Battle of Yavin (2) »
||"Mauler" Mithel, designated DS-61-2, was a male Human TIE pilot specially trained to be Darth Vader's left wingman as a member of Vader's Black Squadron. He flew the TIE starfighter designated Black 2 during the Battle of Yavin. In his youth, Mithel honed his skills poaching Bothan sky dragons in his father's T-16 skyhopper. Mauler had a son named Rejlii Mithel, who became a tractor beam operator on the Chimaera. He kept a holo of Rejlii on the control yoke of his TIE fighter. He had achieved twenty-seven Rebel kills prior to the Battle of Yavin, and he marked them by flames painted on the hull of his fighter. In addition, alongside Vader himself and fellow co-pilot "Backstabber", he had been infamously involved in various assaults on Ralltiir and Mon Calamari, which increased Black Squadron's reputation as the Empire's most feared squadron. Mithel's fighter was with Vader's TIE Advanced x1 when the Millennium Falcon entered the battle. When Vader's right wingman was killed, Mithel panicked and tried to avoid the freighter's laser fire, only to collide with Vader's TIE Advanced. Vader was sent spinning into deep space, while Mithel was killed when his fighter impacted against the trench wall and exploded.
