THE DARK TIMES
When cadets Wedge Antilles and Derek “Hobbie” Klivian attempted to defect with Sabine Wren to the rebellion, Skerris personally engaged them, following in his TIE interceptor. Thanks to a last minute save by Sabine’s friends, he failed in destroying the trainees. Later, Skerris would pilot the experimental TIE defender in a battle with the Ghost and Gold Squadron in the Archeon Nebula.
Skerris became vengeful following his interactions with the rebels. When Phoenix Squadron launched an attack on the Imperial blockade at Lothal, he recklessly pursued Hera Syndulla in his TIE defender elite -- with fatal consequences. Skerris foolishly followed Syndulla into Imperial fire, destroying his craft's shields. Syndulla then waited for the opportunity to strike, blasting Skerris' ship and sending it careening to its destruction.
