Wedge Antilles is a popular character who appeared briefly in all three original trilogy Star Wars films (and a cameo in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) as a starfighter pilot. He is also featured in the tie-in novels in both Star Wars Legends and Star Wars Expanded Universe continuities.
As one of the few characters outside the main cast to appear in all three films of the original trilogy, and the only non-main character to be involved in the destruction of both Death Stars, Wedge was frequently featured as a supporting character in the Legends-era spin-offs; in particular, he was one of the central characters of the Star Wars: X-Wing novels and comics.
A popular fan nickname for Wedge is "Weginald". Common slash pairings for Wedge include Wedge/Luke Skywalker and Wedge/Tycho Celchu (Legends).
