Biography

Ten Numb, a former bounty hunter and demolitions expert, joined the Alliance to Restore the Republic and was assigned to Blue Squadron. During the assault on the second Death Star, Ten Numb was ordered to lead a B-wing attack against Imperial command ships. He carried out meritorious service during the battle, and was promoted as Blue Leader after the conflict.

Following the truce at Bakura, Ten Numb helped combat forest fires on the forest moon of Endor, using his B-wing's reconfigured weapons systems to spray fire extinguishing fluid over the canopy.[1]

He accompanied Luke Skywalker and various members of Rogue Squadron to Corellia, where he was separated from the group when he followed Imperial Storm Commandos on a stolen speeder bike. He was captured by General Weir, who took him to Tralus. The other Rogue Squadron members followed his signal, but arrived too late, as Ten was killed during interrogation.[1]

Behind the scenes

In the movie, Ten wore a red uniform, as did all the B-wing pilots. Easily mistaken for Nien Nunb, Ten can be seen in this uniform on an original Topps Return of the Jedi trading card as well as in the film during the briefing and the celebration on Endor.

The Decipher CCG card and both Hasbro action figures depict him in a white uniform. This is based on a preproduction image of the character where he was wearing a white uniform, not on his film appearance. This is largely attributed to the (at the time) only known photo of Ten Numb in the book Star Wars Chronicles, as most assumed the red suited Sullustan on Endor was, in fact, Nien Nunb.

He also appears in the comics wearing a white uniform. The LEGO B-wing playset includes Ten in a white uniform as well.
