|Born and raised on Dantooine, Arek Solenar grew up as a scholar and a gentleman. He did well in his studies and excelled in athletics. His dream of flying was granted when his parents allowed him to take airspeeder lessons. Life seemed to be a fairy tale for young Arek, until events changed everything.
Hearing word that the Rebellion had a base on Dantooine caused the Empire to send troops to the quiet world to investigate. Arek's parents did not appreciate the invasion of their privacy and demonstrated it by becoming irritated with the disruption of their everyday lives. Not appreciating the attitude, the stormtroopers insisted on doing their jobs until Arek's father got angry and started to react physically. The stormtrooper reacted by shooting Arek's parents as he walked into the room. As the trooper took aim at Arek, he was called away by his commander. Vowing to take revenge on the Empire for the death of his parents, Arek took his inheritance, located the Rebellion and joined their ranks as a soldier.
During his basic training, Arek's talents with flying were discovered. He was enlisted in flight school, where he completed his training in near-record time. From there, he accepted an invitation to join Green Squadron, where he became one of the youngest A-Wing pilots in the Rebellion.
Arek continues to fly missions for Green Squadron and is considered one of the squadron's better pilots. He does not socialize much outside of the other pilots of Green Squadron but has been known to compete in simple contests with challengers from other squadrons.
