Summary

Turr Phennir was a Human male hailing from the planet Valahari who served for years as an ace starfighter pilot in the Galactic Empire's 181st Imperial Fighter Group. Recruited into the group by Major Soontir Fel around 1ABY, Captain Phennir spent the next several years battling forces of the Rebel Alliance, the Empire's opponent in the ongoing Galactic Civil War. By 4ABY, he was a major and the fighter group's executive officer. Phennir and the 181st flew in the Battle of Endor that year, which saw Galactic Emperor Palpatine die aboard the Empire's second Death Star battlestation. The defeat caused the Empire to fracture, but the 181st remained loyal to the throne and was called on to defend the planet Brentaal IV from the New Republic, the Alliance's successor state. Phennir had no faith in the Empire's new leadership and urged Fel to seize the planet as his own warlord holding, but the 181st instead flew into a battle that scheming Imperial Intelligence Director Ysanne Isard had already decided they would lose. When the New Republic conquered Brentaal IV and captured Fel, command of the 181st was given to Phennir.
When the crumbling Empire ceased to exist in 11ABY, the Imperial Remnant was formed from the holdings of various warlords, and new Supreme Commander Gilad Pellaeon recruited Phennir and the 181st to aid him in the Orinda campaign of 12ABY. The fighter group and the Executor-class Star Dreadnought Reaper battled New Republic forces in a series of clashes throughout the Mid Rim, ultimately repelling them in the Orinda system and securing the Remnant's borders. One year later, General Phennir and three other pilots of the 181st went on a diplomatic mission to the neutral planet Adumar, whose government also invited representatives from the New Republic. Phennir and his men won the hearts of the locals by frequently engaging them in customary aerial duels to the death, and they pledged themselves to the nation state of Cartann when its leader declared war on the rest of the planet. However, Phennir fled Adumar in his TIE interceptor when the New Republic pilots - flying for the opposing Adumari Union - shot down all three of his fellows. Cartann lost the war, and Adumar joined the New Republic.
