||Blount was a Human male who fought in the Galactic Civil War. Originally a member of the Galactic Empire's Imperial Security Bureau, he defected to the Rebel Alliance before 4 ABY and joined Alliance Intelligence. As a lieutenant, he also served the Rebels as a pilot, spy, and scout, and by 4 ABY, he was considered a seasoned combat veteran. When the Alliance launched an assault on the Empire's unfinished Death Star II battlestation in that year, Blount joined the crew of the YT-1300 light freighter Millennium Falcon, whose pilot, Lando Calrissian, led the Alliance Fleet's starfighter contingent during the attack. The Empire anticipated the strike, however, and when the Rebel fleet arrived at their target in the Endor system, they found the station protected by a deflector shield. As they fended off attacking Imperial fighters, Blount served in a post aboard the Millennium Falcon. The freighter squared off against Imperial Star Destroyers during the battle, and eventually entered the incomplete Death Star when a Rebel strike team on the Forest Moon of Endor below was able to blow up the station's shield generator. Calrissian destroyed the Death Star's reactor core; the station soon after exploded and the Rebels won the day.
