Paige Tico was a Resistance gunner aboard a MG-100 StarFortress bomber. Her bomber flew during the evacuation of D'Qar against the First Order fleet.

Biography[]

Paige and her sister, Rose Tico, joined the Resistance after witnessing the First Order treatment of their homeworld in the Otomok system. Paige became a gunner aboard a StarFortress bomber, while her sister Rose became a maintenance worker aboard the Resistance cruiser Raddus.

During the evacuation of D'Qar, Paige's bomber, the Cobalt Hammer, flew against the First Order fleet with the rest of Cobalt Squadron. Leading the enemy attack was the First Order Dreadnought Fulminatrix. The Resistance bombers were quickly destroyed by enemy fighters while on their attack runs, leaving the Cobalt Hammer as the final survivor. After a TIE Fighter knocked out the bombardier, Paige climbed the access ladder to release the bombs. Another TIE hit the cockpit area, killing the pilot and flight engineer, which knocked Paige down the ladder.

Lying on her back on the grate at the bottom of the bomb bay, Paige was able to see the detonator remote above her at the top of the ladder. In an attempt to knock the detonator down, Paige began kicking the ladder. After several impacts, the remote fell through space and was caught by Paige. With the shouts of Poe Dameron ringing in her ears, Paige Tico released the Cobalt Hammer's proton bombs, which destroyed both the StarFortress and the Fulminatrix.
