Corporal Dwayne Hicks was a member of the Allied Joint Military, part of 2nd Battalion Bravo Team. He was subsequently involved in combating the Axis forces at the colony. Hicks was a heavy smoker. Unlike many of the other Marines in the squad, he was quiet and subdued, not really involving himself in their raucous bantering, and he remained very much in the background during the initial stages of the operation. Only later, when command passed to him, did he begin to show his true colors and leadership abilities. Above all, he managed to keep a level head and stay calm throughout the incident, even when the odds continued to pile up against the survivors and those around him began to crack. He was arguably by far the most mature of the Army dispatched to Endor.
