Baron Soontir Fel

Soontir Fel was the principle flight instructor at the Academy which Luke Skywalker wished to attend at the outset of A New Hope. As such, he was responsible for training Wedge Antilles and various other pilots that would eventually betray their Academy training for the Rebellion. Indeed, it was their very betrayal that lost Fel his teaching job.
After he was forced out of the Academy, he returned to active flight duty and had various encounters with his old students. In one such encounter, he was shot down (but uninjured) by Wedge Antilles, who managed to secure his old teacher's defection.
The main cause for Fel's defection to the Alliance was the revelation that his wife, actress Wynssa Starflare, was in fact Wedge's sister. By joining the Rebel cause, he had a better chance of finding his beloved.
It is currently unknown, but possibly not entirely accidental, whether Soontir Fel is related to the Fel family of Star Wars: Legacy.
