From the Movies

A veteran of the Naboo Space Fighter Corps, Ric Olié was the leader of Bravo Flight and had the honor of flying Queen Amidala's Royal Starship to and from Naboo. Answerable directly to Captain Panaka, Olié was capable of flying any craft on Naboo.

During the Battle of Naboo, Olié's squadron of N-1 starfighters were successful in destroying the Trade Federation's Droid Control Ship with the help of Anakin Skywalker.

From the Expanded Universe

Olié started flying when he was a kid, earning a reputation as "Reckless Ric" for his hot-rodding flights through the skies of Naboo. He eventually tempered his boundless love of flight with the discipline needed to command a starfighter squadron. Like many pilots, Olié has a superstitious streak; while he hasn't forged a real friendship with his astromech R2-A6, he does consider the green-trimmed droid a good luck charm.

Behind the Scenes

The fighter pilot uniform was originally designed in costume sketches by Iain McCaig. The key challenge was in designing military uniforms for a utopian society that still looked imposing. Finally, McCaig was inspired by the look of World War I combat fliers.
