When I was a teenager, I subscribed to a Star Wars Comic book, translated into Swedish. In one issue, there was a story that took place some short time after the Battle of Yavin, about a Rebel pilot who, for some unknown reason, was grounded during the battle and his X-wing was instead given to Luke Skywalker.
This made him bitter (for having missed the most glorious battle in the history of the Rebel Alliance) and hostile towards Luke (the brat who'd stolen his ship and his glory). The story goes on to him wanting to prove himself just as good as Skywalker.
I can't remember the character's name and very little of his appearance (which was generic), but I do recall him being human.
Neither can I remember the issue or name of the comic book (If I had, it would probably be a Swedish name and do you no good anyway).
I would love answers to all questions, but anyone of them will be good enough.
- Who am I talking about?
- Is this event considered to be any level of canon? If so, which?
- Which comic book and issue does this story take place in?
