begun opposing the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances, but put himself in danger opposing a Jedi attempt against Chief of State Jacen Solo out of his sense of duty, though he did not support Solo himself. When Niathal split with Solo, Celchu supported her, and after Solo was defeated he retired for the second time.
