Biography

Long known for a history of indecisiveness, Commander Davip was placed in charge of the Lusankya during the Third Battle of Borleias. In a somewhat embarrassing incident, Davip managed to accidentally land the Lusankya right in the middle of Commander Wyrpuuk Cha's fleet as it arrived within the Pyria system. As New Republic warships rushed to Lusankya's aid, the Super Star Destroyer luckily was able to blast its way out and annihilate the enemy fleet with its sheer firepower alone.

Davip would go on to support the defense of Borleias from the Yuuzhan Vong for the next several months. During Operation Emperor's Hammer, he personally took command of a turbolaser station—seeing a perverse pleasure in baffling his subordinates in the process. While the Lusankya and its supporting vessels were able to hold the line against enemy forces, it gradually began to succumb to the attrition of battle. Sensing this, Wedge Antilles devised a plan in which Lusankya's weapons were transferred off to supporting vessels, while a massive needle-like structure was constructed within the hull of the Super Star Destroyer and crammed with explosives.

When the time came for the New Republic to abandon Borleias, Davip alone would pilot his former command ship—now converted into a giant missile—on its final mission. With support from the remaining Republic fleet, Davip was able to successfully destroy the Domain Hul worldship, with former Warmaster Czulkang Lah aboard. Davip escaped in a Y-wing as the explosion consumed both ships. Before the mission was to start he remarked to Wedge Antilles, Luke Skywalker, and Mara Jade Skywalker, that he would go down in history as the pilot of the largest one person fighter ever due to the upgrades that had been made to the ship's systems.

In the chaos following the destruction of the Domain Hul worldship, the New Republic was able to successfully withdraw its forces from the Pyria system. For his efforts, Davip was promoted to major general, and became part of the Galactic Alliance Defense Force command staff.
